that is used in school all the time as a teaser. I could figure it out without directions, but hey! you need directions because what if someone didn't know what to do. duh.

Looks like we have tightened up a lot on editing these days! How can a teaser not have a question?

I looked at it. Then I thought it had something to do with the value of each letter. don't ask. After that, I told myself to give it another look and then I suddenly got the answer. See it's not that hard. I crack myself up. Great teaser.
