It doesn't really seem to be about whether it's funny or not. I could post five hundred threads about vomiting and someone (well me at least) would consider that funny as hell.

Snarky? Is that a biological off shoot of the Snorks? Kind of snork like but a lot more cutting?

I figure rightly Brandon closed the non-starter Gnome Chomsky thread coz he probably thought as I did that it was not as benign as this thread renders itself in comparison, ie, by not provoking nastiness in place of what is better permissable & identified as snarky and it can be funny in such a zone as this thread created for it. I don't like snarky generally though and definately not "nasty inciting" (for fun or not) such as GC was ~out of character~ looking to do, as I understood it. This thread however will be a wild ride for sure....if it can survive moderation.

If people have to be snarky then sure, do it here, and keep it here is my opinion.

I understood that thread to be a joke. I actually laughed when I read it.

Gnome likely did make the other thread as a joke, but well, knowing VBs tendencies, the mod squad didn't see it as such a good idea.

Yeah, it might have been fun and released some tension. Can't have that.

I have it on good authority that if you sleep with Horatio then you are sleeping with everyone Horatio has slept with (this includes your mom).

Some guy called Horatio pooped in a sandbox?



Or is Horatio a cat as I kinda get the impression he is? If so, why would you want to sleep with him?



Or is that being too snarky?

LMAO - 11 definitions of Snarky - Look at #10!!



http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...=snarky&page=1



thesaurus: cynicism, haughty, sarcasm, snarcastic, snark

1. snarky link send redefine 328 up, 57 down



(adjective) describes a witty mannerism, personality, or behavior that is a combination of sarcasm and cynicism. Usually accepted as a complimentary term. Snark is sometimes mistaken for a snotty or arrogant attitude.Her snarky remarks had half the room on the floor laughing and the other half ready to walk out.

Source: A Gianotto (snipe), Oct 9, 2002

2. snarky link send redefine 113 up, 13 down



Adjective - Any language that contains quips or comments containing sarcastic or satirical witticisms intended as blunt irony. Usually delivered in a manner that is somewhat abrupt and out of context and intended to stun and amuse. Origin: Snark="snide remark".Evelyn always called attention to the proverbial pink elephant in the room with her snarky comments.

Source: Greg, Feb 27, 2005

3. snarky link send redefine 43 up, 8 down



Critical in a curmudgeonly sort of way.



The adjective snarky is first recorded in 1906. It is from dialectal British snark, meaning 'to nag, find fault with', which is probably the same word as snark, snork, meaning 'to snort, snore'. (The likely connection is the derisive snorting sound of someone who is always finding fault.) Most dictionaries label snarky as "Chiefly British Slang." But for the last five or more years, it has become increasingly common in American publications, maybe ones infiltrated by British or Canadian writers and journalists.Anthony Lane is the current champ of the snarky film review.

4. snarky link send redefine 4 up, 7 down



Process, system or software behavior that indicates a mysterious or unknown bug is causing a problem in some unclear or inconsistent manner; more obvious than hinky behavior, but far less clear than outright buggy behavior.Yesterday I wasn't sure if I was just paranoid or if the email really was acting hinky, but today it is downright snarky.

Silverfire & Remilard,



If, dulltasticly, this Horatio thing is about a cat, it reminds of Oatmeal and his "pet" anecdotes, give me a break



what ratio of Horatio is daft enough to be snarkified into a dictionary term ? HAHAHA.



Plus+++ Poppy, aren't you glad you didn't ask?? The list might have been twice as long
