Chess enthusiasts

A group of chess enthusiasts, when checking into a hotel, stand in the lobby loudly discussing recent victories.


After a few minutes the manager bursts out of his office and starts shouting at the group, telling them to get lost.


"Why are you being so unpleasant?" asks one.


"Because," says the manager, "I just can't stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."

That took me a second to get, because I pronounced "foyer" the French way in my head. Apparently I'm super-pretentious.

... ok, so for a non-english speaker would someone explain how to pronounce it in order to get it?:) *blush*

The first syllable foy is pronounced like toy or boy and the second syllable is just like in the word baker or biker or hooker. :-)
The who sentence is a take off of the Christmas song: "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire."

Thanks for reading and commenting.
