Huh? I hope I'm not the only one who doesn't get this one...

That was hard, but simple when I read the answer. Excellent work Jazz! You've moved away from riddles into rebuses. I like it. It looks like you put lots of thought into that one. Keep them coming!

That was a pretty good rebus. You got my brain working overtime on that one.

Terrific job but hard.

Thanks for those comments...I tried to put my thinking cap on and move away from many of the stock-standard rebuses that appear here. Maybe, it's a bit 'left-field'...oh well.

Man, this must have been horrible for people who don't know their greek mythology. Lucky for me, Though!

Thanks Imculae...some of the others that are coming are a little worse!

Probably shouldn't have mixed Greek and Roman names... Persephone was Greek, the rest were the Roman names. I got the hell part, I was just confused as hell (so to speak) about the rest. I thought the "or" represented another way to look at it.

Fun though. Lol .. i thought it might've been "shopping is hell."

That's very clever! But isn't the phrase "Come hell or high water"?

At any rate, it's one of my favourites now

Thanks for that Storm...I've heard the expression used both ways. I suppose it depends on what part of the worl you're from.

Very difficult; but, I really enjoyed this. Kudos. Ihave read many many of yours and you have not disappointed. On a public personal note, in one of your teasers you classified which family the piano was in, thanks for that. I always wondered.

Thankyou for your kind words ares. I appreciate that.

It's a cool idea, but I've never heard that expression, and I don't get the drought bit. Doesn't the antarctic part explain the high water by itself?

Antarctic bit threw me. Surely if the sea rises, it rises everywhere. It can't just rise in Antarctica?

Well constructed and fun; thanks. For those a little new to this genre, (like me!) a clue giving the number of words in the phrase would help.

MalcolmReynolds is right. Pluto is Hades's Roman name.
