Back in the days when records were records, the world's leading expert on European Wasps went into a record store.

"Do you have 'Acoustic Sounds of European Wasps, Volume 2' in stock yet?" he asked the clerk.
"I think so, sir," the clerk said. "Let me check."

So he checked, and he said, "Yes, sir. Here it is. Would you like to hear some before you buy it?"

"I certainly would!" the Wasp expert said. "I've been waiting a long time for this recording."

The clerk put the record on the turntable. The Wasp expert put on headphones. He listened for a little bit. He frowned. He scowled. He took off the headphones.

"I have never heard Wasps make such noises in all my life!" he said angrily.

"I'm terribly sorry, sir. Let me try the next track," the clerk said.

So he did. The Wasp expert listened again. He scowled again.

"These are not sounds European Wasps make!" he shouted. "I must speak to the manager!"

The clerk got him. "What seems to be the trouble, sir?" the manager asked.

"European Wasps do not make these noises! What is wrong with the record?" the expert said.

And the manager bent down to check the record on the turntable. When he looked up, he said, "I'm very sorry, sir. The clerk made a mistake. He was playing you the Bee side."
