    I thought I'd be a pal and post the game for you:

    Two questions though.  1) what is so "hilarious" about this?  You must have an odd sense of humor.  2)  Where is the "castling"?  Your opponent (over whom you were significantly higher rated) did not castle at all. 

    Just wonderin'

    What's funny is it took you 47 moves to win this game.

    his opponent didn't castle but he had moved into a funny position that made him look like he castled

    Yeah, but how is that "hilarious"?  Perhaps it was one of those "had to have been there" things.

    I didn't realize "funniest" and "strangest" were synonymous.

    Even if they were, the Original Posta billed this as the "Funniest example of castling EVER."  As in call the neighbors, wake the kids (which I did).  What a let down.

    Black King went a long way above the pawn line (f7-h7 pawns) to perform artificial castling from move 9 to 21.

    I see that at move #15 Black's King is out at g5. That is kinda funny, but in a sad way

    This is a hilarious and funny example of how a king can wander across the board into a mating net, and then walk away into the bank rank and artificially castle.

     

    It IS funny (for those with a sense of humor).

    If you want "unusual" castling, I have a move actually named after me which is a kind of "unusual castling" but it is part of an opening system. The move had not been thought of until I played it and that is why it was named after me.

    Nice castling by black. Not very comfortable but certainly an interesting walk.
