The Oxford English Dictionary defines a snub as "a remark or action intended to repress or rebuke," particularly in a "sharp and cutting manner." Included in this collection are some choice put-downs by such celebrated masters of the snub as William Shakespeare, Woodrow Wilson, Groucho Marx, and Mark Twain.
Such snubs as: When an arrogant young man told Dorothy Parker he couldn't bear fools, she replied, "How odd. Your mother could, apparently." To an aspiring author who had hoped for praise, Dr. Johnson wrote, "Your manuscript is both good and original; but the part that is good is not original, and the part that is original is not good."
