A dumpling ground

We, therefore, consult regularly with AAU to ensure that we do not turn the university into a dumpling ground of irrelevant books

That is already a serious danger in the area of the Kola penin sula, which the Russians have long been using as a dumpling ground

Brian, Gloucestershire is ALREADY a dumpling ground for other people’s rubbish. Look at the hazardous waste faciltiy at Bishop’s Cleeve.

No sense to this, that I can see.

On the plain in Spain where it mainly rains.

Re: A dumpling ground

Might be a case of fingers trippling over the l when hitting the pl. See for instance Emplire State Building. Dumplings should not be maligned like that. The only time I’ve eaten dumplings, they were fist-sized dough balls on a stew made by a rosy-cheeked dumplingesque woman. Eat, you’re so skinny.
