Subject: Christmas Indulgence
From: Saul Feldman <email@example.com>
In a large convention center in New York, over 1000 professional chess
players were gathered in the central hallway for the International World
Chess Tournament. At exactly 8:00 am the starter's gun went off, and all
you could hear were the sounds of clocks being hit and chess pieces
hammering on the boards.
All of a sudden, an angry player stood up and yelled "I CAN PLAY BETTER
CHESS THAN ANYONE IN THIS ROOM!" At first there was a stunned silence; then
the whole room erupted as everyone bellowed how great they were at the game.
Well, you just *know* it had to be Christmas. At what other time of
the year would you have chess nuts boasting in an open foyer?
