I snickered (pun intended) when I saw this sign taped to a box of Snickers bars in the grocery store.
A dollar and thirty-nine cents doesn’t get you a lot these days, so I’d like to think it’s a good deal for a sniker. But that begs the question: what is a sniker? Sounds like a good opportunity for round two of “Define It”! If you think you know what a sniker is, leave your clever definition in the comments section!
A “Sniker” is someone who wears Snikes, duh.
Ooooo, so what’s a Snike? 😉
It’s the conflation of “sneaky sniper,” of course.
You deserve points for using the word “conflation” in a blog comment. 🙂
I think it might be the generic form of the Snickers bar
Aha! I love it.
And shouldn’t it be “Low Prices” with an “S”?
I think a “sniker” is a type of snake.
I believe (though I could be wrong) that they mean “low priced” as a descriptive phrase. However, it does sound awkward and had I been in charge, I would have worded it differently!
“Sniker” totally sounds like a snake. Maybe a snake that eats Snickers bars?
It’s someone who sneaks in wearing sneakers and a snicker on the face. 🙂
Stuff like that gives me a nervous tic.
snik (verb) : sniker, (noun) someone who sniks snicker: popular chocolate bar containing nuts and caramel, formerly known as marathon
Oooo, I just had to Google “Marathon candy bar.” You learn something new every day!
keep up the great work.
Had you never heard of a Marathon?
I think it was a Euro thing, to make it more recognisable across Europe as Britain entered the European Economy.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but we said then, leave the Marathon alone!
Look what’s happened since, Europe’s in meltdown.
‘If it ain`t broke…’
So how is that pronounced? Long i or short i?
Sneyeker or snik-er? Then of course the question is sneaked or snucked? Oh…. WordPress spell check doesn’t like snucked… but then what would they know eh?
