Snyder listed in the AV Club's 26 Worst Educators. The AV Club gives a nice shout out to Snyder at #15.

I was surprised to see Ed Rooney so low on the list. He is my favorite love-to-hate educator.
Perhaps his philosophy is best summed up by a line in "School Hard":
"A lot of educators tell students, 'Think of your principal as your pal.'
I say, 'Think of me as your judge, jury, and executioner.' "

I had forgotten that line. Those Mutant Enemy writers sure can bring the funny.
I think Cordelia best summed up Principal Snyder with the line "How about because you're a tiny, impotent Nazi with a bug up his butt the size of an emu!"
lol, kasadilla!! Oh Prinicpal Snyder, I am so glad you were eaten by a mayor/giant snake demon.
Don't forget, he also played Col. Kurtz in Apolcaypse Now. ;-)
Dean Vernon Wormer, Miss Trunchbull, Principal Ed Rooney and Principal Snyder are the ones that should be at the top, in my opinion.

I love the Breakfast Club, but he barely even rates on my list. Not even close to the others. The ones I mentioned are much superior and dynamic performances. Pure, cruel glee.

Possibly some points for the Penguin in the Blues Brothers.
