LH, there is also "rumpus room," where the word is used as an adjective -- and for the life of me I can't think to the correct term for this usage. It's not a gerund or an adverbial. Ah well, I don't use no grammar anyhow these days because nobody else does either.
Mentally playing with words, I've come up with "grampus bumpass rumpus" and I'm not going to think about that any more because the mental picture is too disturbing.
