Cheerleaders Not for Chess

In a form of "reverse outsourcing", Indian cricket bosses have brought in cheerleading teams from around the world to the currently ongoing Indian Premiere League of 20/20 cricket. A squad of girls from the Washington Redskins, for example, are there to shake their booties for the Bangalore Royal Challengers.

But not everyone, it seems, is happy.

Observing the negative reaction, FIDE has now decided to withdraw similar plans to feature scantily clad women from the upcoming World Championships between Anand and Kramnik. Bad luck for chess fans. More details from The Spoof.
