Definition of snark


  • review of "Powerpuff Girls- The Movie" in Entertainment Weekly 7/3/02. Seems to mean "bite or "snap" or "Sense of irony."
    They may not have the boobies of "Charlie's Angels" and they certainly don't have the snark of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," but the three kindergarteners make up for their lack of irony with laser-power eyes, radical post-post-postfeminist blithe confidence, and some of the coolest retro-futuristic animation style this side of Gerald McBoing-Boing.
