Mensagem: 

Rick, a ´´bobby prize´´ is one given to the winner of a ´´bobbing for apples´´ contest.

LOL  (rsrsrs)  Just joking.  Surely it was a typographical error. 

 

Do they ever ``bob for apples´´ in Brazil?  This is a funny event at parties for kids.  Apples are placed in a tub full of water.  The kids have to remove an apple from the tub using their teeth.  No hands!  It is funny to do, and funnier to watch.

 

Your definition of a ``booby prize´´ was right on the mark.
