We've all heard the joke about the man playing chess with his dog.

In this maddening chess set, all the pieces on each side look alike, except they have different fragrances. (E.g. bishop = watermelon).

Novices will have to use memory or else spend time smelling each piece. However, chess masters will be able to take in the position of an entire board with just a few broad sniffs.

       Eh, I'll just *tell* my dog he's in check. As long as he gets to eat a pawn when it's all said and done, he won't say a word.

       I have not heard a joke about a man playing chess with his dog.   

       A man comes over to visit a friend at his house, and he's amazed to find him playing chess with his dog.
"That's an amazing dog you've got there!" exclaims the man.
"Aaah, he's not so great," the friend says. "I beat him two games out of three."

"Aaah, I'm not so great," the dog says. "He's beat me two games out of three."

       ...and if he doesn't win, I beat him.

"That's an amazing chess set you've got there!" exclaims the man.
"Aaah, It's not so great," the dog says. "I've eaten two queens out of three."

"That's an amazing dog you've got there!" exclaims the man.
"He’s not so great," replies the friend. "All we ever do is play chess. Just once I wish he’d take me dancing."

       A man comes over to visit a friend at his house, and he's amazed to find him playing chess with his dog.
Before he can comment, however, there is a knock at the door.
"Who's there?" asks the friend.
"Delayed interrupting cow," came the reply.
"Delayed interrupting cow who?" asks the friend, slightly puzzled. But there was no response, so he went back to his game.
"That's an amazing dog you've got there!" exclaims the man.
"He’s not so..."
"MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!"

       Once the pieces pass their smell-by-date, would you have to declare the game a stalemate? (waa waaa waaa waaaaaaaa)

"That's amazing. Your dog can play chess!" exclaims the man.
"That's nothing," replies the friend. "You should see my cat with a rubik's cube."
