Yeah, I'm looking for a faithful woman, too.
I don't have to like her, she doesn't have to like me, she just can't fuck any other guys.

There is already a bunch of snarky behavior at Burning Man. However, it is not applied uniformly. The truth is that the type of camps or art cars who do the "fuck yer day" thing will often spare you the snark treatment and welcome you into their fold if you are hip, young, and beautiful or have somehow already developed a reputation for being a burner insider such as having interpersonal savvy on eplaya. The snarky people will just ignore you if you look or act less than burner beautiful but appear to be on the ball. The real snark is saved for those who are obviously not cool, but have the gall to want to be. The whole festival is not solely comprised of the snarky types of course. There are many cool camps who are nice to everybody. There are also camps that are nice to everybody except snarky douchebags.

I think he meant the pets at my house. My dogs are highly trained and the male one will lift his leg on your shoe before the first word of snark comes out of your mouth. I don't even want to think about the damage my cats could do to somebody's eyeballs.

I'm tempted to write ePlaya: a Play in III Acts for performance during the Meet & Greet, but fear that one or more of us might be bloodily assassinated before intermission.

And worse, because half of us walk around topless/bottomless/naked on special occasions: we'd see terrible versions of ourselves acting it out on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in 6 months.

And I hate that show!
