Bumply : noun : [buhm-pl-ee]

Definition: Quite literally, another name for an asterisk.

     This one originates from my grandfather.  Whenever he lays down a seven-letter word in Scrabble, he puts an asterisk next to the score.  Except it isn't actually an asterisk.  It's a bumply.  Simple as that.  And so many a bumply exists in the world, though you may now know it.  It's one of those words that can make you smile.  Because it's a bumply.
