A Probplexer

I am puzzled and need help! A recent message on a MathForum listserve had the following message:


The engraved question over the bar where my late father, a farmer, "wintered" (playing cards and pool, not drinking) comes to mind:
YIZDERZOBEDDYBOROR-
ZEZAZZEZDENDERIZHORZEZ?

The answer to this timeless question remains elusive; what is the explanation for the strange, but overwhelming, lack of 1-1 correspondence?
Any one have any ideas?
