Croatian Chess Player Strip Searched

This is not a joke. They take their chess seriously in Croatia! An amateur beat a chess master in Croatia and was strip searched because they believed he was carrying a hidden electronic device that gave him the winning moves. The moral of this story is that if you play chess in Croatia make sure you're wearing clean underwear!

    Word on the street is that he had chip implanted in his gluteus maximus but it over-heated and caught his pants on fire.  He now only plays standing up.

    I believe that professional chess is doomed. The day is coming when it will be possible to implant human brains with computers and then cheating at chess will be a simple matter.
