'Palestine Post':
"If the promoted pawn on Q8 is converted into any piece, Black is stalemate either immediately or in the second move, thus: 1. cxd8=T L--B4+ 2. TxL,KxL patt 1. cxd8=S L--B3+ 2. PxL patt

Will solvers note that the making of second king is against the rules."
(über letzteres kann man streiten!)
