Where does the expression BOBBE MA’ASES come from?


Where does the expression BOBBE MA’ASES come from?

The first chumash that was translated into Yiddish, was done by R. Eliyahu Bachur*.
He wrote tens of seforim on dikduk ,mesorah and ta’amim. He also translated and
wrote many seforim and books in Yiddish.
He translated (Yiddish) a story about a prince called Bobbe Dantuna. He called the
book, Bobbe Buch.
The expression Bobbe Ma’ases, started with his Buch. It has nothing to do with a
grandmother  but a prince called Bobbe.

*Most Seforim  who quote his Seforim, call him,  “Habachur”
  He was married , some speculate that he got married late
  and Habachur remained stuck to his name. Others claim Habachur
  means the chosen.
