What happened when I Googled the word "scrumping."

A blogger for the Guardian newspaper raised an important question this week: Is it polite to scrump?

We don't have an opinion on whether it's okay to scrump, but we do have an opinion on the word "scrump," and it's that it's hilarious. So we've moved this story to the "Zimmer Frame Files" along with all the other Britishisms we don't understand, but love.
