After 'ruthless' and 'uncouth', the list can do with another one: disgruntled!

It has been immortalized by P.G. Wodehouse: "while not disgruntled, he was not exactly gruntled either."

I am not sure about the exact quote, but I believe it is quite close.

Thanks, Abi. I remember "gruntled" :-) I bet if we took the trouble to scour P.G.W.'s vast output with care, we will find a few more similar gems among his verbal calisthenics.
