“This morning I coughed up a pawn, a knight and a bishop. I must have a chess infection”

A “chest infection” is not a “chess infection” and has nothing to do with the game of chess, but there are jokes.
     
“It must be cold in Russia, I hope Garry Kasparov doesn’t get a chess infection” was posted on Twitter by ERROR 404 on February 14, 2012. “I was having trouble breathing, found out I’ve got a knight, a bishop and a rook in my lungs. Turns out I’ve got a chess infection” was posted on Twitter by Paul Savage on January 15, 2013. “I had a chess infection the other day. I swallowed a bishop” was posted on Twitter by Wayne Shakespeare on August 23, 2014. “Medical diagnosis is rarely black and white unless it’s a chess infection.#FoxPun” was posted on Twitter by Newsfox on January 13, 2015.
