Saddam calling

[Thanks Theepan]

Saddam decided to send George W. Bush a letter to let him know he is still in the game. Bush opened the letter and it appeared to contain a coded message "370HSSV 0773H".

George W. couldn't figure it out so he shared it with Colin Powell. Powell and his aides had no clue either, so they sent it to the CIA. No one could decode it so it went to the NSA-- and then to MIT, NASA, the Secret Service... the list got longer and longer.

Eventually they asked Mossad in Israel for help. Cpt. Moishe Pippick took one look at it and replied: "Tell the President he is looking at the message upside down..."

I would have used '4' instead of 'H' (remember those old Casio caculators) but dunno what could have been used for the 'V'.
