The internet is a dark and ridiculous place. I'm not telling you anything that you don't already know. One minute you are looking at a cute video of a turtle trying to eat a strawberry and the next thing you know you're on the dark web and hovering your cursor over a box asking you if you are SURE you want to watch this video of a naked woman bouncing her butt up and down on a cake while she farts.


Regardless, even if the extent of the time you spend on the internet is spent on places like Instagram or Twitter, you're bound to have stumbled across stuff that disgusted, flummoxed, or just straight up confused you. Up now? The word "suh."

But what does "suh" mean? Is there a "suh" meaning we don't know about? I spotted a bunch of folks posting this on different Instagram photos and I was baffled. A quick Google search revealed that it was a version of "sir" as spoken by slaves during the Civil War.

I could not believe this was how the kids are using it, so I dug a little deeper and here's what I found: "Suh" is the new "'sup." It's that simple. 


"Suh" is a combination of the words "'sup" and the words "huh." The idea is that when you "suh" someone, you're not just saying hello, you're expressing interest in whatever it is they happen to be doing at the time. It's also considered to be stoner speak. Like, you're so high from toking the marijuana that you mix up your words.

Still a little confused? I got you, boo. Here are 17 examples of how "suh" has been used in memes and other extraneous dank (that means good) internet content.
