News, but not the serious kind

Honeydew you know the answer?

September 25, 2009

Blog Guy, I was intrigued by your recent item showing a student painted like a watermelon. Can you tell us more about the photo?

The U.S. intelligence community has ordered me to keep this one under wraps. It seems they intercepted it as part of this three-shot photo cypher – some kind of a coded message.

Wow. What if I think I can help?

The most powerful deciphering gizmos are working on breaking the code right now. If you think you’re smarter, send your solution to my blog.

Ooooh! Like a contest! I’m all over it! Is there a prize?

Sure. Send your personal information to deathpanels.gov, so a government team can thank you in person.
