Glad to see hes chosen to get involved with chess.com     And finally one of the funniest men on the planet ..Ricky Gervais..this is an extract from his Animals tour talking about the Book of Genesis (thats the bible not the band so not for the ultra sensitive PC-types)   I wonder how much of this humour is just British or how well it travels across the globe ...and with Peter Kay... does it even travel outside of the North West of England?!
