Overview


The Snark Handbook is back and it’s more uproarious than ever. This revised and expanded edition contains even more snide remarks, witty comebacks, and biting commentary than the bestselling first edition. With dozens of hilarious jokes, plus lists such as “Snarky Movie Descriptions,” “Money Can’t Buy You Happiness, But it Can Buy…”, and “Excuses to Get Out of a Date,” it’s easy to find the perfect bit of irreverence to fit every mood and occasion. The Snark Handbook also features hundreds of the best quotes from beloved heroes of snark:

“If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.”-Dorothy Parker
“I never forget a face, but in your case, I’m happy to make an exception”-Groucho Marx
“There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best part.”-Charles Dickens
“I’m at an age where my back goes out more than I do.”-Phyllis Diller

With charming black and white illustrations to accompany the wry remarks on every page, The Snark Handbook is as fun to look at as it is to read. It’s a must-have whether you want to brush up on your snark, need a good laugh after a bad day, or are looking for the perfect gift for your favorite smartass.

The word "Snark" grabbed my immediate attention. It's defined as: biting wit, a smartass remark, a slyly disparaging comment, a bastardization of "snide remark." (Preface, p. ix) This is a book you might pick up as a gift, only to discover that you MUST have a copy for yourself! From numerous sources, Dorfman has brought together a rollicking collection of anecdotes and observations guaranteed to generate laugh-out-loud responses. Its fourteen sections cover the gamut of life's experiences, from Sex to Death and Dying, as credited to numerous pundits or to no one at all. An appendix gives the reader a boost toward becoming an accomplished snarker and includes some great answering machine messages. If you believe laughter is the best medicine, The Snark Handbook is the ultimate first-aid kit!

Besides the current snarky comments which make me laugh and chuckle for hours are the historic references. Who knew people have always been so uniquely and subtly humorous all this time..Yeats and Henny Youngman on the same page!! Who knew. thank you for brightening days when I just needed a good laugh Larry.. and I really care! That younger person inside me really is wondering ..what happened.
