Definition
to be overly unhappy and unsociable — often due to disappointment or a sense of not getting what was deserved
  • I believe the silly fellows must have thought they would break their shins over treasure as soon as they were landed, for they all came out of their sulks in a moment and gave a cheer that started the echo in a faraway hill and sent the birds once more flying and squalling round the anchorage.
