I heard mention of The Rock Snob's Dictionary just the other day on NPR. Judging from the generous helping of excerpts online, it looks to be right up my alley.

Take the non-rock-related How Much of a Snob Are You? quiz

The Word Detective explains the origin of the word "snob" (and has the good taste to have chosen a similar title to my humble little post). The archive of back articles makes for some fascinating reading, boys and girls.

From the A-Snob-For-Every-Occasion Dep't:
TV snobs
Cigar snobs
Game snobs
and even though they might not be snobby, these guys are still SNOBS (The Society of NOrdic Barbershop Singers)
