Even though one of the definitions of rump is described my two of my past funny words, buttocks and hindquarters, I still like it. Clearly, anything that means butt is under consideration for this blog because, let's admit it, butts in general are just funny. But rump also means a piece of meat and if cooked correctly, a rump can be very delicious.
