Seriously, who WANTS random sized shirts? Like, unless you’re a small who doesn’t mind swimming in tshirts, I can’t see that being usable. As an L to XL, anything below that goes right into the charity bin, and I won’t waste my money.
Uhhhhm. I have all these things already. I actually use these pillows on my couch for naps, because they’re the perfect size. I wear the meh/mediocre shirts on a regular basis (Before I quit my office job to go full time freelance, my office considered meh my work uniform.) Come on, I expected something fresh, thank you much. That’s a wasted opportunity!
On the one hand, all stuff I already have. On the other hand, the other day I was at Costco with my mom and we were looking at a giant couch and she said, " We’d have to get a lot of pillows if we bought this couch," and I said, “I have two sets of Meh pillows! (pause) I should have bought more.”
Looking back through my purchase history I see many items that I threw out shortly after buying them. A Targus backpack with a faulty zipper that would have cost more to warranty ship then I paid. The rearview mirror dashcam with horrible PQ. The blood pressure monitors that failed within 3 uses.
On the flip side I use several meh purchases everyday. Cutting boards, Bluetooth speakers (strum, quirky and other) and a Pursonic.
Have multiples of all the items already. May have still bought if not for the random sizing. I do not need a shirt almost guaranteed to not fit. Then again, I do not really need anything I have ever bought here.
Happy Birthday Meh! No great stories, but I LOVE that meh has stayed true to the one item of questionable need, quality, and value concept, and avoided the temptation of selling everything, including the kitchen sink today, tomorrow, and the next day.
I don’t like some of the things you have changed, but you have to do what you have to do. I think you should do more for the VMP’s who’ve been here for a long time.
And in your spare time, could you please end world poverty and hunger? A few expired packs of candy corn should take care of that don’t you think? It’s not just food, it’s a currency too…LOL.
Enjoy the party, but watch out for the confetti…don’t want to sneeze at the wrong time…;)
I have a very fresh Meh story in my mind… I had an [Unofficial] Meh Birthday celebration Friday in advance of this year’s Mehniversary.
Back in 2015 I received a Marlboro sign as part of a Fuku, and I saw it as an unspoken commission for a piece of art.
I began bugging Matthew for a favor, and he cheerfully came through for me. I then procrastinated, moved, thought about it, and finally worked on this art piece. About a month ago I said I would get the sign done and deliver it to Meh HQ for their birthday. I took Friday the 6th off as a good day to deliver, so I had a hard deadline to make.
True to a good procrastinator’s form, about a week ago I really started working on it. I did a little bit over the past week, and then it really required an epic all nighter to get it done. (There’s no minute like the last minute).
I drove over to Meh HQ Friday afternoon, and was able to deliver the sign and meet some of the people behind the magic. I knew I was in the right place when I saw this:
I first met Ben, who seemed bewildered that I was there. (I later found out that it was because he didn’t hear me knocking at the door, he was just coming out to see what the weather was like.) He got a couple of people to come out, and I was able to reveal the sign.
Unfortunately I didn’t even take a picture of the completed sign. The best I can do is one of the work in progress that I sent to Matthew the night before:
I know some of the people took pictures of the sign in its finished form, and I even posed for some of me there by it, so hopefully those will make their way out.
I have to say thanks and I know I am going to mess up on some names and/or forget someone, because I met quite a few people in a hurry, and even though I hatched this scheme and did it, I couldn’t believe I was actually in Meh HQ. So thanks to Ben for letting me in. Rick for coming out as one of the first to see it. @Denboy and Chris for taking me on a tour and having a wonderful conversation about all things Mediocre. @Jdub came out and said some great things. And @Moose for revealing the origins of the Marlboro sign - it came from his personal collection. @Mandirose, I heard I bashed the Olio watches, I don’t remember doing that so no hard feelings, you buy some awesome stuff! And to all the people I said hi to but didn’t actually meet. The Meh HQ is a place of wonder and I thank you all for welcoming me into it for a few moments of your day. Thanks to you all for what you do to make this a fun place on the Internet, and very many happy birthdays to Meh!
@djslack bahaha I told that to Rick in gest (I mean, everyone hates me because of the Olio watches, I’m aware haha just kidding) Don’t worry, you’re my hero for creating such an awesome piece for us to enjoy everyday!! This kind of stuff makes mediocre such an great place to work.
@ekw Kind of. I’d say it’s in the seedy warehouse at the end of the shining office park. You can find that vibe in the back when you need it.
@Fodder650 Yes, the sign was made Meh-centric on the left, right, and center panels. That pic was about 8 hours prior to completion, I just got delirious and forgot to photograph it all nice at the end.
the most annoying thing is even if i buy the max number allowed, you know meh is going to “randomly” give me all the same (probably incorrect) size. aw well, if i get a smaller size i’ll give it to my niece.
The only reason to only offer the “deal” stating random size (or color, etc.) is that they have a crapload of the least selling size(s) from previous sales. My guess is that the Tees are almost all S with some XXL+ if they even have been a previous offering. Pass.
My father in law and I both got in on day zero and have been having a fuku competition ever since. He’s got me beat by two at the moment, but it’s been a blast each time with how much good natured smack talk they incite.
Random shirt size meh? Really? Guaranteed you’ll send me a size I can’t wear…and I already have the pillows, and not sure I’d use the tumbler. Meh all around…but what the hell…take a chance and hope the shirt will actually fit and I can wear it!
So like some of the others I have my kickstarter shirt around here somewhere. I also remember the thing to decorate their offices. Which I didn’t take part in and kind of regret. How much of that stuff made it to the new offices?
So I went back to my orders to see what I bought because I was here for the launch and I thought Day Zero was a Meh or Mediocre shirt. But my orders don’t show a purchase until September 2014 for a microfiber comforter.
Hmm, this inspired me to looking through my order history, and maybe I’ve fallen into the fallacy of VMP . I don’t order from Meh once a month! In fact, my last order was May 17th. Most of the items were pretty Meh, but there’s some that I use daily - my Shark Rocket vac is going strong, I’ve had Meh sock it to me multiple times (every day I get a pair of probably sourced from Meh socks from my dresser). But the free shipping is nice, and I can’t get VMP back if I cancel, so Meh - I’ll continue donating the $5/month. It’s for a good cause…
Okay, I did it. I’m paying five bucks a month on the off chance I want another case of wine, so why the hell not? I’ve been lurking for just about forever, but apparently my only purchase aside from this one was the casemates launch shirt. ¯_(ツ)_/ ¯
385? That was it? Not only did I happily work for you for free… (although that golden era of free crap was great) but you only got 385 of us to send you money? I think you guys took over my brain. I know you took over my life for a long time. I’m not kidding, if I ever get to Texas I am stopping by at your house and at least expect a cup of coffee and a dip in your pool!
Meh…have you ever consider setting up an online university? You know, a massive open online course based school. I mean, you could solve the problem of college being too expensive! Think about it…all those folks who didn’t get into ivy league schools…or even state schools!
There’s a big demand that’s not being satisfied…and I could see people who would swell withthe pride of being able to say…
I’ve got five of the pillows (@miraclewhispers took one) and two or three of the tumblers (in a box downstairs… I use two of the bubba 25oz ones) and 25 Meh t-shirts (all in 2XL… I reorganized my t-shirts last Friday).
In since day 1… Kickstarter and the free gift card thing. However, I think you guys jumped the shark quite a while ago. It was fun for a while, but the stuff you sell now is pretty dang crappy. Like this, who the hell wants a shirt of unknown size? Wow, really funny and cute, but that wears on you after a while. And the comments section is pretty clicky with many of the same people commenting and lots of inside jokes, which gets tiresome. I’m sure I’ll get flamed by many of these same people. So have at it. Definitely a meh site for sure, now. So great job. Mission accomplished. Love what you’ve done, it’s just a bit old now, at least for me. I check in every so often and see if anything new is happening. Not so far.
@sammydog01 whatever…who cares what you do. Meh asked and I have my opinions. If you fanboys and fangirls want to flame me, I could care less. It’s really hilarious to watch you all get so defensive over your little clicks here.
@blaineg I picture @clarinetbob at his sister’s wedding rehearsal dinner. “Bob, could you tell us a story about Stephanie?” “Sure, Stephanie was a sweet child, so pretty and talented. She was the dog’s favorite. Then she got zits, started dating this loser, and now I’m embarrassed to be related to her. What, you asked.”
@blaineg@sammydog01 Keep going, loser. You’re just proving my point. Same people commenting on these forums, and feel really cool when they trash other people and their opinions, get some likes and be able to type things like fuck off on the internet without getting in trouble with their moms. Meh.com has gone downhill, and this is what it’s become. Have fun while it lasts.
Best Meh: Bought several of these and left on my neighbors porches one night. We live in WV. Half of them thought it was hysterical, a few said “Meh” and one called the cops thinking their home was being targeted.
@Jebbielax Sadly I missed this deal thanks to a nap that evolved into a slumber. If you are down to sell it I will be happy to buy it from you. My family live in Arlington so we can work something out, if you need to get rid of it!
I received the pearl tumbler (a color I didn’t previously have) and a small men’s AA black on black meh shirt. The husband was disappointed the shirt wouldn’t fit him but for now it fits over my pregnant belly. I’m also going to use a meh face pillow instead of one of those maternity pillow wedges until my 'lil mehnion arrives.
My daughter and I appreciate the mehticulous craftsmanship of the pillows and tumbler! And though the Tee doesn’t fit me, it fits her well enough to wear around home. We celebrate Meh’s birthday this way: Happy Mehday!
