    you cant just push those pawns unless your opponent gives you the space, like in the kings indian defense.

    Monkey's Bum is

    1. e4 g6, 2. Bc4 Bg7, 3. Qf3

    So called because when the guy who invented it showed it to a friend the reaction was "If that works I'm a monkey's bum".

    I don't remember the names of the people involved but I do know they were members of my club - Streatham & Brixton - albeit many years ago (70s I think).
