What is snark and why do we love it so much, I wonder? It seems to be a very popular method of communication with those we disagree with. Is that good thing? What does snark mean?
Combination of "snide" and "remark". Sarcastic comment(s).
Also snarky (adj.) and snarkily (adv.) His commentary was rife with snark.
A combination of snide and remark. that makes sense. Well we all know what a remark is but what does snide mean? This time, a real dictionary will do:
adj. snider, snidest Derogatory in a malicious, superior way.
Oof. That sounds really awful. Derogatory? Malicious and superior? That sounds like the language of bullies. 'Snark' sounds like such a cute word. It's really not cute at all though. It sounds like it will probably make me look like a jerk if I use it too much. I do not like that. I should probably stop doing that and probably also stop applauding that kind of thing in others. Hmm. Something to think about.
