A cult television comedy series created by Joel Hodgson (replaced by Mike Nelson after the fifth season)originating from Eden Prairie, Minnesota. It consisted largely of fictional characters making fun of existing cult films, a format which proved to be influential. Original episodes aired on Comedy Central and the SciFi Channel from 1989 to 1999. The show started with a short run on Minnesota UHF station KTMA channel 23 from 1988 to 1989.
Arguments about whether Joel or Mike was better on Mystery Science Theater 3000 are usually pointless.
One of the tricks in the stable of the midwestern playground bully. To snicker-snag someone is to hold them down, dangle a thread of spit out of your mouth and while the spit is dangling, dip your head closer and closer to the victim. threatening to drape the spit on their face. The spit does not reach its target in a true snicker-snag, but is instead, sucked back in at the last possible second. It is a variation on snagging, which is to actually spit on someone. The snicker-snag (and snagging in general) was brought into the popular vernacular by Mystery Science Theater 3000.
"Death by snicker-snag!" - MST3K's Mike Nelson, during a scene in which two guys are fighting and one is holding the other down.
"I want to kick this movie in the groin and snag on it!" - MST3K's Crow, during Starfighters

IRC slang for "word," as in "word to your mother." It originally started in EFNet's #nin, where substituting 3 for e ("w3rd") had become popular leet-speak parlance.
