The movie last night was completely whelming.

I thought I would be excited by the fair, but I was whelmed at best.

Verb. To Whelm. When someone or something is distinctly average and you are not moved by him/it at all.

You need to do more than just whelm them in your interview. You need to be unforgettable.


"How was that job candidate?"

"He was okay. I was whelmed."

To be in a state of inflicted normality. See also OVER and UNDER whelm.

Not technically a word, but by all logic, it should be.
As referenced in "Clueless": You can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you just be whelmed?
