June Fun

For the last two years (2006 and 2007), I have done something in June. If you solve this code-doku, you can do a quick web search to find out more about the event. (You can also find out more about me, if you dig a little...)

Place each of the letters in DO I SCREAM? exactly once in each row, column and 3×3 box. When you have completed the puzzle, the shaded squares will form a hidden message read left to right, then top to bottom.

Difficulty: Easy

Here is a print-friendly version of this puzzle.

 

Other difficulties:
All of these can be solved using the sudoku placement rules alone, and they all have the same hidden message. Choose a puzzle difficulty that fits your interest, or solve the easy puzzle then try a harder one after you know the message.
