Ordinarily the Snipet would ignore such as this. But it is needful to point out that this is ONLY a symptom of society's problems today. Shocked? I'm not. Oh my god, South Park mocks Irwin | the Daily Mail: "The creators of South Park have never been afraid to upset celebrities - and many of the show's viewers. From jokes about religion and homosexuality to four-letter tirades, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have always mixed shock tactics with satire in the hit cartoon series. But they were accused of hitting a new low last night after lampooning the demise of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin just weeks after his death. The latest episode shows an animated Irwin in Hell with a stingray poking out of his bleeding chest."

    Hi Jack. Isn't this entire blog about making fun? Don't you just think this episode of Southpark is in bad taste? Don't you still believe "We are all judgemental in our ways, Folks. Its just that we choose different things to judge."?

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".


Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.


Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.


In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
