For Chess Fans Only

Today at the mall I saw a chess set on sale. Emblazoned across the box in large letters were these helpful instructions:

Checkmate your opponent's King and win!

Well! That clears things up! Good thing they told me how it all works.

When the salesman came over to find out why I was laughing, I realized that if he didn't already find that giddy blurb ridiculous, it would take me several years to explain.
