AirSnark.com came about during a recent 5.5 hour trip from ATL to PDX, where there was free WiFi service. The main traveler here at AirSnark.com, a business traveler named Walter, live-blogged the entire flight, from the snarkiness of the flight crew to his fellow passenger video chatting with her ugly naked husband. During a particularly snarky comment on Facebook, one of Walter’s friends dubbed his live-blogging of the event “Air Snark”. And thus, a blog was born.
The purpose of AirSnark.com is to capture the snarky side of travel and share it with the world. From the good to the bad, to the F’d up story of the week, if it has to do with travel, you will probably find it on AirSnark.com. And if one person is good, more are welcome! Anyone else out there looking for an outlet for their travel snarkiness is welcome. Just contact us at email@example.com
There are going to be some common themes and literary devices used on AirSnark.com. Here are just a few:
- Snark: The true definition of Snark lies somewhere between satire, sarcasm, and humor.
- Granny in her piss-stained wheelchair: This phrase is used to describe the general traveling public, who basically have no clue about traveling, airfares, flights, hotels, rental cars, or anything that is outside of their spoon-fed brains.
- Iron Lung in the overhead compartment: With the plethora of checked-bag fees these days, everyone tries to bring whatever they can onboard the plane instead of paying the blasted fee. As such, it’s not too out of whack to imagine someone trying to stuff an iron lung into an overhead bin, just to safe a couple of bucks.
