    Supposedly a joke told by Capablanca:

    "I was playing in a tournament in Germany one year when a man approached me. Thinking he just wanted an autograph, I reached for my pen, when the man made a startling announcement. 'I've solved chess!' I sensibly started to back away, in case the man was dangerous as well as insane, but the man continued: 'I'll bet you 50 marks that if you come back to my hotel room I can prove it to you.' Well, 50 marks was 50 marks, so I humored the fellow and accompanied him to his room."

    "Back at the room, we sat down at his chess board. 'I've worked it all out, white mates in 12 no matter what.' I played black with perhaps a bit incautiously, but I found to my horror that white's pieces coordinated very strangely, and that I was going to be mated on the 12th move!"

    "I tried again, and I played a completely different opening that couldn't possibly result in such a position, but after a series of very queer-looking moves, once again I found my king surrounded, with mate to fall on the 12th move. I asked the man to wait while I ran downstairs and fetched Emmanuel Lasker, who was world champion before me. He was extremely skeptical, but agreed to at least come and play. Along the way we snagged Alekhine, who was then world champion, and the three of us ran back up to the room."

    "Lasker took no chances, but played as cautiously as could be, yet after a bizarre, pointless-looking series of maneuvers, found himself hemmed in a mating net from which there was no escape. Alekhine tried his hand, too, but all to no avail."

    "It was awful! Here we were, the finest players in the world, men who had devoted our very lives to the game, and it was all over! The tournaments, the matches, everything - chess had been solved, white wins."

    About this time Capa's friends would break in, saying "Wait a minute, I never heard anything about all this! What happened?"

    "Why, we killed him, of course."

    There was once a chessplayer who would, at a moment's notice, play up to eight simultaneous games, and he would invariably lose all of them.

    To bring meaning to this pointless resurrection, there was another guy who castled long- using the rook on the board next to him (he had lost his own queenside rook).

    A man walks into a restaurant and orders a glass of water. The waiter comes out, holding a gun, and points it at the man's head. The man gets up and says thank you, and leaves. Why? You may ask yes or no questions to help you get the answer.
