Garry Kasparov’s love-hate relationship with technology continued on Saturday, as the former World Chess Champion was buzzed by a remote controlled flying penis during a political speech in Moscow. As reported by Gizmodo yesterday, Kasparov seemed bemused by the brief encounter, which ended when an aide swatted the penis to the floor and stomped on it (a little too enthusiastically, if you ask me. Um, Dr. Freud? ...). Most-probably-not-safe-for-work photo after the jump.
Kasparov, the only world champion to lose to a computer in match play (Deep Blue in 1997), retired from chess in 2005 to concentrate on politics. He is now a writer and political activist.
If only the remote control flying penis would use its powers for good, instead of evil.
