A combination of the words snotty and shark. Usually associated with a comment that is clever, sarcastic and always mean-spirited, often delivered with feigned innocence, and an UNintended tinge of hypocrisy.
SNARKY comments often produce an almost embarrassed laugh from the listener who thinks, "I shouldn't really laugh at what was just said, but it's so TRUE/APPROPRIATE!"
Snarky comments are most effective when spoken in a low voice as to be audible only to those nearby at solemn occassions, such as a funeral.
"HAA-ha!": Nelson from the Simpsons.
At a wedding: "Oh, how INTERESTING! She's actually wearing WHITE!"
At a church service: "Do you think membership would increase if they TOASTED those things?"
"I shouldn't really laugh at what was just said, but it's so TRUE and so SNARKY!"
