When a colleague and I sent almost identical emails simultaneously, our instant reaction was to shout “SNAP!”

looking in various dictionaries both paper and online, this use of the word doesn’t seem to be defined. There are dozens of uses for this heavily overloaded word, but not this one so here goes…

Snap interj. — An exclamation made when two independent events are perceived to be the same. Derived from the children’s matching-card game where the word us used to claim a win.
