A dearth of traditional board game humor

I could only find four articles about Chess that I found funny enough to link to.

- What if chess were invented today and reviewed by a modern reviewer?

- A quiz to determine if you are really a wargamer playing Chess.

- If Chess had been invented by Bizzard Entertainment, it would need patches.

- A session report by ScarletJester.

Let it also be known, that there are no really funny articles about Go, Candyland, Bridge, Chutes and Ladders, Scrabble, Monopoly, and so on. Oh, yes, a funny anecdote here and there: some insider Go humor, a humorous article about suffering through a Candyland game with your child. But nothing truly funny.
