The Old Ones are the Best!


A hotel in Norwich recently accommodated 25 members of a prestigeous chess team from Belgium.

One evening, after a particularly successful set of matches, the entire team were mingling by the reception desk discussing their various tournament successes and getting louder and louder.

The manager appeared and clapped his hands loudly. "I'm very sorry Gentlemen but I'm going to have to ask you to move along into the sitting room".

"But why?", enquired the club secretary.

"I can't stand Chess nuts boasting by an open foyer", he replied.

Not so much Lovejoy as Frank Muir and Denis Nordern rolled into one, Rog.

Mike: Open Fire!

Z: My Word!
