I believe "Jabberwocky" came first, as it was part of _Through_The_Looking_
Glass_. Second verse:
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The teeth that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

First of all, give us warnings before you're going to spoil the end of
one of the great (mock) epic poems of the English language, okay? Second,
the rest of poem should make it clear enough what a snark is. I'd recommend
that folks who are curious read the poem, although you know the ending by
