A "Perp" occurs in a game of chess when one side can constantly keep checking the other's King with no way to stop it. The game is then a draw should the player who is doing all the checks refuses to stop.
By capturing his opponents Knight, he left his own King wide open to a Perp, thus allowing his opponent to be able to place it in check as many times as he wants without any way to stop it.

In chess, a hung piece is one that your opponent captures
for free because you weren't paying attention to the position on the board.
Example 1: Johnny didn't notice the hung piece because his mind was somewhere else.

Example 2: "..His Rook is hanging! Capture it!
