: Good, by the rumping jumping general!
: i'm stuck on this one, sounds like an exclamation
: could it be a reference to an army general?
: its rumping perhaps a variation of 'romping'?
: something to do with stomping and a collective clamour?
: any help will be appreciated (I know the source and context)
Can't help much but, in a few phrases, such as 'caviar for the general', the 'general' refers to the 'general public', ie caviar is wasted on most people.
