Learning Puzzles Part 1

Leave comments here: 6 comment(s)
While we wait for Wei-Hwa’s next puzzle, I decided to run a series on Puzzles using Wikipedia as a guide. This is targeted at puzzle newbies and will cover topics on puzzles (including famous people).

Topic: Acrostic [Definition]


"An acrostic is a poem or other text written in an alphabetic script, in which the first letter, syllable or word of each verse, paragraph or other recurring feature in the text spells out another message…"
Excerpt from Wikipedia. Read the full article at wikipedia1.

Example: (Improvised!)
COMA
- Click on my Links, do not delay
- On this great and wonderful day
- My puzzle blog will show you the way
- Ads by AdSense, I added in May

Note: Had to take the sentence out. :-). There is a hidden sentence in this acrostic.

Disclaimer: I AM not allowed (decided to obey the law) to use the acrostic before this because it violated AdSense Policies (under incentives). Having said that, this is still an EXAMPLE. :-)

Homework:
Can anyone come up with a good acrostic for the word google?
