  • Think of any time you stubbed your toe, chances are you screamed angry gibberish when you did.
  • This trope is the inspiration for "wharrgarbl," used as a shorthand in some circles to denote nonsensical political ranting, and often associated with an image of a dog drinking from a high pressure hose.
  • When a person is especially angry online, they may try to convey their anger through text by mashing their keyboards to create a string of complete gibberish. For instance: S:DLGIhdsf;glkihdrsglko;"RbgDSR":HDShgs Appropriately enough, it's called "key-smashing."
    • On certain sites (particularly Tumblr), Memetic Mutation has led to key-smashing being used to convey other strong emotions, like excitement or bewilderment.

  • Chilean Spanish is often mocked online for the way their speakers degenerate into Angrish.

  • The Bicol Language from the Philippines has something called as an Angry Speech Register recognized by researchers. It is locally known as tamanggot (lit. "angry words") and it's possible to construct entire sentences using angry variants of normal words. Though most often used in anger, it can also be used for humor or to grab attention. Here are some information on the subject.
