    Well, ok. It's a little funnier if you just say:

    1.c4!

    I guess it's not that funny no matter how you say it. Never mind.

    I originally thought the anus was the most explosive opening, considering all the experience I've had firing into the toilet bowl like a shotgun, but after reading all the chunk blowing stories on the "Dirty Secrets" thread, the mouth may have taken first place.

    Oh, for those of you who are offended by the word "poopy", this post never happened.

    How about the Danish Gambit? Like the danish gambit I had last week, courtesy of Bregmann's Sandwich Shop. I definitely gave up some material for a good position that day.

    Now that I've made a few poop jokes, I feel comfortable talking about chess.

    I really do think the Danish Gambit is one of the most explosive openings. For those who have never played it, the mood is tense, pices fly around and off the board, and it always looks like you're in trouble when (hopefully) it's the other guy who's in a pinch.

    Gambits have to be the most explosive. Other than that, I think 1. e4 can lead to dramatic active play (like the Ruy Lopez). I don't think the English opening (1. c4) leads to half as many wild games. It's considered drawish, isn't it?

    I'll have to go with Fried Liver.

    For black, the Latvian Gambit opens the game to a lot of bloodcurdling lines that almost defy analysis. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f5!? Play this opening and watch the fireworks, fantastic complications are the order of the day, no such thing as a quiet line in the Latvian.
