It comes from a TV show in the US in the 60's.  At the end of the show they
would put an encrypted message on the screen.  It was a simple, fixed offset
transposition encryption.  The secret decoder ring came in a cereal box and
simplified the decryption.  Usually the message was something like "Kids,
remember to ask your mom to buy more Toasty O".
