Chess gets an update

Something had to be done to rekindle excitement in the game. Now it has:

The World Chess Federation today unveiled the new chess piece that they hope will revive flagging interest in the ancient board game....

After much controversy and anticipation, the new piece will be known as 'The Monk'....

"It is very exciting," said [Former Grand Master Uri] Yelanov, "the monk can move three spaces horizontally or diagonally and occupies the starting positions of the middle two pawns... Suddenly chess is [as] exciting as Playstation!"
