    This was a neat little position I thought. Black seems to have this in the box, but I wouldn't have been able to win it.

    Black to move and mate in 5

    What, the check?

    Yup...

    Well, I saw the check, but wasn't able to see the checkmate following. My guess was to promote to queen, but that wins for white.
