Offer praise at the altar of snarkiness!

The lord of snark, Lawrence Dorfman, is back! With this treasury of backhanded compliments, sarcastic insults, and catty comebacks, Dorfman gives us transformative wisdom that’s sure to change your life—or at least induce a light chuckle.

One question plagues us all: How do we survive all the Sturm und Drang of everyday life? The answer is but one word: snark.

“She wears her clothes as if they were thrown on by a pitchfork.” —Jonathan Swift

“Why don’t you get a haircut? You look like a chrysanthemum.” —P.G. Wodehouse

“He’s a mental midget with the IQ of a fence post.” —Tom Waits

“They hardly make ’em like him anymore—but just to be on the safe side, he should be castrated anyway.” —Hunter S. Thompson

“He has a Teflon brain. . . . Nothing sticks.” —Lily Tomlin

“He has no more backbone than a chocolate éclair.” —Theodore Roosevelt

Snark will keep the wolves at bay (or at least out on the porch). Snark, much like a double scotch, will help you deal with relatives, shopping, and rudeness; it is an outlet for the unleashed vitriolic bile that’s saved itself up over the months. Like a shield, it will protect you while you go about your life. Snark is your answer!
