    Question What is A.P. B.? (About American police)

    Episode:

    (An American cop was talking by his walkie-talkie, "put out an A.P.B.")

    Cop: Good lord! Put out an A.P. B on a Uosdwis R. Dewoh. Uh, better start with Greek town.

    Man: That's HomerJ. Simpson, Chief. You're reading it upside down.

    Cop: Uh, cancel that A.P.B.

    Question:

    What is A.P. B.? Thanks!

    But hey, while we're on the topic, I used to hear "put out a bolo on him" on cop shows and didn't know what that meant. It's for "Be on the lookout for" Be On the LookOut.

    I think it's pretty much like an APB.

    Hi Barb_D,

    It's interesting. How should I pronounce 'bolo'? B-O-L-O or a word- Boulou?
