In the phonetic alphabet, Charlie represents the letter C. During the Viet Nam war the Viet Cong (VC) were known in military slang as "Charlie", short for "Victor Charlie"
A few famous Charlies:
But my favorite is Charlie's Angels, starring Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, and Cameron Diaz.
Plus it has Bill Murray as Bosley. I mean, how can you go wrong there?
