    A quick side question if I may. Is Momar Szyslak a Czech name?

    Szyslak and Szyślak are Polish surnames.

    In the Czech version of the Simpsons, Moe Szyslak is known as Vočko. There is also a pub "U Vočka" (At Moe Szyslak) in Prague.

    Vočko is a colloquial diminutive of oko (= eye), it is also a card game.
