Hi,

What does these sentences mean?

1: Their frolic in the surf threatened to become ugly.

In the above sentence I can't understand the meaning of ugly.

2: One of the meanings of morose is showing a brooding ill humor.

In the above sentence I think ill humor means bad temper and I also know the meaning of brooding but can't understand the meaning of phrase?? brooding ill humor as a whole.

Sincerely,
