  fredthebear: 12.Nxg4 is met by 12...Qh4 with a spearhead on the open h-file, which is the intent of the "Fishin' Pole Attack." I refer to any long range battery utilizing the queen as a "spearhead."

This one qualifies as a howler, but my howler collection of games is limited to fewer moves (although no such move limit need to exist for a howler).

This mating pattern is perhaps an extended version of Scholar's Mate, but purists may well call it simply a Support Mate. Regardless, keep an eye on thy f2/f7 square, especially when an opposing bishop is aiming there.
