Word of the Day 11/04/18 Patzer

Patzer (noun)
patzer [paht-ser, pat-]


noun
1. a casual, amateurish chess player.


Origin: 1955–60; probably < German Patzer bungler, equivalent to patz(en ) to bungle (compare Austrian dialect Patzen stain, blot, patzen to make a stain) + -er -er

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
