That was fun!
I didn't get "ex" either. I got "cue" and "me" and just put "res" in front for rescue me. I didn't notice the "s" in the clue. I didn't know what THAT meant, but at least I got a word out of it. I got everything else, though. Please give us some more! Thanks!

Yes, that was really easy, but also really fun. I thought of past for former, but when I got cues and me, I thought of ex. Good job. Thanks

The answer on the last one made more sense your way; I was stuck on "Was cues me" didn't make a whole lotta sense.

Good teaser. Got them all except the Be Mine took me a bit, but I misread it as a SPINNING insect instead of STINGING so I couldn't figure it out. Once I realised what it really said, it was easy

Very neat. Tidy. Great puzzle and great idea.

Almost "Rebus-like" and I think that's why I like it so much.

Gave it TOPS rating for fun.

Let's submit, comment on, and vote on MORE like this ... and especially more Rebuses. What do you think about it?

Let us know here. Don't just cruise by and not comment or vote.

Thanks for reading.
