Chess and Celebrity

Apparently Chess is now cool. Or so it said in the Grauniad. Sometimes playing chess can be fun (okay I'm weird). Does it really need celebrity endorsement? I'm a celebrity and I'll be mated in 5, get me out of this? Prime time tv with that one.

I prefer Raymond Chandler's "Chess is as elaborate a waste of human intelligence as you can find outside an advertising agency". (I think it's from The Long Goodbye but I'm open to other suggestions).
