Snare is an episode of May I Have a Word where Phil correctly defined the word.


Phil in a snare


In Round 1, Tommy buzzes in first and responds, "A snare is a net-like bag that women in the 1940's wore to keep their hair back." Beau told him he was probably confusing the word snood with snare. Phil then buzzes in and correctly defines snare as "a trap, with a net or a rope."

In the bonus round, Phil correctly chooses picture #2, which depicts Chuck trapped in a snare.
