I don't know about you, but I constantly get chess earworms stuck in my head. Sometimes these are simply popular chess sayings such as "Patzer see check; patzer give check." or "Every Russian school boy knows." Other earworms include chess phrases in movies like "It's your move, your majesty.", "Don't move until you see it.", or "Check to his majesty." The last two come from the movie, Searching for Bobby Fischer, which has probably contributed more to my personal chess vernacular than any other movie.

For gits and shiggles, I made a soundboard with as many of my favorite audio clips as I could scrounge together. I've been playing around with it a bit, and I think other chess players may also get a kick out of it. Try it out at http://www.soundboard.com/sb/StrategeryCG; hit the popout button to get a flatboard perspective.

I'd really like to add more clips to the board in future, but I could use suggestions. What are some of your favorite catchphrases, sayings, or quips that could be added? If you can post a link to a source with your suggestions, that would be outstanding Laughing
