The definition of a strumpet is lady of the night No one ever knows what a strumpet is - READ PEOPLE! In school my literature teacher, Dr. Wright was this super southern, super gay, super expressive man. Whenever he would read strumpet he would elongate the word and raise his voice. He cracked me up! I went to Catholic school and this is what stuck with me. So I love the word strumpet, but say it Struuuumpet, like Dr. Wright! So Strumpet's Crumpets got it's name!
