Snark Attack
CNBC.com | May 27, 2011 | 08:35 AM EDT

One of my less-flattering attributes is that I feel compelled to mock just about everything.

Rare is the topic I don't subject to sarcasm. I don't mock my faith, my gratitude for having safe, healthy children (though I sometimes lovingly mock my children), or stage 4 cancer (unless the person with stage 4 cancer encourages me to do so).

Everything else is fair game.

The internet was made for snark. Here we can crack wise on a grand scale. And if we're good at it, we can even make money!

One of the snarkier upstarts I enjoy following online is the Hollywood Diaries written by "Temp X" . This blogger purports to be a temp—"the lowest life form in Hollywood"—who bounces around the studios, with hilarious, biting tales to tell. But Temp X occasionally casts his (her?) caustic eye beyond Hollywood.

Take this blogpost suggesting Sarah Palin's new bus is a Jack-In-The-Box ripoff! That cackling you hear is my reaction after discovering this delicious slice of snipe. Please don't take my tittering as a sign that I agree with Temp X's views on Palin. I just love the fact that her bus looks like Mr. Box's truck! Fabulous!
