Sicilian Defense, Bus Driver Variation

A Sicilian Bus. Image credit here.

This sort of thing can happen only in Israel. I was on a bus and -- all of a sudden -- the bus takes an unexpected turn, goes to a distant roundabout, and comes back to the main road. The following conversation ensued:

Me: Why did you do that for?
Driver: Do you play chess?
Me (puzzled): Er, yes...
Driver: Do you know the Sicilian?
Me (?!?!): Why, yes...
Driver: I did the same thing!
Me: What do you mean?
Driver: Remember the long line in front of the red light in the intersection? I attacked it from the side and outflanked it!
Me: Er... OK...
