“I have a Polish friend who is a sound engineer and I have a Czech one too”

Sound engineers often test by saying, “Check one-two.” A joke has been printed on several images:

“I have a Polish friend who is a roadie for a band. I have a Czech one too. A Czech one too. Czech one too.”

The joke was posted on Twitter by Ollie on June 27, 2016.

Sound engineers say “check 1, 2” into a mic to see how it sounds. Czech replaces check but is also his friend’s nationality hence the play on words
