Wildcard email alias in /etc/alias file


I want to have an address(es) route to 1 email. But I want to "wildcard" the email address...

For example...I want:

Ad nauseum...

in essence "me*" to route to

I've tried adding this in /etc/aliases

But this dosen't produce the desired result...

Any questions/concerns/advice/ideas are greatly appreciated
