Puzzle #29 Answer

This puzzle was a simple twist on an old classic. Going back for ages, a simple way to hide letters and words was to stretch the characters vertically so that they can only be read by angling your eyes below the letters and reading them in a foreshortened state.

This puzzle was the same idea, only stretched horizontally, so that an extreme side-view is necessary to visualize the letters, written vertically top-to-bottom. When this is done properly, you can read: A R M S T R O N G (an homage to the Stretch Armstrong toy of old, if any of you remember that flexible fellow.)
