    Tremendously angry. Furious. Fuming.

    From the poem Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll (1871)

    Beware the Jubjub Bird

    and Shun

    The Frumious Bandersnatch

    Lewis Caroll

    Carroll reputedly said it was an amalgam of the terms furious and fuming.

    Let’s use it in a sentence: “I was frumious when watched the final episode of Game of Thrones.”

    Frumious. Fuming or Furious. From Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. Definitely a word that should be adopted into everyday English! Click to Tweet

    Frumious Bandersnatch was a psychedelic rock band in the late 1960s. The band was named after a character from the Lewis Carroll poem "Jabberwocky". Based in San Francisco, California, the band was active from 1967 to 1969. Their initial three-song EP produced a minor underground hit[according to whom?] with the song "Hearts to Cry".[citation needed] A recording of their live work, titled A Young Man's Song, was released[when?] by Big Beat (UK).[better source needed]
