Holiday Funny

Ok, I cannot always think on the ugly things in life, sometimes I gotz ta take a break. One thing I like to do is play a game of chess online every once in a while. And someone recently passed on this little funny.

There was a large chess tournament held at a hotel, and after the first few games, some of the players gathered in the lobby to talk quite loudly amongst themselves about their various victories. They would boast about their brilliant strategies, sharp tactics, cunning endgame play, each trying to brag of a more impressive victory than the others.

After a while, the manager of the hotel came over and asked them to disperse. “You’re disturbing the other guests”, he told them. The group of chess players seemed unhappy about this, but they left the lobby to find a more private area to continue their conversation.

Once they were gone, one of the other hotel employees asked the manager, “Why did you ask them to leave the lobby? None of the other guests have complained.”

The manager replied, “I just can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer!”
