Is this supposed to be funny?
I haven't laughed yet...
^^ Nice but its possible right?
Shockinn, to be clear on my previous joke I made, the third friend mispronounced the words bishop and knight. Please don't tell me this isn't still clear to you.
this is your joke :
"2 friends argue about chess. 1 friend was listening but wasn't watching. Friend 1: Hey! Stop with that knight! Friend 2: Stop with that bishop also. Friend 3: What is wrong with putting a bee shop open at night? Friend 1: Dude, me and Friend 2 were playing chess. Friend 3: Oh, sorry I bothered you. Friend 2: So, get the hell outta here!"
I was thinking there must be a punchline coming in the last part of the joke but too bad the red part of the joke is completely unnecessary. Despite my best efforts I couldnt comprehend why the red part is kept in the joke. Bit of a dull ending to an already not-so-funny joke.
Don't get it.
It's a chess joke so the part in red is mandatory.
@shockinn: I agree with you. Because English is not my first language I have looked for a while which pun did I miss? I couldn't see any, hence concluded that the level of the pun was too difficult too me.
Some of you understands, some of you doesn't. I'm not even American, British, South African, nor Indian. But I can still comprehend and use English better than my country's local language.
I comprehend English (or any other subject for that matter) much better than you ever will.
Moral of the story : Never understand thyself.
@shockinn: nah, that is too easy. In this case would the correct hypotheses be that the last three sentences, half of the joke, could have been left out. But that is against all odds, as that is the first thing a writer of a joke does: leaving everything out that is not relevant and ending with the surprise. If it would have been in Dutch I would have known. I am more modest in English.
And so I found this joke about chess when looking for something else and what did I see to my surprise? It was at least one sentence too long.
Really Clever Kid:"Hey, you wanna hear a pun?" Really Hot Girl:"Yeah, sure!" Really Clever Kid: "What do you call a girl living in the Playboy Mansion of Czechoslovakia?" Really Hot Girl: "I.D.K. What?!??!!?" Really Clever Kid: "A checkmate!" Really Hot Girl: "LOL!!!!!! Lets have sex..."
Let's try to add a joke myself (with the moral of the story in mind):
What is the similarity between hearing a good pun and seeing a good pin?
The other guy is smart.
Thanks. That was a funny narrative I found somewhere long back.
Pawn is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.
[Rate my joke 1-10. Also, the joke is associated with math. So try to understand the joke if you know less about math.]
My math teacher, who is also good in chess, told me some equations associated with chess. Math teacher: I am going to tell you an equation associated with chess. Me: Sure thing sir! Math teacher: First equation: Is it true that a bishop x a rook = queen? Me: I can conclude that the equation is true because the queen has both of the bishop and rook's abilities. Math teacher: Second equation: Is it true that a pawn + 6 steps across the board = a queen, a rook, a bishop, or a knight? Me: It is sir, because when the pawn reaches the end of the board, which is also six steps, the pawn can be promoted to a queen, a rook, a bishop, or a knight. Math teacher: Last equation: Is it true that a player loses when the other player does the equation: Losing player's king + checkmate = victory? Me: Sir, it is stated in the rules of chess when you mate a player in chess, you will obviously win. Sir, I also have a question for you. Does the equations you said before is applicable in real life, especially the first and second one? Math teacher: Not sure. Let's just conclude if Queen Elizabeth was also a product of an rook and bishop or a pawn that took 6 steps.
I really love math.
