    Hi,

    I was watching harry potter and the order of pheonix the other day and this word 'yumpy' came up. Vernon dursley says it in the film as:

    " our boy has gone yumpy".

    Now yumpy is no where in the dictionary. I think it is to do with " our boys has gone funny"? I don't know. I never heard this word before. Anyone of you have any idea what it means?

    I have never heard this word used in the US before, when I heard it in Harry Potter I just assumed it was some sort of UK slang.

    It's possible, the entry was made after the release of the film
