You'll find new cryptograms weekly on this page. Look for clever or amusing cryptogram puzzles frequently.
I like to find clever witticisms, old proverbs, quirky jokes or just interesting observations on life, and then turn them into cryptograms.

Are the names we give things really that important? Solve this message and then decide.
Here's one of my favorite cryptofamilies of all time. You'll see that I wrote it several years ago. I think you'll agree after you solve it, that these things still stink!
Example: Sweaty Socks
