Sneaked vs. Snuck

In this clip, actress Jennifer Garner tells Conan that snuck is not a word, and Conan proves her wrong. Gotta love his crazy laugh at the end. 

Actually, it's okay to use either sneaked or snuck as the past tense of sneak. Sneaked was there first (and is more formal), but snuck has been popular since the 19th century and now both are recognized as acceptable.

I don't know why, but I'm not overly fond of the word "snuck". It sounds a bit... awkward (if a word can be called that)
