When a pawn passes, there is no funeral

    But if the passed pawn becomes a bishop, can they revere and condemn him at the same time?

    My profile page is black, so red works best for me.

    So where is the humorous, ironic, or risqué purpose that conveys a message which would be socially awkward, or even offensive, to state directly?  

    Example:When is a passed pawn gay? When it becomes a queen.

    "My profile page is black, so red works best for me"

    • Yes, but it looks crappy in the forum, and conveys agitation, alert or aggression

    "So where is the humorous, ironic, or risqué purpose that conveys a message which would be socially awkward, or even offensive, to state directly?"

    • It was a double entendre because cause it had two connotations, one of them ironic (e.g. passed pawn  vs. passed[-away] pawn, wherein a passed pawn in chess is opposite of passing away as in death, but rather is a promotion in life). You're mistaken. You're busting my chops here for nothing, or at least in the wrong way. 

    "Example: When is a passed pawn gay? When it becomes a queen"

    • That is not necessarily true in modern chess, because in modern societies we see women serving even in the infantry.

    So everyone else's posts are invisible to you?

    Why don't you start your own youtube channel. I'm sure I'll be a regular.
