LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you got any idea where Czech Republic actually is? Take a map and repeat some lessons in geography.

Hint: citizens of Czech Republic have WHITE skin.

Well, I can tell you I live in the Czech Republic :-) Have you ever considered that:

(1.) Czechoslovakia had closed borders so it was impossible to travel abroad?

(2.) The names of the whole Bulsara family are nowhere close to Czech names?

(3.) Czech people don't have such a dark skin even if they spent the whole year in a solarium? :-)

Anyway, I had a good laugh :-)

My dear I'm afraid you have been taken for a ride on this. It is well documented where thr family came from in fact his family tree with all relevant info has been shown before. I think you need to take your friends story with a little pinch of salt.

I heard they changed it from Bulsarahsky, so the story may very well be true. The skin colour is because of all the street sweeping, the dirt just stuck.

I assume the topic starter was joking about Freddie's parent. They are not from Czech Republic. Bomi & Jer Bulsara are Parsi & Indian. Although Bomi Bulsara was a civil servant, I assume he and his wife Jer must've resided in Zanzibar before bearing their two children: Freddie & Kashmira.

OK, it's time to reveal the truth. I can't lie anymore!

Bohumil Bulsar and Jaroslava Snedldítetikašiová were born in a small village called Kozomín in the county of "Stredoceský kraj" in a country that just a couple years later (1918) gained its freedom - Czechoslovakia. In 1945, just after World War II, the communists seemed to become more and more popular in Czechoslovakia and the Bulsar family (Bohumil and Jaroslava were already married) wisely decided to go into exile. They have bought a beach hut in the rich country of Zanzibar for this purpose.

And to celebrate the first Christmas (= summer) in their new home, Jaroslava Bulsarová decided to discontinue her birth-control pills - and the rest is history. A son was born nine months later and they called him František. Pity that the clerk at the Register Office didn't know how to spell it and wrote Farokh instead...

I will be really surprised if even after this discovery you won't be able to accept that Bohumil Bulsar = Bomi Bulsara, Jaroslava Bulsarová = Jer Bulsara, František Bulsar = Farokh Bulsara aka Freddie Mercury. You know, they must have shortened their names to avoid attracting unwanted attention on Zanzibar!

oooh of course it all makes sense now, so in truth the song Bo Rap is really about his families struggle to become accepted in Zanzibar.

I thought BoRhap was about how the Bulsara family came into possession of a secret, advanced recipe of the birth control pill in the 1940s and how they struggled with that, both morally and to keep the recipe from leaking out to the general public.

Very funny story, Martin :) Snedldítetikašiová - that must be impossible to pronounce.

I bet we will be answering questions about that story for years to come :)

Actually "Snedldítetikašiová" is not difficult to pronunce in Czech - but the name is weird. It means something like "ate her kid's pudding" and this surname DOES exist although it's a very scarce name :)

Okay, so I was laughing at the wonderful story you came up with, but I lost it here. Brilliant stuff!
