  An Englishman: WannaBe: I say, Bugs old chap, wasn't Hare Tonic the title of one of your cartoons? Meep, meep!

  kevin86: <Hare Tonic> was a title of a Bugs Bunny cartoon. I think it was a take off on Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

The game had a large amount of pins-each one a weakness on white's game.

  Chessmensch: Mr. Dillon played a solid game. I wonder if Chester and Miss Kitty helped him. Whoops, I'm showing my age.
Jul-03-07  Jim Bartle: That's right. Younger people would have said "Fester and Miss Kitty."
Jul-03-07  rozumim: But they too would have missed the character's actual name: "Festus."
Jul-03-07  gnixon: I hate playing against the French. It baffles me. Black's pieces always seem to coordinate for central control while white's pieces just bump into each other with no pawn support.
Jul-03-07  Chess Carnival: 13.Qxd5? Greedy?
Jul-04-07  Jim Bartle: Oops. That's right! It was Festus. Fester was a member of the Addams Family?
