Cryptogram has a certain twist

    This cryptogram has a certain twist to it but I'm thinking that I may have made the wording a bit odd to accomplish this with out leaving too many obvious clues....

    Oh and just incase some of you may not have done a cryptogram before it is a simple one for one letter exchange code.
    Example:
    J X P D M Z J J X Y is
    L O N G F E L L O W

    note that this is not the same as the code used for the cryptogram above.

    ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    K..N.IYRCPC.SHUFDVGMA.OTL.

    The answer is that your crytogram is ill at ease. You could have made it harder by asking what is amiss in this 'one'. That was my start point.

    That's a good idea. The original version was quite easy and I decided to change it. I tried to make sure that the first couple words weren't given away too easily by it being a question. The original started with the word "can". I was wary about the number of two and three letter words I used, but I was worried about making it too short for people who are not very inclined with this sort of thing.
