Curmudgeony may be identified as misspelled by Google, but it's got a bit
of usage dating back a hundred years. Wiktionary's entry at [[-y]] says
"This suffix is still very productive and can be added to almost any
word.", and that matches my feeling that this is a perfectly good word, a
perfectly wordy word, even if it wouldn't be used in formal English.
