ENG-Joke- Check Out Mate

A group of chess enthusiasts had checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories.
  • tournament n. 錦標賽、聯賽
After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.
  • disperse v. 驅散、解散
"But why?", they asked, as they moved off.

"Because," he said, "I can't stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."
  • boast v. 自吹自擂、吹噓
  • foyer n. 門廳
