It Would Be So Nice

I am on an email mailing list for a company that produces high end chess boards and chess sets (the pieces) called the 'House of Staunton'. Each year around this time they have a promotion called the "12 days of Chessmas" where they offer a new special each day for twelve days.

This year they introduced a new line of chess sets called the "Gardena Art Chessmen". These pieces are a wonder to behold. If anyone is wondering what to get me for Christmas one of these chess sets or the Nintendo Wii would be great ;)

Very pretty chess pieces. Have you heard of human chess? Now there is geekiness taken to another level.

Or just google image search it for hilarious results (IMO).
