(v)To be in a crowded area, such as a school hallway, and to call out someone's name in a voice other than your own, only to hide when the unsuspecting person turns around, completely baffled. At this point, you yell "sniiipe!!"

To use either the right or left arm to cover one's face from the nose down, lining up the tip of the nose with the crease in the elbow. One should look over his/her arm with eyes squinted to give the appearance of looking down the scope of a rifle, but the the eyes should have a clear line of sight of the person that is being sniped. The snipe can be use to nonchalantly get someone's attention.

An extremely small bowl that is finished in one shot. It is important to remember to verbally announce the term, "SNIIIIIPES", before you begin to hit your bowl.
"Mikey, you want to rip bowls? Sniiiiipes!!"
"That's not even a real bowl, that's a snipe"
"I fully just sniped that bowl"

basically, awsome. a snipe can be a noun (person place or thing) and a verb. it cannot be a adverb (ex. snipley {prounounced snipe-lee.} thats a fail.) only ballers, bosses, and g's can use this term. others (who are non-snipes) cannot use this without becoming a poser.
antonyms: fail
Situation: You and your friend are at Dunkin Donuts. You got a 25 box of Munchkins and there is only one chocolate left. You grab it out of the box before your friend can. You are allowed to exclaim, "Snipe!"

Situation: You are at a basketball game and a player totally aces a three pointer. It is appropriate to say, "What a snipe!"
