: So where does stroppy come from? And no, I don't mean me in the morning. I've know people to use words such as (and I must apologies for the following cos I've got no idea how to spell them)... obstroperous, obstropolous, abstrepperous - yeah I know, this will be a hideous misrepresentation.

: Anyway, can someone firstly tell me if any of the above words are really words and how to spell them, and whether 'stroppy' comes from any of those words?
