"Snips and Snails and Puppy dogs tails"
I've found several possible definitions for a "snip" such as:
- An insignificant person
- Something easily obtained, i.e. a bargain
- A piece of something that has been cut off
Which definition is the one meant in this delightful nursery rhyme? If the definition is more arcane than one of these, I suppose the etymology is fascinating.
