In the 24-hour period of April Fool’s Day, 2003, there were 1,762 unique vistors who eyed the opening page, 407 people who tackled the close-up clues, 144 people who viewed all seven print pages, and 19 people who sent in the correct answer.

7 people successfully solved the map and successfully placed all the correct words in the correct places but were stumped by the final “aha!” They wrote in to say “I hate you.”
