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
3. thought an
4. shcryame
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
7) PEN sword
