Do you know a smellfungus?

“Meaning: A fault-finder, a disagreeable curmudgeon who finds fault in everything, who loves misery and sharing it with others…

In Play: Smellfungi are bitterly egotistical people addicted to themselves to the point of constant wretchedness: “That old smellfungus could find fault in the very saints!” By implication, such people become a misery to those who know them, “Farthingsworth is a smellfungus who finds enough misery in the world for himself and all his acquaintances.”

I know a smellfungus and I labor greatly to avoid becoming one myself.
