Tournaments

I recently played in a chess tournament at a local hotel (tournaments are often at hotels so that out of town participants can stay, usually at a reduced rate). Between rounds after the second day, my friends and I were out in the lobby discussing the games we'd played, going over the post-mortem, and sharing anecdotes from the day's proceedings. After a while, the manager came out to us and told us we had to leave. When we asked why, noting that we weren't being particularly loud AND that it was the entry of the hotel, he answered, "Because, I can't STAND chess nuts boasting in an open foyer!"

I can't believe I fell for this. Again.

You deserve to be wakened in the wee hours of the morning by naked-bottomed babies.

That could be one of the worst jokes ever in the history of man kind...

But, one of your best. :)

I didn't 'get' your joke, hubby had to explain it to me, especially the chestnut part...sorry....but very funny once the penny dropped.
