Why do The Simpsons use the word cross to mean angry?

Starting with Funeral for a Fiend as when the whole Simpson family got super mad at Sideshow Bob for trying to kill Bart in the funeral home on a super dark night which people hate, Chief Wiggum started to say that he's cross with Sideshow Bob as when Sideshow Bob got arrested at the Funeral Home in Funeral for a Fiend. But most Simpsons characters use the word mad to mean angry because that might confuse British people in sense they use the word cross to mean grumpy and annoyed and most Americans and Canadians use mad to mean angry.

    Because cross indeed is a valid synonym for angry in America.

      Mad is the most common, kind, polite, useful, and valid synonym for angry in America. Cross is actually what British people use to mean grumpy or slightly angry so no The Simpsons use mad to mean angry not cross.
