The Atbash cipher is used to decipher this teaser. The Atbash cipher is a very specific case of a substitution cipher where the letters of the alphabet are reversed. In other words, all A's are replaced with Z's, all B's are replaced with Y's, and so on.

Because reversing the alphabet twice will get you actual alphabet, you can encipher and decipher a message using the exact same algorithm.

Here is the answer key:
A-Z
B-Y
C-X
D-W
E-V
F-U
G-T
H-S
I-R
