There is alternative way of describing it which does involve full leads,
namely as a lead of Original with a 3-4 Single. Then you have no funny
starts and no funny finishes and no more than two types of call per method.

  12345678 Original
S 12435678 Plain Bob
Contains 5248 Plain Bob; 2 Original.

Personally, I still prefer the variable hunt description though.

Presumably your ringer can manage Surprise then. In that case, why not start
with a full course of Surprise to make it atw.
