Good thing you can see the funny side. For my money your partner chose the wrong time to get creative - what was he planning to do over a positive Stayman response? I've seen players punt 3NT straight off on hands like that, but if he wants to stop why not just pass 1NT?

Also - your opponents had a big double fit in the majors and they got a top for letting you play 2D? That's some serious luck on their part.
