A: "I don't know why John is giving you dating advice—he couldn't get a date if he was the last guy on the planet." B: "Hahaha, snap!"
2. An exclamation of dismay or vexation, especially upon remembering or realizing something unfortunate or undesirable. A: "How's studying going for your exam?" B: "Oh, snap! I forgot that was this week—I'd better hit the books!" A: "Remember that I've got work on Saturday, so I need you home to look after your little sister." B: "Snap, that's this Saturday? But I was going to go to Jeff's house for a party!"
