"Muh" is Internet slang for “my,” the first-person, possessive pronoun in the English language. On 4chan, a series of image macros mimicking entries in the Scholastic Dictionary of Idioms contain variations of the phrasal template "Muh X" accompanied by descriptions which mock political, religious and ethnic groups.


The exact origin of the term "muh" is unclear. On June 6th, 2003, Urban Dictionary[4] user wyckid submitted an entry for "muh," defining it as a synonym for the word "my."
