    A chess player boards an international flight. After everyone is seated, he recognizes the passenger next to him. "Hey - aren't you - Gary Kasparov?", he asks. Gary smiles and basks in the recognition a bit. They get to talking about chess stuff. After the in-flight meal, Gary produces a little travel chess set and asks, "How about a game?"

    The chess player replies, "Oh, no, you're far too good for me. You'll blow me off the board!" Kasparov contemplates this a bit, then says "How about if I play left-handed? Would that be fair?" "You're on!", the chess player replies.

    Sure enough, Gary demolishes the chess player in 8 moves. CP is inconsolable. After he lands, he meets his friend in the airport. "How was your flight?" the friend asks. "Oh, it was horrible. I got destroyed in a game of chess by Gary Kasparov, even though he played the game with the left hand!"

    The friend breaks out in laughter and exclaims, "Dude! You got swindled! Kasparov IS left-handed!"
