I believe the word is "bifkin".
Also, you made a error common to non-D&D'ers. "Golum" is the sound made by bastardized hobbits who shake it all about after doing the fishy-wishy with their friend. "Golem" is an artificially created human, usually stone or clay, with extremely low armour class. Which knowing that makes that line from the movie even funnier...or ruins it entirely, depending on your stance on D&D.

Spelling error duly noted and corrected.

Though I must point out that the Golem has been around for far longer than D&D.

A more recent pop culture take our muddy friend is The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, by Michael Chabon. That's what I was thinking of when I laughed so hard.

Bifkin! Of course. I knew it had nothing to do with roast beef.

Don't think for a minute ancient kabbalist weren't roling 20 dice and plotting dungeons on metric graph paper!
I think I may try to make a golem out of mashed potato tonight and see I can get him to DM (dungeon master).
