Sen. Dan Coats is not happy with the National Science Foundation. The Indiana Republican took to the Senate floor Wednesday to denounce the agency’s $331,000 research grant to study whether or not being “hangry” is a real phenomenon. “Most people have not heard about the word hangry,” Coats said. “Hangry, among the younger people, means that you are both hungry and angry… I wasn’t hangry last week when I was talking about ‘hangry.’ But I was angry.”
