I know, right? I think it may actually be a legitimate name over there, but yeesh. Wikipedia says it’s common in Madagascar.

For those who don’t know, ‘Sambo’ used to be a common slave name, and also a term for an African/American Indian hybrid. Needless to say it’s a little racially insensitive these days…

There was also a book, shockingly racist by today’s standards, called ‘Little Black Sambo’. Short version has a young boy (South Indian in the original) outwitting a bunch of tigers.

Oddly, there was also a restaurant chain that themed itself around the story - Sambo’s was my favorite place for family dinner back when I was about six.

Perhaps it is only a rough approximation of your location, given how fast you were traveling?  Was the officer who wrote you up named Heisenberg, by any chance?
