Weekend Puzzle Solution!

Did you guys solve the puzzle yet?
Here it is again.

23.25.15.4.3.9.11.14.8.1.18.19.4.4.1.3.20.5.8.19.
8.18.1.?.8.3.5.20.5.3.15.19.9.14.14.25.8.3.1.5.

20.5.15.1.20.18.5.8.4.5.5.7.
8.20.5.19.5.7.20.9.4.14.7.!.

And here is my solution:
highlight to view

Each number is a letter. 1 is A, 2 is B, an so on.
Once translated it looks like this:

WYODCIKNHARSDDACTEHS
HRA?HCETECOSINNYHCAE

TEOATREHDEEG
HTESEEGTIDNG!

It's a rail fence cipher! Remember these from ICE?
Take the first top letter, then the letter below that, then the letter on the second column, the letter below that second column, etc. Now we have:

WHY ROAD? CHICKEN THE ACROSS DID NANCY THE CHASE

THE TO EASTER GET HIDDEN EGG!

Now just rearrange the words and voila!

WHY DID NANCY CHASE THE CHICKEN ACROSS THE ROAD?
TO GET THE HIDDEN EASTER EGG!

Not too bad huh? I think that was one of the more easier puzzles.
