1. Nf4#

... if White's queen were a cannon from Chinese chess, that is (when the Nf4 allows it to cover e4 and c4). :D

Solved within a minute.  Probably a record for me when it comes to mating a king in the center of the board!  Normally a weakness of mine.  Also one of the strangest positions I've ever seen!

wow.. I took like 5 mins trying to figure out if Nf4 works. 

Nf4+ Kc4 Ne6+ Kd5 Nc7# 
Nf4+ Ke4 Ne6+ Kd5 Nc7#
Nf4+ Ke4 Ne6+ Ke3 Qf3# 
>.< which is all forcing, but there was just a quicker mate.
