    Default what does 'bleah' mean?

    eg.
    Q: I've got some cute preprocessor macros that let me write C code
    that looks more like Pascal. What do y'all think?

    A: Bleah.
    I think It sounds like a part of speech usually expressing emotion and capable of standing alone, such as Ugh! or Wow!

    It's a noise to express dislike or disgust, like 'yeuch'.

    It can be a rather eloquent expression.
