Sentence: Fastidiousness wasn't one of Bob's stronger points. And from the time when he was a drover on the Barcoo, and nearly had to eat a barcoo sandwich to survive, his philosophy was that if it was food, it was edible. So when any yumflot hit the floor, Bob quickly upgrubbed it.

Etymology: Blend of YUM & FLOT(sam): By analogy -when tasty food falls "overboard. Yum: yummy, tasty, scrumptious. UPGRUB: grub: "food" & vb: to forage.
