    Was the joke intentional do you think?

    Probably unintentional

    Here's one I just finished - It's just for a laugh.

    Worth a grin for sure. Nice mating shape too!

    Impressed with your patience, working for the third horse. Pestilence, War Famine and Death were the four apocalyptic fellows, what shall we call your 3?

    Yeah, my originall plan was just to promote to five horses and play around until mate - just because it pisses me off when people insist on playing on until mate, and I like to screw with there minds

    Then I carelessly lost a pawn, and remembered that a win was possible with three knights, though it is a little more difficult, so I went for three. The mating pattern is actually not really that difficult though. I doubt I would have had much trouble finding it in an OTB game.
