I have found something interesting in Urban dictionary:

When you fart in the bath-tub and bite the bubble.

My kid decided to frump in the tub last night.

I also found that allegedly "frumps" are very common in the Seattle area. But since it refers here to a woman who is generally not concerned with her appearance and doesn't make any attempt to look womanly or sexy, I have lost any interest in this meaning. I know that once Nirvana originated the "grunge" style, yet they are long ago gone.
