Dude, Garry Kasparov is left-handed!

I told this joke to 10 people and not one of them thought it was funny. Is it me, or is it them?

A guy gets on a long-distance flight. He's just getting comfortable when somebody sits down next to him. He looks up and wow, it's Garry Kasparov. Kasparov basks for a moment in the recognition.

Some way into the flight, the meals are cleared away and Garry produces an elegant little wooden travel chess set. He begins to play. After a while Kasparov asks the guy whether he would like to play chess to kill time. The guy replies, 'Hey Garry, You think I don't know who you are? I can't compete with a world champion.'

Kasparov - 'How about if I play left handed ?'

The guy thinks about this for a minute, then agrees. He is demolished in 8 moves, and is inconsolable for the rest of the journey. On landing he meets his friend, who asks him how the flight was. 'It was terrible,' he says. 'Completely humiliating. I played chess with Garry Kasparov and he beat me in spite of him playing left-handed!'

His friend replies - 'Ha! You were swindled! Dude, Garry Kasparov is left-handed!!'

If you didn't enjoy that, you won't enjoy these six songs that I am liking a lot at the moment.

Bird And The Bee - Again And Again.mp3
Charlotte Hatherley - Behave.mp3
CSS - Off The Hook.mp3
Hadouken! - That Boy That Girl.mp3
Maximo Park - Our Velocity.mp3
Metric - Empty.mp3

Hell - I'd be honoured to be beaten by a chess player of lesser ranking than Kasparov...
But yeah, the joke holds up fine for reading.
As do these tracks for Listening...
