Attitude demonstrated by those who consider the entertainment and arts they enjoy to be inherently superior to someone else's.

For example, who are we to claim that a Puccini opera is "better" or even more "worthy" than an episode of Mr Ed.

... or that the works of The Smiths are deserving of respect while the recordings of the Spice Girls are not.

There is room in this world for both the deep and the shallow, the subtle and the immediate, the fun and the affecting.

You can enjoy both Se7en and There's Something About Mary. You can enjoy Belle de Jour and Teletubbies too.

So why be a snob?
