Most people won't admit it, bu there are a lot of snobs out there.

Take this quick test to see how snobby you are!

Well, Valois, according to the test, I don't appear to have a snobby bone in my body! I scored 20. Cute little test! What did you score?

I scored a 40 so am a bit snobby. However, despite the pair of you only scoring 20 each I will continue to be friends with you both

Well, I scored a big 60 and was personally offended when I had to scroll "down" the age bar! But I guess I have to give the rest of you something to aspire to! Geez! I didn't think I was such a Snob!

I scored a 55......

However, this test is soo messed up, LOL. What does Grey Poupon have anything to do with being a snob?

I haven't used it, but, still.......what's the point there? lol

There was a commercial on this side of the pond for Grey Poupon with an old, snobby guy in a limousine and I think someone pulled up beside him and asked "Excuse me. Do you have any Grey Poupon?".....something like that, anyway. That's probably why the question was there.

I can't believe my twin, lefois, is 40% more snobby than me! Must be because she lives in B.C.....that's where the Greater Toronto Area sends all its snobs!

Excuse ME, blue! But the old fella in the limousine was a man of refinement and taste! And since I have left the confines of the Greater Toronto Area...I have Blossomed! Even if I do live in the north woods with 1000 of my fellow woodsmen! Hold on while I stoke the woodstove..........and polish my pearls! HaHa!

In reply to:

You can be relaxed and accepting of those that don't fit your criteria for being "cool", but you also have the occasional bout of superiority


Occasional bout?? LOL.

24, interesting. Must have been that subtitled movie and the mustard question.
I don't know who Adam Sandler is!

I scored a 30. It said i wasn't too bad, but i have 'occasional bouts of superiority'. I know several people that would score a 200 on that quiz, even though it stops at 100...

Found some of the questions a bit odd but scored 20 which surprised me as in some ways I think I am a bit snobby.

Capital idea, Heather! It's lonely here at the "top"!

Why was my score so high??? Perhaps I am an "honest" snob? Maybe I was a "closet" snob! Maybe those with high scores didn't deign to answer?

I was surprised I scored so low (a 40). Though I did have a high etiquette score...and to tell you the truth, I did answer all the questions honestly or as best as I could.
I'm not so sure about the first question, it all depends...and what's wrong with using Grey Poupon?!

Another 20 here, despite liking subtitled movies! (I do know who Adam Sandler is, and avoid his movies when possible!) I did actually think I was more of a snob than this thinks I am.

25 for me. I don't know who Adam Sandler is, and I don't know what Grey Poupon is either (is it hair dye?)

30 for me. I was disappointed, I thought I was more snobby than that.

I also have no idea what grey poupon is either. Nor do I know Adam Sandler.

Grey Poupon is apparently a superior brand of mustard so I am led to believe.

Thanks for that, Sue - at least I can now improve my snobbery rating ! I can't wait to try it out- "Pass the Grey Poupon, please, old chap"

We're going to have the best party here with the twenty zone! I wonder if it picked up on my Grey Poupon thing...the advert or commercial depicts someone with an extremely posh British accent sticking their hand out of the car for the Grey Poupon mustard...accentuating the Poupon..which makes it sound more like Poop on than anything else...
My hidden snobbery is that I know fully well that no Frenchman would recognize this mustard, it's not a French brand but they'd prefer Maille..one of the older brands or Amora. Anything from Dijon normally does it.
Granted I've seen people bring it to the States in their bags as they miss it. They find American brands insipid!

Anyone going to tell us who Adam Sandler is please?
I could look it up but I'm feeling tired.

Adam Sandlar is an American Comedian who got his start on Saturday Night Live! He isn't that funny! Most pre teens and teens find his humour funny! None of his movies have been that big atthe box office although he did have a hit with the Wedding Singer I think? Anyway that's who he is! Hope that helped! PF

Another 20 here. Who the heck thought up that first question???

Adam Sandler is awful. I don't like subtitles though either. That question would probably have given those with a low score one of zero if the other option was something more widely known and appreciated; like the Three Stooges! No contest there!

I'm guessing that given the number of people who have never heard of Sandler, they are mostly those outside the U.S. Pray that this garbage doesn't reach your shores. While it might have been somewhat amusing on SNL, one-line yuks don't cut it for a two hour movie-at least not when it's the same person.

I think I know who he is now! But I'd probably watch it just for old times sake.
Perhaps I could be a Saturday Night Live snob as I only like certain years, like wine! Once Gilda and John went to that comedy place above, I stopped enjoying it much.
But wait now, my problem is I prefer subtitles, no matter what language as I prefer to hear the real voice no matter what it is.
Maybe I should have had a few more snob points.

Oh my God I scored 80. That can't be right. The questions must be open to interpretation. They called me superficial!! I'm not superficial. I'm not super anything. I've well and truly shocked myself.

I scored 50! Total shock and dismay! But I guess if refusing to have a quickie in a fleabag motel makes me a snob, so be it. There are worse things to prove a person is a snob than having morals and standards.
