The pet name for the BBC is Beeb, and if the BBC has a bookkeeper, they call him Beebbookkeeper.

And of course, a word with 4 double letters in a row is subbookkeeper (yes, it's not in common usage, but neither is bookkeeper) Nice teaser!

this was a simple one. I am a BOOKKEEPER and, unfortunately, have to type that under my name all the time. Uggh

What's amazing is that my old wornout brain remembered this from many years ago. I actually think I heard this first when Abe Lincoln and I had dinner at McDonalds.

So . . . based on comments nos. 1 & 7, if the BBC bookkeeper had a dogsbody, he would be the subbeebbookkeeper.

That's six now!

(The English language is starting to look more and more like its fellow Germanic languages now!)

stephiesd - if you have used this many times on your brother, then perhaps you are not just making him LOOK stupid.....

A bookkeeper's assistant is a subbookkeeper,
and an especially bad bookkeeper is a boobbookkeeper. An assistant really bad bookkeeper is a subboobbookkeeper.

I too heard this many moons ago - Trickster1992 though this may have appeared in the Encyclopaedia Brown books, that is not its origins, Those books were written in the early 60s this riddle is much older than that. My grandmother told it to me when I was just knee high to a grasshopper.
