Something very epic just happened in the chess community this week. World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen used a fabled meme opening called the 'Bongcloud Attack' against Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura, who returned another Bongcloud, resulting in the two opponents cracking up through the beginning of the game. According to Know Your Meme, 'The Bongcloud Attack is a chess opening named after player Lenny Bongcloud in which the player moves their Pawn at e2 (in front of the King) forward, then moves their king forward a space on their next move, leaving them in a vulnerable position and less likely to win.' In other words, no one in their right mind would use this opening unless they were doing an epic troll. If you're a fan of both chess and memes, this is a legendary moment you won't want to sleep on.

Memers Differentiate Between Chess And Real Life In These Dank Memes

Sometimes comparitive memes make it feel like memers are seriously running out of ideas. Other times, their efforts bring attention to the nuances of life that we might take for granted. For example, the game of chess. In the 21st century, politics and war rarely resemble the strategic game. So while we're using strategies that seem far removed from reality, there was a time when the game-playing was surprisingly true to life. These memes, while not deep, are all about this separation. And really make us appreciate the power of the Queen.
