1st hat: I just brute-forced this in Excel.  There were three possible solutions for the alphametic but only one translated into an English remark: "FUZZY & CRAZY, BUT TRUE !"

2nd hat: It was easy to deduce what digits E, R, M, K and Y represent.  From then it was pretty easy to substitute into the expression and figure out what the rest of the digits must be.  I end up with "REALLY VERY xOOL !" so I assume x = C.
