Mulligrubs noun; [muhl-i-gruhbz]Means ill temper; colic; grumpiness

Origin Southern United States, 1590-1600 earlier mulligrums apparently from megrims
(1350–1400;  ME migrame  a type of headache) Example  Though I no longer play, as a proud member of the Horde I've had the mulligrubs ever since learning that Blizzard has given the Alliance the Worgen race in the upcoming Cataclysm expansion.  However, after playing the beta this weekend I'm of the opinion that those Alliance-biased bastards have managed to do quite a bit of justice to the Horde's new Goblin race as well.
