  • It means that they didn't know what to say, so they are just saying bump so the post gets a response of some sort, thus keeping it active.

  • B(bump) U(up) M(my) P(post)

  • It's like doing the "Hustle" - You use your hips to 'bump' the person next to you. :)

    I'm just fooling around.

    It's to keep the post active enough for other people to notice it and answer it.
