78991 84! (Posted on 2019-11-19) Difficulty: 2 of 5
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.
78991 84!

What's the meaning of the puzzle's title?

The matching table:
3245 = a foolish person
24-53 = another opinion
1267890= fermented milk product

Solution Looks like it is ...(spoiler) | Comment 1 of 2
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."
