I was born an only child, much to the dismay of my older brothers and twin sister. Mizz Snarkity Snark in an early radio interview
Snark, the Early Years
As a young child, Mizz Snarkity Snark was known as a quiet and polite child whose first name was Lisabeth-Anne.
Little mention has been made of her mother’s influence on little Lisabeth-Anne’s future profession. Before her unplanned departure for the silver screens of Hollywoodland, Mrs. Gertrude Hildegarde “Bitty” Snark delighted in holding weekly salons and teas in the parlor of their Victorian mansion in the rural climes of West Hampton. There, the gossips of the day gathered and refueled their tanks on champagne and slander.
Mother raised me to be a polite young lady, mindful of the feelings of others and considerate of persons of every position upon the social ladder.
Even as a toddler, she was a perfect angel, according to her doting father, who visited as frequently as once a month. Servants and housekeepers in her parents’ employ mention little of the rapidly changing roster of governesses for the polite and quiet child, with a minor penchant for shredding wardrobes of clothes with her mother’s pinking shears.
