Mensagem: 

I thought I have come across: to snob, to be snobbed and to get snobbed

I googled for it  but it did not come up very often.

Anyway I copied and pasted this little composition:

 

The Snobs

When the snobs had something to snob about
They snobbed.
But when the things that the snobs snobbed about
died out,
Then the snobs had nothing to snob about,
So they shut their snobbish snouts.

 

( snout = focinho )
