BOHUNKUS and also JOSEPHUS, around two brothers v those names. I mean Brasfield invented "Bocephus" by combine "Bohunkus" and "Josephus." So where did "Bohunkus" and "Josephus" come from? Josephus was an important Roman-Jewish historian from the 1st century A.D. (Of course there have actually been other human being with the name, yet the historian is the most famous.) "Bohunkus" is most likely a made-up name invented by whoever created the song. The is probably based upon "bohunk," a pejoretive slang ax probably created from "Bohemian" and "Hungarian" and formerly applied to immigrant of eastern European origin.
