yes very funny , but bashing the bush is a no no ,or blaming the burning bush or is it beating around the bush, or is it 2 birds in the bush equal one going to be birdnest -- yours bluebabygirl. p.s. our military never beats around the bush- they just run over it with all those tanks!!! TANKS, TANKS , TANKS, TANKS SEND THE TANKS LATER YOU CAN GIVE ME THANKS!!! All in fun - for i support our president 100 percent and believe he has done exactly that which was necessary.

There was a very nice bush cartoon At the chessbase site there was a cartoon that was chess related. It appeared in chessbase.com some time ago, during the beginning of the Irak war.

It had Bush playing two simultaneous chess games, one vs. Irak, where he was smashing the oposition, the other vs. Economy, where he was being completely smashed :-)

Here is some reader feedback I picked up the funniest ones :-)

"I hear a teacher in Scotland was arrested at Glasgow Airport on suspicion of being a terrorist," wrote John Henderson from Seattle. "In his possession were compasses, protractors, straight edges, and triangulation devices. He is suspected of being a member of Al Gebra, bearing weapons of maths instruction."

Holger Lieske: This is a MoC the way I love it (really). Great. Suggestion: 1. Black pieces will in future be called "afro-american pieces". 2. Berlin Defense (correct... Germans were not in the coalition) gets replaced by JFK-Defense (Ich bin ein Berliner).

Wallace H: Brilliant. I laughed aloud several times. I wish more chess writers were this "human" from time to time. Really funny stuff, keep it up. I've got to go work on my Heroic Freedom Defense and brush up in on my Liberty Stars Attack (formally the confusing and obviously foreign sounding "Giouco Piano" or worse Italian Game).

J Adams: Way off. You must be some kind of fascist anti-American loser. Only your irrelevance saves you from the persecution you should suffer. I had heard that Mig on Chess was funny and gave insight into the world's top players. This is proof that you are just some left-over cold-war clueless, leftist lover of the communist system and everything not American. Your father should have beaten you more (not just in the head).

Francois Dongier: I just hope it won't take you to Guantanamo.

And remember that the English and the Scottish openings will retain the name, as Great Britain helped in the war. The same for The Spanish or Ruy Lopez, as the spanish president gave support.

I'd like to register a defense If I want to register a defense.
Where do I register it?
Is it like with trademarks [tm]
Ans how much does it cost?
mattafort 12 ( +1 | -1 )
Oh, and you have to pay me. Oh, and you have to pay me a leasing-fee
every time you use my defense.
Because I have the patent.

Brucehum Darn! My country wasnt supporting the war so does that mean I have to forget Finnish Sauna Attack (1.Nf3 2.g3 3.Bg2)?

Uhhh And what about the Berlin defense...
I really hope that Ruy Lopez has a lot of influence in the USA :-)
