Mirror, mirror on the wall
"South is in receipt of Reflected UI." Well named. North-South may be in deep sh.. with the Director, and when it hits the fan, stand clear of the reflections!
Unusual Unusual/Unusual Sequence
This poll has more hanging chads than the 2000 Florida ballot. Playing 3H as nondescript is the Lost Lamb system. For me it shows 6+ hearts (rarely a strong five) so I'll take my chances with RKC.
Your rarest distribution

The beauty of a 3-3 fit
Three-three fits are for beginners. Too many trumps! Years ago in Santa's Workshop: http://rpbridge.net/7f05.htm
'Count' discards and disclosure
"Discards show count" is adequate. To add that you would usually retain your better suit(s) is like wearing an "I am not a moron" sticker on your shirt pocket.
An important one
Low diamond to the queen looks obvious, a lock if diamonds are 3-3 or West has A-x. Clubs can wait.
A Beer Problem
Surely the right play after drawing trumps is C AQ (pitch spade and heart) since if clubs 4-3 you claim. Else HA, heart ruff, and if both follow you claim. Else a club ruff delivers a ruffout squeeze if heart holder has the SK (with no guess involved).
Impolite to compliment partner?
The goal is to compliment partner but to complement his idiocies with brilliant technique.
Mighty Hand
That's a powerhouse compared to this 2010 fantasy puzzle: Holding 432 432 432 5432, what is the most tricks this hand could win in any contract? The answer may surprise you. http://rpbridge.net/8f11.htm
Morton’s Fork Elimination
After cashing two clubs, doesn't a diamond shift cover all chances of beating 4H?
