Funny: Go

  • The Japanese for 2 dan is Ni-Dan. The British Go Association (in the late 80's-early 90's at least) made a punning joke on this, where 2-dan players who lost all six games at a national tournament were entitled to refer to themselves as "weak-knee-dans".
  • A tongue-in-cheek name for a play, the Nuclear Tesuji, is described as: "Throwing the Go board against the wall, denting the wall and the board, prior to uppercutting ones opponent." A spectacular display of poor sportsmanship that is often joked about in Go circles.
