B O O O !
"Booo" isn't actually on the typo list because the word or sound is used frequently in printed texts to convey spookiness. "Boook*" is on the list for moderate probability. Correcting "booo*" titles and contents notes need to be done with book-in-hand. What is scary is that "boook," "boooks," "booomer," "booogie," and the family names of "Boooge" and "Booone" are readily used in place of the correct spelling in online catalogs!
