Man in the fur hat in 1989 explained ever so succinctly;

'The Humpty Hump, it's your chance to do the Humpty Hump...
Do ya know what I'm do in'?

Doin' the Humpty Hump.'

Hump - a perp, or a skel, as referenced by Lenny Briscoe.

Hump - to carry with great effort, a bundle or a burden.

Hump - Wednesday. See the second definition.

Hump - Something dogs do. Not to be confused with what humans do.

I feel better now. I'm glad we had this talk.
A perp or a skel. News to me.

I, too, am glad we had this talk. Now I don't feel badly about my hump.

We humped him up to the top of the Mount.
Poor Humpty Dumpty, down for the count.
As we scattered him 'round and about,
From off in the distance we heard a faint shout...
Towanda!

We haul ash. That's a useful service in coal country. I don't quite remember what we did with our ashes. I think the ash man picked them up.

My Dad used to put some under the car tires for added traction to get out of the snow...I remember everyone had chains on their tires...(Tires in bondage, another risqué subject)

He would put ashes on the sidewalk and walkway to the house too...My Mom would get pissed at that..had to break out the hand pushed 'sweeper' a lot.
