I had a girlfriend who accused me of being obsessed with chess. Said it was affecting our sex life. So I agreed to take the chess clock off the nightstand. I still mated her in 7 moves.
Not to brag but I played against a machine once and won! Yeah I kicked my lawnmower's ass! Big red never saw that coming.
Why can't British people play Chess? They can't tell the difference between a Queen and a Pawn.
Once i read this from someone in random thread..."chess is only a game" ..."Chess is life, life is only a game.."
This one isn't very funny, but it sure is groan-worthy.
Where is a grandmaster's heart located? Their chesst.
Should I call 911 cause of my constant chess pains?

WHAT gets to move first?
What's the favorite meal of a chessplayer?
Mac 'n' chesse...
Haha, you are funny! The reason that white begins is actually the opposite of what you expect. In earlier days was it not set which color started. There was a discussion about that before every game. The majority of players preferred to play with the black pieces. To make it more attractive to have people play with the white pieces is the rule created that white starts the game.
White moves first because it is a lighter color.
@kleelof: no, that is not how it went in the history of chess.
Come on. You're hurting my feelings. It's a joke:
White does white move first? Because it's a lighter color.
I know it's a moaner, but it's not the worse joke in this thread.
@kleelof: you are right, it is not the worst joke in this thread, but to me it was the most invisible one or may be was it too light and has it blinded me. :-)
