: 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.
