The King/Queen of Snark is..........
Mindless ramblings ^ | 08/06/2013 | Defiant

Posted on 08/06/2013 8:38:31 PM PDT by Defiant

OK, I admit it. I love snark. I love a well-crafted one, and I love to try my hand at it. Perhaps too often, I will concede. You definitely don't want to be considered "too snarky". But I can't help it. It's just too much fun. When I see a headline that is just screaming out for snark, I jump on the thread, and all too often see that another Freeper has beaten me to my snark.

Did you know that the plural of snark is snark. As in "I posted 5 snark today". Honestly.

While I play at snark, I am an amateur next to some of the practitioners on this august site. I have seen many fine ones over the years, masters at the art. There was a historically classic one just the other day.

The purpose of this post is to determine the greatest, most magnificent snarker on all of FR, and to crown him or her with as the "King of Snark" (or "Queen of Snark", as the case may be. This is FR, so there will be no category for "otherly gendered"). That person will be not gain a throne, throw people in the dungeon, earn a lifetime of unearned wealth or otherwise act like royalty, but they shall be entitled to a modicum of respect and shall be exempt from liability for the damage they cause to monitors and keyboards. I also propose that the winner is given a Death To Viking Kitties card, which they may use only one time and so must use it wisely. That card will allow the bearer to say or do anything just the one time, and even if the Viking Kitties start warming up, and waving their wands and the lightning is flashing, the King (or Queen) may smite those kitties and escape unharmed and no worse for wear. Just the once, though.

Joe ProBono is way up there, in my book. His wit knows no bounds. However, in my opinion, the crown goes to his muse and sometime sidekick Revolting Cat!, whose snark combined with timely and obscure photos render his snark above all other snark.

What say you?

Around here, sometimes it seems like EVERY week is snark week.

There are clinics available that can treat your disorder.

Many plans will cost-share with you for the next 6 months or so...

All bets off after that.

I have long suspected that you bite the heads of crustaceans.

No civilized person would do that. Unless, they perhaps liked crawdads.

JoeProBono has attained "legendary" status already, as far as I'm concerned. Let's just give him the award.

Pissant could have used that Viking Kitty card. He would have needed more than one, though.

The only reason nobody has chosen me is that my snark is so subtle and understated that it’s detectable only by the highest and most perceptive intellects.

I have no idea what you are talking about, but I will add you to the list.

The candidates are JoeProBono, Revolting Cat!, Laz, Pissant, Humblegunner, slings and arrows, null and void, GeronL, MagUSNRET, and Tax-chick. Voting is still ongoing for the coveted crown.

Is it:

Male = Snark or Female = Snarkette? :)

BTW, I am convinced that only INTELLIGENT Freepers are capable of truely blue-ribbon, bust-a-gut and irreproachable snark!!

Low IQ people can’t snark and shouldn’t try.
