What's the difference between "meh" and "feh"?

Is there one? There seems to be, and I'd enjoy hearing an elegant explanation.

"Meh" = "I cannot bring myself to care overmuch." A verbal shrug.

"Bacon or sausage?" "Meh. Whatever."

"Feh" = "The situation disgusts me."

"Bacon or sausage?" "Only two choices? Feh."

Meh = Charles Grant

Feh = Jason David

Meh = Chicago Bears
Feh = New England Patriots

(this from the perspective of a GB Packers fan).

Now I REALLY get it. Nothing like concrete examples. Thanks to Maitri and GW. I get GW's a little better simply because I'm a Whodat.
