REGRADES OUR CLASSY TREAT – May 27th

Every few months or so, while driving to or from the office or airport or whatever, I see a “teaser” billboard that is very good at getting your attention but doesn’t tell you what it’s trying to advertise until days or weeks later. Intriguingly, we keep looking at it every time we drive by until finally, the message, and the product being advertised, is revealed. Sound familiar?

Well, let’s see if the “blog-as-billboard” idea can work. So we obviously have a big announcement next Wednesday May 27th and although I can’t tell you what it is, I thought I’d try a different approach. Since I’m a big word-gamer, I thought I’d anagram our announcement and see who can come up with an answer. Anybody want to try to figure out what we’re announcing? Then solve this anagram:

REGRADES OUR CLASSY TREAT
