Superior Person's Tuesday

Umbrageous a. Shady or shaded; quick to take offense, irritable.  A nice double meaning. “You’re so umbrageous, Leigh. . .”

Funny — funny how? Funny like a clown? I amuse you?
I make you laugh,? I'm here to %$&@ amuse you?

Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Umbrageous appears in the Third.
