Chess jokes !? Yes, why not!

In a world that is flooded with bimbo, Tiger Wood and lawyer jokes, as a change it is good to hear about chess jokes.

Some of the famous one are:

Dog that play chess
In a park people come across a man playing chess against a dog. They are astonished and say:"Wow! What a clever dog!" That man disagree "No, no, he isn't that clever. I'm leading by three games to one!"

Dinner with Kasparov
I was having dinner with Gary Kasparov. Problem was, we had a checkered table and it him two hours to pass the salt!"

A died chess master
A chess master died, after a few days, a friend of his heard a voice; well, it was him!
"What's it like?, where you are now?" he asked excitedly.
"What do you want to hear first, the good news or the bad news?"
"Tell me the good news first"
"Well, its really heaven here. There are tournaments and blitz sessions going on all the time and Morphy, Alekhine, Capablanca, Fischer, Tal, they're all here, you can play them and there is also no FIDE here!"
"Fantastic!" the friend said"and now tell me what is the bad news?"
"You have Black against Capablanca on Saturday"

Anyway, on the personal note. I disagree with above 'Dinner with Kasparov' jokes especially on the part" took him two hours to pass the salt." Hey, he is Kasparov ok. Please show some respect! I bet it must take Kasparov less than a second to pass the salt through the checkered table. If it is dinner with Ulf Andersen or Tigran Petrosian, then maybe it took two hours for them to pass the salt!. :-)

  1. The third joke (about the chessplayer who passed away) actually is a modified version of a well-known golf joke. The punchline at the end is "You're teeing off on Saturday" :)
