Etymology[edit]

The etymology of this word (A blend of blow and dump) should be noted.

Note[edit]

It also can be a portmanteau word meaning blueberry + pumpkin

Source? The meaning has nothing to do with those foods. Equinox 23:18, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Here's a source to verify: https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=blumpkin+blueberry+pumpkin
Those are pretty much all websites, which don't count for our Criteria for inclusion. It looks to me like a transitory meme that won't last long enough to really become part of the language. The sexual sense is marginally well-known because of all the notoriety from Howard Sterns' talking about it on the radio, so I suspect some mischief-makers want to trick unsuspecting food writers into using a name that's shared with something vulgar and disgusting.

they really want to know that blumpkin can also be a combo (or hybrid) of pumpkin and blueberry

blumpkin

Rfv of the sense:

  1. (slang) Combo (or hybrid) of pumpkin and blueberry.

This seems to be a meme on the (non-Usenet) web intended to fool unsuspecting people into using an outrageously vulgar term in non-sexual contexts. I haven't been able to find this at Google Books or Google Groups, though there's interference from a surname at the former and from the other sense at the latter, so I might have missed one, somewhere.

They are not foolish they want to also know that combo (or hybrid) of pumpkin and blueberry is called blumpkin because of it being totally possible in real life. --CasetteTapeMaster (talk) 15:38, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
