Guy's father presented him a matching table (letters to digits and *) -see at the bottom of this page - and asked him to decode the following message:
681, 091 02 32 *0 9*670.
What's the meaning of the puzzle's title?
The matching table:
3245 = a foolish person
24-53 = another opinion
1267890= fermented milk product
First assume the fermented milk is the British spelling: yoghurt.
That gives us:
guy, try to 3o *t r*ght hurry u4! 3o45 o4-53 yoghurt
Next assume 3 is 'd' and 4 is 'p' and * is 'i'
guy, try to do it right hurry up! dop5 op-5d yoghurt
Looks like 5 must be 'e'
guy, try to do it right hurry up! dope op-ed yoghurt
The required answer is "hurry up!"
And, apparently, the proper response (according to a long running animated Comedy Central program) would be:
"I'm not your guy, buddy."
