I flagged this as "Not an answer" because...well...it is not.
It is just a pale attempt to get some undeserved points. It does not relate to the question. The question had no "lateral-thinking" tag. And the answer was not even funny or even that clever.
Why was this dismissed?
How should snarky answers be handled for questions that don't expect/want a snarky answer?
I'm not talking about comments. Just answers.
I feel like answers like this insult other people's intelligence and just create a lot of useless noise in the answers area. But maybe I'm wrong. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.
Note: I will allow snarky answers to this question as long as they are at least funny.
