Limerick Ode To “Snark-Free Day”

Here’s a holiday I could definitely live without:

PRConsultants Group created “Snark-Free Day” to encourage people to take the high-road and go out of their way to be polite, kind and considerate on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Limerick Ode To “Snark-Free Day”
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Today is a holiday. Hark!
Snark-FREE Day — no walk in the park.
‘Twas conjured by guys
Who think snark isn’t wise.
Are those fellows on crack? Call a narc!

My day would be dark without snark—
Those remarks that have bite, if not bark.
No I won’t be denied
The clever and snide.
This holiday misses the mark.

    how else would you stay sane
    for the things you cant say
    to those who ____ all build up
    til you pop

    Indeed the days would be slow and dark
    without the fun of biting snark
    but you should be prepared
    and maybe beware
    the response to a snark might be bark

    That PR group needs to be enlightened on that “high Road” for once a year…1…one…uno…day for politeness? Are we at a point we need to put one day aside for a truce? For servility?
    Oh, Oh, I’m not being very “Snarky-free”
    ~smiling with concern :-) ~ I enjoyed your piece.

    The sun will surely go dark
    Ere the blogosphere goes without snark
    As soon as we rise
    Here’s mud in your eyes
    Tell those admen themselves to go fark
