Might I suggest ‘drop?’

When I was a humor editor at Hallmark Cards back in the day, part of my job was to read greeting card copy and look for any possible innuendo.

Was it dirty or gross? Could people take it wrong? Especially it if was unintentional, it was my job to suss it out.

“Dump” to them only has the one meaning…to ‘drop heavily or suddenly,’ which appears to be their intent.

But every time the infomercial airs — and it airs a lot —

I’m afraid a very different and unappetizing meaning for ‘dump’ comes to mind.

Sorry, Cathy.  I’m ordering takeout.
