All put-downs that come from girls are hot and sexy to guys. A good snark is a sign of intelligence and sense of humor, and confidence (but not always). A girl I used to date used to always take shots at me, playfully. It was a crazy turn-on. After a while, it got old because she was relying on it to avoid intimacy and "real" conversation, but until then, jesusijustwantedtosexherallthetime.
I wouldn't say it's a sign of intelligence, per se. Rather, it's of confidence that they'll "challenge" you (females enjoy it as well). I've seen confident females put down males and it's just tackily done. Battling out differing views through intelligent discussion or arguments, even with loads of hostility, can be extremely sexually attractive (to me, anyway). There's respect that they're not just talking BS or even if so, it's artfully disguised!
But battling only if it's not over trivial things, for the most part, otherwise people die quickly within mine eyes (of females too)--
Oh, and to contribue to the Crushes. I've recently developed a same-sex crush on whatever and CC!!
I wanna use Hustler as my deflection.
Hustler is my crush. Good 'ol Jostler.
It sounds backwards -- he's more likely to crush you.

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
