The Annals of Rock Snobbery

« Previous · Home Next »


There’s still time to get a copy of The Wine Snob’s Dictionary (nicely written up in USA Today) as a last-minute holiday gift. But at Snob HQ we’re looking to the future. Having exposed the snobby underbellies of Rock, Film, Food, and Wine, we’re contemplating applying the template to sports (e.g. “The Pro Football Snob’s Dictionary,” short versions of which actually appeared in Vanity Fair in 2004 and 2005) and/or race, religion, and ethnicity (e.g., the as-yet-unwritten “Black Snob’s Dictionary,” “Jewish Snob’s Dictionary” and “Irish-American Snob’s Dictionary”). In every area of cultural and social inquiry, there is a deep seam of snobbery that is waiting to be tapped and exploited.

Let us know what you’d like to read next, including Snob’s Dictionaries not proposed above.
