Origin of snatched

First recorded in 1990–95; origin uncertain; possibly from regional American snatching “attractive” (1962); possibly from Black drag culture, where stage performers wear weaves (artificial hairweaves), and if something is amazingly good (snatched), it may snatch one's weave off, knock one's socks off (but the connection is unclear)
