My last post was a little self serving in that I directed you to articles I have written…. A lot of those articles are really heavy, chess and Buddhism, chess and psychology, chess and self improvement, wow! Time to get a little lighter on the chess theme, and to start that out, a holiday chess joke:
A group of chess enthusiasts had checked into a hotel, and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.
“But why?” they asked, as they moved off.
“Because,” he said, “I can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.”
And this one made me laugh:
For those who have also played the other ancient amazingly strategic game:
The young apprentice went to his master and asked him:
“Which is the best game made by man?”.
The old master though a little bit and said
“It’s chess I guess, isn’t it?”.
“What about Go?” came the next question instantly.
“Aah, Go was already there!”
For the sinister side in all of us:
Love playing chess with people I meet in the park. Really hard to find thirty two of them willing to take part, though.
And for the worker bees that we all are:
Got a job working shifts as a piece in a 24 hour human chess game. I’m on knights this week.
Hope you got at least a chuckle from some of these. This week, The Lighter Side of Chess!
