A state of being ornery, fussy, or disagreeable. Can be a temporary condition, or a character trait.
Often coupled with the modifier "right", as in "right crooked", for emphasis.
note: the pronunciation favors an equal emphasis of the -crook and the -ed. Dissimilar to "booked".
"Crooked Mr. Flattery never gives out Halloween candies"
"Jane gets right crooked whenever Bill's around"
