Coded Message.

Osama Bin Laden decided to send George Bush a letter in his own handwriting to let him know he was still in the game.

Bush opened the letter and it contained a single line of coded message:
370H-SSV-0773H

Bush was baffled, so he e-mailed it Conndoleezza Rice.

Condi and her aides hadn't a clue either,

So they sent it to the FBI.

No one could solve it at the FBI. So it went to the CIA.

Then to Mossad and then the Australian Intelligence Service (ASIO).

Eventually they asked British Intelligence (GCHQ) for help.

Within a minute, GCHQ emailed the White House with this reply:

How does that old adage go, about "spoken in jest"

Thanks one more for brightening my day

Re: Coded Message.

So how many of us ended up twisting our heads upside down - or trying to or even turning a laptop through 180 degrees. Surely I wasnt the only one

Thanks, enjoyed this one
