Before I get a whole spam­load of emails about this, I am aware that cen­sor­ship pre­dates this Eng­lish nurs­ery rhyme. But you don’t know that it wasn’t the first use of the “beep.” I chal­lenge you to refute this unequivocally!

Either way, I’m just glad I got to use the word “refute” and “unequiv­o­cally” in the same post.
