What Kind of Elitist I Am

On Zev's recommendation, I took the Elitist Test. My results: apparently I'm a "Book and Language Snob". Here's their description of me:

"You speak eloquently and have seemingly read every book ever published. You are a fountain of endless (sometimes useless) knowledge, and never fail to impress at a party. What people love: You can answer almost any question people ask, and have thus been nicknamed Jeeves. What people hate: You constantly correct their grammar and insult their paperbacks."

Now, in my defense, this is not all strictly speaking correct. For one thing, I do not insult people's paperbacks. For another, I don't remember people being all that impressed at parties.

I too was called a "Book Snob" but that is just not accurate. I criticize art, music and literature equally. I go easy on food cause it is really hard to cook well. Art, music and books you buy, but food you have to make. See the test is just not elitist enough!
