A brief (though complete) history of “Mehffort”

For the benefit of those who were intersted, Mehffort is a portmanteau of meh and effort, and is a very popular word in the semester 2, 2008 Maclab dialect of English. It is used to convey one’s lack of motivation towards a particular task. In context:

  • Me: Paris, help me come up with a witty slogan for the TUCS T-Shirt.
  • Paris: Mehffort.

As proud denizens of the Maclab, my ACM ICPC team for this year decided to adopt the word as part of our team name.
