(exclamatory phrase) a playful indication of surprise, misfortune, or insult
popularized by Tracy Morgan of Saturday Night Live
, OH SNAP
is seemingly derivative of oh no you didn't
where an insulted person, for example a guest of Jerry Springer
or often a spunky African American
woman contends the insult being made against him/her. While derivative of "oh no you di-int," OH SNAP
has more of an emphasis on playfulness and can be said by people other than those being insulted.
