Chess Jokes

GM Susan Polgar entertains us with the following light humor:

"What's the difference between highway construction workers and tournament chess players? Chess players move once in a while!"

Additional chess jokes are found in her archived posts here. One of the better entries (slightly paraphrased):

A Russian had been a prisoner in a Russian gulag back in 1972. He said all the prisoners were listening to the world championship match every day over a radio. One day when the match was all tied the guards discovered the radio and took it from the prisoners.

After about 2 weeks of not knowing what had happened in the Fischer-Spassky match, a new prisoner arrived. Everyone immediately asked him what happened in the World Chess Championship Match and he said "I lost."
