Chess Folklore Collection

What is Chess Folklore?

I am working on collecting data on Chess Folklore. One interesting thing about this is that Chess has a long history and lots of stories to be told.  So much has happened and been lost in this history.
So, I created this project to help in this collection from the global Chess Community.

Why do this?
I am doing this to create a collection similar to H. J.R. Murray's "A History of Chess" and also to save stories, jokes and problems for later generations of chess players.

So please if you have any stories, jokes, riddles, anything that deals with chess let me know.
