The Dancing Men

Has anyone deciphered the "dancing men" on the board in that fraction of a second shot at the end?  I meant to try, but have not had time.

I would be disappointed if it did not have some meaning to it, given all the other clue bits that are strewn throughout.

Re: The Dancing Men

I can't remember what thread it was in, but I know I saw it! Maybe First Impressions?? 


It apparently meant "Never gonna give you up" which made me chuckle.

Re: The Dancing Men

Here´s the code:

I think it´s the sign from the original short story? (I) AM HERE - ABE SLANEY?

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: The Dancing Men

A confirmation - it is definitely the same letter sequence:

Re: The Dancing Men

Awesome digging. I think I was much too tired!

Re: The Dancing Men

Thanks to everyone for digging this out.  I can go to bed early rather than cryptoanalyzing (is that a word?)

What a pity! Actually, the simple quotation is a bit disappointing, isn't it?
