This is a chess joke that was sent in by Chess Daddy:

Two elderly men are playing blitz at a sidewalk cafe. The first man has a winning position, but is rather short on time. Just as he’s about to finish off his opponent, a funeral procession comes down the street. The man stands up, removes his hat, and waits till the funeral procession goes past, but of course his clock runs down and he loses the game. His opponent says to him, “That was a very honorable thing for you to do.” The man replied, “Oh, it was the least I could do after 47 years being married to her.”
