I agree completely with Mark | Comment 17 of 57 |

There are two hidden messages in this code.  The more obvious message, which is derived by taking all capital letters, is meant to deceive anyone trying to intercept the message.  The real hidden message is derived by taking the first letter from each noun (personal pronouns are not considered nouns for this code).

In the first clue there are several ways of getting "go" from the sentence, but the correct way is by taking the first letters from the nouns 'gorilla' and 'octopus'.

The nouns in the text are:

Igloo

Leaf
Opening
Van
Elves

Tea
Hats
Eskimo

Cat
Apple
Rats
Dogs
Igloo
Night
Apples
Leaf
Sunset


As you can see, the hidden message is seriously flawed because everybody knows the best football team are the Cleveland Browns.
