I especially like the last one, by Paul McCarthy. The caption says the pieces were made from "random objects taken from the artists kitchen", which seems plausible, right up until you notice the butt plug that is the top half of the King. Um, I know he's an "artist", but really? He keeps a butt plug in his kitchen? Ewwwwwwwwww.

Looks like buttplugs are an important piece of his works: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_McCarthy devil

Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

Feh.

Why call them chess sets? Why not call them collections of 32 mini-sculptures (or random objects)?
