Clever, except for many of us 'dew' and 'due' sound like "Jew", not "do".

pretty good...jest the dew part mixed me up but still good..!

Very clever. According to my dictionary, there is no "J" sound at the beginning of any of them. In America do, dew, and due are all pronounced with a "D" sound.
You can check the American Heritage Dictionary on line. It provides audio of how to say the word in case anyone would care to check it out.

Great rebus/teaser. I'm glad to see you got it accepted by the eds. Even though "do", "dew", "due" are not pronounced EXACTLY the same, they are close enough for a punned rebus. Hope to see some more.

This was a really good rebus. I have to take notes...

"Clever, except for many of us 'dew' and 'due' sound like "Jew", not "do"."

It's do the Dew, not do the Jew.

I have to agree with spazzyjazzy93! I don't get it either.

I get it, but I still have to agree with Timon and Crazylady.

Sep 12, 2007

I'm sorry, but I have to agree this rebus is faulty because of the different pronunciation of due and dew. It's not in fact a two do list, due and dew both being pronounced to rhyme with you, not with do. I give it a D, make it a C- for effort.

I got it pretty quickly. I am amazed sometimes when I read the comments. This a rebus, not a pronunciation lesson. The words are all forms of do, therefore, "two do" list!

Thanks for a good teaser!

2do or not to do

Great teaser, I missed it.

Dictionary.com lists the primary pronunciation of all three words as 'doo'.

Although there are secondary listings of 'dyoo' for Due and Dew, I'm not sure why so many chose to complain.

Good work.

I liked it. Funny!

I guess this was a targeted rebus. I live in Chicago, and here 'do', 'dew' and 'due' are all pronounced EXACTLY the same, as confirmed by aforementioned dictionary. Or refer to any Mountain Dew commercial to witness their rendition of their tag line 'Do the Dew' where they happen to avoid the questionably offensive pronounciation 'Do the Jew' in favor of the more accurate, significantly catchier 'do the do'. So seriously, where are you Jew people from?

I was actually thinking it was "a pile of doo doo"

Sep 12, 2007

Sorry, I thought the answer to the rebus was "A pile of doo doo", not the rebus itself. I did not mean to offend.
BikerDankAus*
Sep 12, 2007

Where are you people from? Do, Dew and Due are all pronounced the same, when pronounced correctly.

scallioAus*
Sep 12, 2007

Very clever teaser-- I was not able to solve it. Enjoyed it though!

I enjoyed reading the comments because I have been many places in this great world and never imagined that Do, Dew and Due would not be pronouned the same in all English speaking cultures. Wow!
Wonder how some pronounce digeridoo compared to me?!

jtoupence: Your answer was pretty funny too!

I didn't get it at first, but it made me laugh. Nice.

Cute teaser. I was thinking poop, not the to do list.

I loved this one But it blew right past my brain as so many in the rebus category) But,it passed the 'put a smile on my face' test
P.S. After all this time on this site, I'll admit, I find the constant nit pickering and criticisms ANNOYING!
C'mon folks! It's BRAINGLE!!! Not a thesis .

I think its only America that pronounce dew and due like doo. How do they pronounce Pew then? Poo? And what about Hue? Hoo? Why so inconsistent?
sbuskeAus*
Sep 12, 2007

Where are you people from that pronounce it jew? Do you have morning jew on the grass? Are your bills past jew? Jew us a favor and enjoy the teaser. So you didn't get it....move on. And who cares if you gave it a c-.Most people including myself thought it was fun.

I loved it. Very clever and refreshing. Thanks so much for the teaser.

Sep 12, 2007

I thought it was a great teaser. For those who didn't get it, there's 2 do's in each line. The 3 lines make a list. Therefore a 2 do list. (And here in Maine....do, due, dew, and Jew all rhyme but not with pew or hue, which do rhyme with each other! Got that??? lol)

I have too many To Do Lists, loved yours though.

I thought it was 'a list of things to do'.

As for the earlier comment, the 3 words are pronounced exactly the same. You and yew are said the same and rhyme with the first 3. Pew, few, Jew rhyme with each other, different from the previous 5. American English is NOT consistent in spelling/pronunciation!!

I guessed "due dates", which I think works too!
Fangster
Sep 12, 2010

I'm going to be boring and add my two cents worth again on the pronunciation:

this ONLY works if you pronounce it in the American style. "Due and Dew" are pronounced "Dyu" in the Queens English... rendering the solution difficult or incorrect. Please try to make these puzzles internationally relevant. thanks.

I though it was just a big pile of do do. Whoops!
