    $\begingroup$ I'm not 100% sure what to tag this, but I can tell that it's not an anagram of any sort. It's a kind of a mix of a riddle and a cipher, and it requires some amount of prior knowledge (this is solvable without any prior knowledge, but I'd imagine it'd be pretty hard). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Can you elaborate on what kind of prior knowledge might apply? For instance, does my prior knowledge of birds help me at all, or would I need to know something about squirrels, too? $\endgroup$ Mar 21, 2016 at 14:57

    $\begingroup$ Just being familiar with some concepts is enough. What could "anti-art" mean, and what is the "ox" of it? $\endgroup$
