From Merriam-Webster

Snarl

intransitive verb

1 : to growl with a snapping or gnashing of the teeth (as of an angry dog) : utter angry or grumbling sounds with a display of teeth

2 : to give vent to anger or irritation in rude surly language : quarrel, scold, complain, or otherwise show anger or disgust in a growling, snappish, or spiteful manner

transitive verb

1 : to utter or express with a snarl or by snarling

2 : to bring into a specified situation or condition by snarling (snarled himself hoarse)

"Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back–in many ways it is a feast fit for a king." – Frederick Buechner
