September 10th, 2009 - Gotham City- A celebrity chess tournament was held over the Labor Day weekend at the Gotham City Chess Club. Proceeds going to the victims of last years tragic Gotham City Apartments attack carried out by the Legion of Doom. The attack left 1100 people homeless. The tournament brought out current celebrities as well as those from the past. Some of today's current celebrities included Mr. Garrison from South Park, Spongebob Squarepants, Captain Knuckles, Brian Griffin, Ned Flanders, and Hank Hill.
One of the more surprising entries into the tournament was Dumb Donald from the Fat Albert Show. He has been out of the public eye for some time, but the charitable cause of the tournament was close to his heart. His mother was one of the people left homeless in the attacks. Donald's tournament run started off fairly easy for him. He defeated Aquaman, Apache Chief, Droopy, and Huckleberry Hound in very fast time. He then came upon a tournament favorite, Velma Dinkley. Their match lasted nearly two hours before Donald was finally able to put Velma's queen in checkmate.
The final match pitted Donald against the tournament favorite, Papa Smurf. During the middlegame, Donald played a brilliant zwischenzug which put Papa Smurf at a huge disadvantage that he was not able to overcome. Dumb Donald won the match in just over 40 minutes. Donald dedicated the match to his mother and the other victims of the attack. Donald also thanked Mush Mouth for teaching how to play chess while they were on the set of the Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids show.
