Chess Humour..

Its a weak chess connection, but British newspaper the Daily Telegraph has published a list of 50 jokes suggested as "the best".

Humour is quite personal, but I enjoyed them...clean and short.

One chess joke, in at  number 28:

" 28. A group of chess enthusiasts 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."   "

 Yes, not side-splittingly funny, but there you go.

The rest  are here, and most are better than the chess one : enjoy !

Anybody know any other chess-related jokes ? There must be funnier ones than the above ?!

Here's my contribution.....

"A pawn comes home from work one day driving a fancy new car. His wife is astonished and says, "Darling, I don't think we can afford this nice new car on your salary." The pawn replies, "Relax, I'm about to get promoted!"
