Origins: Lewis Carroll's "The Hunting of the Snark" (1874)

Witty sarcasm, used to belittle someone or something without becoming ad hominem. Also used to describe practical jokes of a particularly funny and sabotaging kind.
He was so snarky in his review of the movie, I lol'd, but the fanbois got butthurt.

Snarky proper noun: Nickname for the delivery of Amazon products arriving on your front porch whose box bears the amazon-logo smiley face, which upon closer inspection resembles more of a sneer to remind you about the overarching regret you feel for possessing the combination of traits that make said delivery so commonplace: late-night impulsiveness, general laziness, and smugness for being a Prime member.
“Can you grab all the shit off the porch on your way in? Looks like snarky came again”
“Did you order anything lately honey? Looks like snarky took a dump on the porch again.”

Snarky refers to a concise, clever comment that's referential to something. It's normally jagged, like sarcasm, but it involves more creative thinking than a sarcastic comment does. It can be in reference to something from popular culture, or a turn-of-the-phrase that creates something original from it's source material.
You're sitting on an airplane, with a family full of annoying young children seated behind you, who are kicking your chair, being noisy and generally irritating...

You turn to the person seated next to you, and say in a snarky fashion:

"Hell is other people's children."
