WE RUN THIS TEXT JUST AS IT WAS WAY BACK THEN ...
From the editor: We are proud to present our first Tiny Town Teaser by master puzzler Adam G. Perl.
Adam is a certified X-word wizard and has provided puzzles for such ballyhooed rags as The New York Times.
He also once served as stage manager for an off-Broadway play called "No Place to Be Somebody," a damn good bit of theater that ought to be revived now that we have a Black President.
Adam also whistles. Professionally. We think it comes with being a word pro, a way of letting off steam from all that mental activity.
If you think an itty-bitty three-letter crossword puzzle is a cinch, we suggest you keep coming back as Adam has a few surprises for you.
We intend to run Tiny Town Teasers as a regular feature.
We also know you are most likely looking at this while at work. If so, beware the teaser. Send one to your boss. It should keep he/she/it off your ass for three minutes at the very least. Enough time for you to finish your own.
Check for answers to today's puzzle in next Saturday's Tiny Town Times. Ha! That means you have to check in over the weekend and help boost our ratings. Much appreciated.

PS 2013: We don't publish answers any more (don't cheat). They are provided for a fee of $3-$5. We pay $5 for each and always have. Check "Contact Us" for payment info.
BTW: The photo is a capture of a pair of old school boyz engaged in a playful homo erotic romp. We believe they once served as garden ornaments, met with disaster and got discarded in the sideyard of a downtown residence, there to be mocked.
