WTF do the terms: meh, fey and twee mean?


by Anonymousreply 1709/25/2014

Those are Gwynneth's three children.

"Meh" means I cant be bothered to care.

"Fey" is connected to faerie and means light in the loafers.

"Twee" means too adorable for its own good, like an Irish leprechaun spouting folksy lessons in a precious children's musical.

OP, try Urban Dictionary and stop posting ignorant questions.

You missed feh.

Why are straight meh so stupid?

I love how OP thinks that 'fey' and 'twee' haven't been around for centuries.

Didn't score well on your reading comprehension in high school did you, R6. Nothing in the black part of the OP refers to any sort of time element.

Hope those two years of junior college prepared you for that barista job.

Blah-blah, bitch/OP/R7. You obviously assumed that these words were not in common parlance. Newsflash, honey: everyone but you learned them as children. The 'WTF' part was clearly meant to imply that they were shockingly new, and upsetting to your delicate, Kentuckian sensibilities.

"Nothing in the black part of the OP refers to any sort of time element."

Do you know how to use 'Troll-Dar', dear? You are the OP, so I have no idea why you act like the OP is a different person altogether. And yes, that's what you're doing, and R3 was right to take you to task for creating such a moronic thread.

Wow, OP got served.

Who the fuck doesn't know what 'twee' means?

by Anonymousreply 901/27/2013

Twee is whimsy without wit. It is mimsy-mumsy sweetness without any kind of bite. And that's not for me.

The first time I ever heard the word "Meh" was on THE SIMPSONS.

Lisa: We're the MTV generation. We feel neither highs nor lows. Homer: What's it feel like? Lisa: Meh.

twee-(adj.) exaggeratedly feminine or sweet in an insincere or false manner

There's a Vietnamese-American woman who's a TV reporter in San Francisco named Thuy Vu. Her first name is pronounced "twee" & always makes me giggle (but she's very serious).

And you certainly do bite, Emms.

[quote] "Fey" is connected to faerie and means light in the loafers.

The light in the loafers meaning is relatively recent and came about because people inaccurately associated the word with seeming gay, like a dandy or effem-inate.

My co-stars feel uncomfortable about that sort of thing for some reason. But I don't complain because they're minorities.
