A good laugh at the bridge table

I had one of my two live fantasy baseball drafts today, this with the Raleigh NC bridge players (I lived there for 21 years). One of the guys gave me a good laugh about a deal that happened at his table in the Wilmington NC Sectional last weekend.

This was the auction:

West North East South
Pass 1 Dbl Pass
1 2 Pass Pass
3 All Pass

4 makes on the deal, but 3 went down one.

Afterwards, East asked, "What was 3 ?

West said, "New minor forcing."
