|May-11-14|| ||TheFocus: I was born in 1962.|
|May-11-14|| ||TheFocus: I seriously should have put that post in quotation marks, or in < >.|
|May-11-14|| ||TheFocus: The only time I met Bobby was when he, Karpov and I posed together for a picture.|
I carry around a copy in my wallet. Both of them autographed it.
I wonder how much I could sell it for on eBay?
|May-11-14|| ||TheFocus: Probably a couple of hundred bucks, seeing as how many pictures of the of them are available.|
|May-11-14|| ||thegoodanarchist: I don't like the pun. I would prefer "Whislering past the graveyard"|
|May-11-14|| ||tivrfoa: <TheFocus: The only time I met Bobby was when he, Karpov and I posed together for a picture.

|May-11-14|| ||offramp: <TheFocus: ...All I recall is that we were in a big luxury car...>|
Probably a Ford Focus.
|May-11-14|| ||perfidious: More probably not--I have driven a Focus as a rental and it is not something I recommend to anyone over six feet tall. If that is a luxury car, hate to see the economy version!|
|May-11-14|| ||rahulthemoron: The position, as far as given, looks puzzlingly neutral and damn me if i cannot understand at all why this is the "Game of the Day" on a weekend|
|May-11-14|| ||TheTamale: The pun would certainly be more appropriate had Fischer actually given birth to Whisler. Which I'm sure is NOT the case; otherwise Wikipedia would surely mention it.|
|May-11-14|| ||FSR: <perfidious> I once drove a Ford Focus as a rental car. I'm 5' 11.5", and thought it sucked massively. What a POS. (Sorry, <TheFocus>.)|
|May-11-14|| ||TheFocus: <FSR> No offense taken.|
I rode in one and thought the same thing.
|May-11-14|| ||FSR: This is one of the saddest efforts ever at a GOTD pun. And an incomplete game even. Can Yates vs J O'Hanlon, 1921 be far behind?|
|May-11-14|| ||TheFocus: Yes. This pun sucks. It's like someone didn't even try very hard.|
|May-11-14|| ||TheFocus: Or the Admins just looked at it said, "Yeah... whatever."|
|May-11-14|| ||FSR: <TheFocus: <FSR> No offense taken.|

Is your avatar a depiction of your mental state during that ride?
|May-11-14|| ||offramp: <TheTamale: The pun would certainly be more appropriate had Fischer actually given birth to Whisler...>|
However, in that way a most unsqueasonably prescient GOTD given Conchita Wurst's conquest of the Eurovision Song Contest late on the evening of Saturday, 10th May 2014 in Copenhagen.
Conchita Wurst (not his or her real name) is an Austrian drag act with a beard.
I am afraid I could not tell in which direction the LGBT was intended - much like a Ford Focus. Was she M-F or F-M?
He or she sang a good song, though.
Very James-Bond-like. Sort of Bassey-with-a-beard.
|May-11-14|| ||offramp: <TheFocus: Bobby and I met in the 1955 U.S. Junior where we played to a draw. ...>|
You coud of lunk to your othe gaem:
W Whisler vs Fischer, 1955
|May-11-14|| ||Domdaniel: There is no work of art named 'Whistler's Mother'. James McNeill Whistler did paint a portrait of his mother, seated - but he called it 'Arrangement in Grey and Black no.1".|
|May-12-14|| ||Petrosianic: The pun doesn't claim that that's the actual name of the portrait. But, as you say, it is a painting of Whistler's mother, and is often referred to by its subject, rather than by its actual name. So, the pun is legit.|
|May-12-14|| ||diceman: <Domdaniel:
'Arrangement in Grey and Black no.1>
How many "mothers" did he have?
<piltdown man: So where's the rest of the game?>
Bobby won, so it looks like,
"Whisler" palyed a "howler."
|May-12-14|| ||kevin86: Yesterday, somebody wished me a happy mother's day- I replied" I'm not a mudder, I don't run in the rain"|
|May-12-14|| ||Petrosianic: I once saw a mudder eat her fodder.|
|May-12-14|| ||Domdaniel: Here's mud in your eye...|
|May-12-14|| ||TheFocus: "Hello, Muddah. Hello, Faddah."|
