Top Definition
A type of formula-based cliché that uses an old idiom in a new context. A common example: "X is the new Y", a generic form of the original expression "pink is the new black". In order to apply the snowclone, X and Y should be substituted with new words or phrases. For the origin of the word, and to see a list of snowclones, go to Wikipedia.
