T13 - Rebus Brainteaser Edition


Thirteen of Lyn's Favorite Rebus Brainteasers



I like rebus word puzzles. A rebus is "a representation of words in the form of pictures or symbols, often presented as a puzzle." 

Here are 13 to figure out (answers below). Plus an extra credit set for the compulsive gamers in our midst. No googling! However, if you simply must know the answers after you guess then I found all of the following at the NIEHS Kids' Page.

1. me repeat
2. IFLAND IFIFC
3. thought an
4. shcryame
5. DAY L8 DOLLA
6. Time Time
7. $0 all all all all
8. _____ it
9. ban ana
10. daydayout
11. abcdefghjmopqrstuvwxyz
12. calm storm
13. Chimadena

Extra Credit
1) BA NK
2) . _____ range
3) 1 knows
4) pawalkrk
5) va ders
6) BIRD
7) PEN sword

Do you like humor? Just so you know what you're getting into, here are a series of "micro-horrors" that you can read for free.

And now for the answers to my favorite rebus puzzles:

1. Repeat after me.
2. One if by land, two if by sea.
3. An afterthought.
4. A cryin' shame.
5. Day late and a dollar short.
6. Time after time.
7. Free for all.
8. Blanket
9. Banana Split
10. Day in, day out.
11. Missing link.
12. Calm before the storm.
13. Made in China.

Extra Credit:
1. (I can't remember, sorry!)
2. Point blank range.
3. (I can't remember this one, either!)
4. A walk in the park.
5. Space invaders.
6. Big Bird.
7. The pen is mightier than the sword.

Knitting Maniac said...

I need to send my husband here to solve those. He loves that stuff. Me ... I just stare at it ... and feel stupid.

My TT is up, too.

Christina said...

Oh no, I am terrible at these things! One of my junior high teachers loved to write them on the board and I could never guess them! (You think I'd remember a few though...) Well, let's see, I can see Big Bird, the pen is mightier than the sword, double time, free for all, calm before the storm. Ok...I got a couple! This is a very creative idea for a list!

Lyn said...

Christina, you're the first to get free for all ($0 4 all) lol! You're great at this! Knitting, never feel dumb. Just know your brain works differently! lol Missi, you got the most I think. Almost got the "free for all" one too. Thanks all for visiting. lgp

Carmen said...
