It's been a while, but the Thursday code puzzlers are back! The idea is simple: solve the coding problem as efficiently as you can, in any language or framework that you think is suitable.

Note: Even though there really is nothing stopping you from finding a solution to this on the internet, try to keep honest, and come up with your own answer.  It's all about the participation!
