how the czechoslovakian got his name

I have been getting many a question about the Czechoslovakian's name. Before you read any further, I must warn you that his name has everything to do with three silly college-age girls and absolutely nothing to do with his ancestry.

He's Irish.

Before we started dating, my two girlfriends and I had every wish to sit around and gossip about him. But he was always around, so we couldn't very well use his name in front of him. There had to be some sort of codename, something ingenious he would never figure out. There were only two ideas tossed around. First, Chewbacca, as in the big, hairy Wookie from the Star Wars movies. I couldn't bring myself to calling him that. No good reason beyond I would laugh too hard every time I tried to use the name.

Then without a moment's hesitation, my two friends simultaneously exulted, "The Czechoslovakian!" And it just fit. For no good reason what so ever. And so he has been known as such ever since.
