  • Probably one of a handful of rhymes for humgruffin. Though I suppose one could come up with a few others -

    mumstuffin' - what Jeffrey Dahmer or Hannibal Lecter might do
    dumb ruffin' - what certain bridge players do
    thumbsluffin' - what a snake might do, if it had thumbs
    rum muffin - a delicious baked good, or a spoonerized version of mumruffin
    bum-muffin -- a delicious baked good gone awry, or something a little more scatological
    plum duffin -- another kind of delicious baked good
    gum huffin' -- solvent abuse
    rum puffin -- an odd bird
    plump puffin -- a fat bird
    other possibilities such as bumstuffin', cum-muffin, dumb fluffin', ...... seem to belong more on the cover of an adult DVD than on a respectable site like Wordie
