Hey, guess what? Feminists like other feminists and find them sexy, and love to read statistics that prove what they always knew. In other news, registered Democrats don't vote for Republicans, dogs aren't cats and tautologies cannot be made false by mere mortals.

Here are some more useful statistics for you:

100% of Mormon Bloggers love bloggers who are Mormon who agree with everything they say and post salutary, sycophantic comments.

0% of Mormon Bloggers like being snarked by SnarkerNacle Industries LTD., more reviled than DKL, more often banned than outspoken conservatives at BCC and critical commentators at T&S, less side-blog linked than NDBF Gary.
You can quote me as a source.

More amusing is Quimby's defense of the Clintons after mami points out the irony here. Sorry, Quimby, but Bill's feminism is weak, at best. Defend lying adulterers (D-NY) while attacking LDS Church leaders (R-Utah). More circular logic, eh? Defend those in your political circle. Heads up guys, as long as you talk the talk, you can cheat on your wife and lie about it. With a stunning example like this, no wonder guys want to be feminists.

Actually, having been snarked by the Snarkernacle dudes/dudettes twice (or was it three times?), I have to say I enjoyed the experience both (or was it all three?) times.

So, the above stats are wrong.

Yeah, trying to wear your revilement as a badge of honor ala DKL is old hat, especially when neither one of you are particularly reviled.

This latest screed is not even funny. I think you're missing the point of being the snarkernacle: Hello, YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE FUNNY.

Snarky does not equal bitter. Being the snarkernacle does not entitle you to engage in incoherent political rants.

Ivan Wolfe said... @ November 23, 2007 at 7:44 PM

That critique only works if the political rants he is snarking on are actually coherent.

Besides, I don't remember the Snarker saying he/she/it would always be funny. The tagline is "providing necessary negative feedback" - which, in this case (as in all of them, really) is sorely needed.

Oh, well, you caught me making up statistics.

Dear Anonymous,

Go to UrbanDictionary.com and look up the word "snarky" OK? Since when is SnarkerNacle held to your standards? Oh, it isn't. Thanks.

Quimby does note that this post wasn't meant in seriousness, but as a means of alleviating some serious life trauma of the moment. Oh yeah--and we all think Clinton's adultery was beyond the pale. Bleargh.

That hula hoop woman is a freak of nature. In fact, I think she is a robot. Possibly a transformer (are there women transformer; I don't even know.) If she's a real human being, I must go hide my unflexible self under the bed. Of course, I'm probably not limber enough to fit.

Janet said... @ November 24, 2007 at 2:12 PM

BTW, a substantial portion of our Thanksgiving dinner conversation focused on how to distinguish different transformers apart. I may be a gender essentialist after all: we women sat there looking bemused while the guys explained in detail and with great passion difference our double XX chromosomes made invisible.

Snarkimus Prime said... @ November 24, 2007 at 8:21 PM


Yes, there are female transformers. Google search "female transformer" and hit the I feel Lucky button.

From Urban dictionary:

2. a sharp, sarcastic remark; a cutting jest.
—Synonyms 1. joke, witticism. 2. gibe, sally, jape.


a witty remark or sentence.

I submit again: You are supposed to be funny.

Ivan Wolfe said... @ November 25, 2007 at 12:56 PM

Let's use a more reliable source than the Urban dictionary...

The Oxford English Dictionary:
snark, v.
1. intr. To snore; to snort.
2. To find fault (with), to nag.

The Snarker, therfore, does not have to be funny.

Stephen said... @ November 25, 2007 at 7:57 PM


Hmm, Firefox google doesn't have an "I feel lucky" button. That seems to say worlds.

Quimby said... @ November 25, 2007 at 10:07 PM

I do wish you would've paid more attention in reading comprehension. The post you take such delight in deriding is not an attempt to defend the Clinton's feminism, but an attempt to defend the Clinton's right to determine for themselves the strength of their marriage.

But then, I've yet to see any reference to any post I've written which isn't a serious misappropriation of my words and intent. If you're going to deride me, at least deride me for what I've actually said.

Snarkimus Prime said... @ November 26, 2007 at 8:24 AM


And I submit nobody here cares what some anonymous hater thinks.


Misrepresented you? Um, no. You are now backtracking what you clearly stated in your comment #3. You stated "I would wager they have a very strong relationship" so how is your opinion that their relationship is "very strong" a defense of the right of self-determination? It isn't. I do read your stuff before I snark it, every self-contradicting craptastic word of it.

Quimby said... @ November 26, 2007 at 6:11 PM

Nice try, Snarkimus, but it still has nothing at all to do with defending feminism.

Just admit it, you've got a mad keen crush on me. You've never forgiven me for turning you down when you asked me to the Prom. What can I say, I'm a shallow gal, I feel threatened by men who have bigger boobs than me.

annegb said... @ November 26, 2007 at 8:56 PM

I've never minded being snarked.

Snarkimus Prime said... @ November 27, 2007 at 4:26 AM

Quimby, I confess, I am truly, madly, deeply infatuated with you. If only I could be your second husband, to have my soul crushed under your heel, to be the object of your scorn and derision, to lick your boots so as to correct all of the injustices done to women over the eons. How fulfilling that would be.

"less side-blog linked than NDBF Gary."

lol. Alright, this line was pretty funny.

Janet said... @ November 28, 2007 at 11:15 AM

SP--awww, you support polygyny? How sweet ;) Of course, Quimby's honey is a hottie, so beware ;).

Loving the sarcasm back-and-forth. So much more fun.

Quimby said... @ December 2, 2007 at 5:23 PM

Oooh, kinky, Snarkimus! I didn't know you were into the whole dominatrix thing. (I look pretty hot in leather, too.) I'll have to decline your proposal, charming as it is, but we don't have to be married for you to lick my boots. In fact the pair I'm wearing today are downright filthy. Would you like me to send them to you for a good cleaning?
