Little Bo Bleep?
Ok, to begin this story, we have to set the flux capacitor to 30 something years in the past. I must have been about 6, old enough to read,
and I was with my older sister reading a book of nursery rhymes. Anyway, I don't remember if it was in the table of contents, or at the top of the page, but the title
caught my eye, so I asked my sister, "Who's Little Bo Beep?" (Yes, that's right, Beep with a "B"). My sister corrected me, saying, "it's Bo Peep.". I re-read
the title, and it said "beep", clear as day. I think it was only misspelled in that one place, but we got a good laugh out of it.
Anyway, Norma, if you're reading this, you're probably amazed that I still remember this. So, what could have possessed my twisted little mind to dredge up this old
memory 30 something years later to post in this blog? Well, I was emailing a friend of mine, and the topic at hand somehow drifted to car horns, and I was saying things like
"beeping the horn" and somehow the word "beep" still brings back that typo many years later.
But, it gets better. I got curious (uh-oh), and did a Google search on "Little Bo Beep".
I was curious as to whether that old typo had made it onto the Internet. I found way more than I bargained for.
Here's the entire rhyme of Little Bo Beep Scroll down to "Little Bo Beep" and click the link.
This one has the name correct.
This one has the name correct, but scroll down to the Color-By-Numbers sheet link. You'll see they used "Beep" instead of "Peep" there.
Here's a story someone else posted in their blog. This one has Bo-Peep in the first paragraph, and then it changes to Bo-Beep in the next.
And last but not least, here's Lollipop Lingerie's Little Bo Beep costume (not for kids!). This makes me wonder,
maybe Bo Beep was actually Bo Peep's slutty cousin??
I wonder how many kids grew up, or are growing up now, thinking that the little girl who lost her sheep was really named Bo Beep?
And Norma, if you read this, write or call me and let me know how hard you laughed! Also, I seem to have misplaced my sheep...
