Marx brothers variants: well, Fredonia is mentioned in one variant of mine, and there's always Tutti Frutti Chess. The games with multiple pieces on one square seem related to the stateroom scene, sort of, a little bit anyway. Aside from that, it's difficult. Remember the scene in Monkey Biz where Harpo impersonates Chevalier with a portable windup phonograph strapped to his back, then goes crazy with the rubber stamps (I've always yearned to do that!). How could one make a chess variant of that??
