The exact origin of blarg is unknown, though many claim to have invented the word. Many contend that it is a relatively recent addition to the vocabulary - that it has only been around, perhaps, for less than 20 years - while others are confident that its origin can be traced back to biblical times, but no proof exists for either theory.
Blarg is a nonsense word used to replace virtually any other word in the English language. Known to replace simple greetings like hello
, melancholic resignations like oh well
, as well as endearments like sweetie
and profanity like mother-fucker
, the exact definition is based on the situational context and the speaker's tone.
Being more flexible than other such nonsense words, blarg can also be used to replace entire sentences and even simple conversations, though those situations often depend on facial expressions and even the use of props or hand movements to further define the word usage.
Inquiry: "Blarg?" (quizzically holding out a cigarette) "No thanks, I don't smoke."

Endearment: "Blarg! You shouldn't have!"
Resignation: "Blarg, man..."
Blarg is a unique word, being the only word that not only means anything you want it to, or is used to show disinterest or boredom, but also is the only word that thousands upon thousands of people have claimed to have made up but has been around since man discovered they could use tools. Hobo Dave and Raymond Donn are amongst those who claim to have created the word, as well as some wierd dude called John who worked in the Games Workshop in Falkirk. I have also been known to use the word frequently in the past. I suppose, the true use of this word is to fill a gap in a sentence where appropriate. If a stoned person says "blarg", it is usually used to replace a word they cannot think of, or which they have forgotten.

The word blarg has no concrete or absolute meaning. Its meaning is derived all from how you say it and in what mood you say it. If you say it depressedly in a low, melancholy tone, it is synonymous with a sigh or expression of sadness. If it's said in an apathetic tone, it means you're in a state of ennui.
