Caption Contest Thread

Post by Joshua Gibbs » Sun Nov 06, 2016 11:19 pm

Hi I decided to create this thread for entertaining chess pictures for people to add captions too.

Great picture!

I was trying to come up with a funny caption, when I started reading the four lines in your signature:

1) Who am I? I was told i was useless, had a bad attitude and would never get a job, I now get air tickets paid for me

2) I beat a strong FM online - I'm delighted

3) I helped a Refugee support his family

4) I learnt languages

The last two don't really work, but the first two do sort of! :mrgreen:

(The trick is to work out who is speaking the lines, Karpov or whoever the guy on the right is.)

thatd be funny, Karpov boasting of beating an FM... A friend in Russia sent me this, I love it though im unsure on boxing.... The guy on the right is Nikolai Valuev the heavyweight boxer in case anyone is wondering.

You may be bigger and stronger than me but I back myself with the Caro-Kann against anybody

Valuev: See you in round two.
Karpov: I've got three minutes to save my life.

Karpov is saying - to himself "If he doesn't let go of my hand soon, I am going to have a serious accident".

I originally had a rather ruder version.

So in chess they drug test you before & after a tournament & during a game they also follow you to the toilets?

Drug testing in chess is just a charade to satisfy those countries where chess is classified as a sport. No-one expects to find anything and it would be an embarrassment if they did.

Following players to the toilets on the other hand is about reducing the risk of chess engines being consulted during the game in privacy. There have been a number of incidents were this has happened or strongly suspected that it happened.
