Is there any connection between the Queers and the Muffs? (Other than both being Michael Shelley faves.) Because this would sound delightful as a Muffs cut.

There's probably been a lot of parallel evolution on that one, I suspect.

@Skirkie, I almost choked laughing when I saw "Wallet inspector!" Well done!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/2/14 1:20pm Jeff Golick:

That list of book titles -- ...Son of Sniglet... etc. -- so good. I love that kind of list. Reminds me of one of the Halloween eps with an evil leprechaun, and Bart's pulling various critters out of a hole in the ground:
"...goblin?"
"No."
"Hobgoblin?"
"No."

I meant the Cool Dean, dammit.

They do sniglets in the NYT magazine now! They don't call them that, though.

I think the show Community has some with the "cool dean" trope...either that, or I'm confusing it with some other show.

I hate that page of the NYT mag. The one-page mag.? It should be on the Meh List every week.

Agreed, Jeff -- calling things "meh" is meh.

"Hey, that's not the wallet inspector!"
Avatar Wed. 4/2/14 1:31pm nanantatee:

yes, especially when the english language contains a veritable rainbow of the many shades of "meh" banal, mediocre, underwhelming, trite, platitudinous, vapid, commonplace, ordinary, common, stock, conventional, stereotyped, overused, overdone, overworked, stale, worn out, timeworn, tired, just to name a few

the "meh"s have it: cultural devolution in the 21st century

Btw the most successful sniglet of all time, hands down, is "spork"

The pitch on Turntable 1 was at -8 until now!!!! Sorry, everyone. I did think a few records sounded a bit slow.

IIRC "meh" is actually attributed to "The Simpsons."

Thanks for the show, Amanda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/2/14 1:59pm Jeff Golick:

From wiki, on meh:

Meh's popularity surged after its use on The Simpsons.[8][1] It was first used in the 1994 episode "Sideshow Bob Roberts",[1] when a librarian reacts to Lisa's surprise that voting records are not classified. It also appeared later in "Lisa's Wedding" after Marge weaves "Hi Bart" on a loom to try to pique her son's interest in weaving, to which he responds "meh". In the 2001 episode "Hungry, Hungry Homer", Lisa spells out the word for emphasis ("M-E-H"), after Homer tries to interest her (Lisa) and Bart into going to the theme park "Blockoland".
