It was only in 2007 that he was able to overcome Bernard Madoff's as getting a bit shirty about it when he tried to be "firm" with him.

TOP DEFINITION
shirty
Flustered and pompous, like you would be if someone asked you a question you find incredibly offensive. Happens a lot with teachers and snobby upperclassmen.

Another British bit of fun. Used in "Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging" and "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire". See snogging.
I asked Mrs. Wenger if she was PMSing, and she got all shirty with me.
