Before heading north, WeBeDnD left an indelible mark on the South Bay Puzzle Cache scene. His array of puzzles are remarkable in that they cover a vast array of themes, and many of them carry their theme in layer upon layer up to and including the cache container itself. On the other hand, some of his puzzles, especially the POP series, are notable for their evil simplicity. I'm sure many who have solved the POP series were able to solve some of the puzzles immediately, but had to scratch their heads for others. That was the case with me. One puzzle in particular had me stymied for a long time. No matter how many times I looked at it, I just didn't get it. Of course since I was stumped I took advantage of the accompanying hint. Unfortunately, all that did was convince me that the puzzle was trying to do a certain thing. It took me a while to abandon that idea, get back on track, and solve the puzzle. It wasn't until days after I solved the puzzle that I understood what the hint really meant!

Of course, the unwritten rule is that if while solving a puzzle you come up with an idea for another puzzle, you then have to create and publish that puzzle. So here is my take on a WeBeDnD POP puzzle. If you solve it right away, you can throw a little party. But if you are stumped, blame it on WeBeDnD.

Here is the puzzle, good luck:
