“Swine! I shall cut you down where you  stand.”

Said the knight, drawing his blade.

“Hold your tongue sir, else come at me.”

Replied the Bishop, brandishing his sceptre in front of him.

The knight could only grimace: the rules of chess dictated he could not attack an adjacent piece.

                                       

This post is in no way meant to detract from the usefulness of knights in a game of chess, although I always wondered why they moved in such an odd fashion… perhaps their steed has one wonky leg, preventing them from taking a straight path.

And yes, I like to think that chess pieces smack talk each other as I move them around the board.

Pip Pip!
