There are lots of lists floating around these days. Some, like the Best Places To Live in the U.S., are a list on which you'd like your city to be included. While others, like THIS new list, are some of which you might wish your city was skipped.

According to Dictionary.com, 'snobby' is an adjective which is defined as:
