I can't stop laughing at abnormal things,
Chessgames dot com till the fat lady sings!?!

  OhioChessFan: Feeble old geezers who long should have retired
Pretty young things who are so gaily attired
Silly named contests twixt the old and the new
These are a few of the things that I view

  OhioChessFan: Girls we call Snowdrops with high Elo ratings
Cranks we call Old Hands their minds dissipating
Meet o'er the table, all whilst Caissa sings
These are a few of my favorite things

  tpstar: When the Snowdrop wins
When the Oldhand falls
When they're playing bad
I simply remember this tournament's name
And can't help but feel: they're mad
