Wow, if I read your award icons right, Tedger, you've submitted 5 teasers, but you've voted on 2,500 of them! That's dedication.

I totally disagree with Puttumup. I thnk this is one of the best teasers I've seen in a long time. Really good job, Tedger. And no, I didn't get it, but it does make perfect sense.

i got a completely different answer:

if you add a D each middle word in both phrases you get:

mary sueD jane-- bob fireD jim

in the name of the law

whatever,
i liked yours better...

have a good monday...

good but the girl names were in my opinion confusing and unnecessary

I first thought "No one above the law" That didn't work; Then,"Ladies First" that was better but not good enough

Good teaser!

I love reading the wrong answers people come up with. Always good for a laugh. WHY would you even share, when half of them make no sense at all?

Very good teaser, I didn't get it, but it was very clever. I hope to see some more. Thanks Ted!

Very good! I didn't get it, and I couldn't even match the clever answers in the comments, but I am still smiling.

I LIKED IT.
I thought it was "Everyone is
equal under the law" but now
I see they were all women's names above the word LAW.
You Rule! I Lose!

Has it ever been changed to
NoONE is above the law?

Puttumup must have been erased!
I can't find that comment now.

GREAT TEASER !!!

I believe that "No man is above the law" is a common phrase which uses the word "man" in a general sense--which would also include women. The purpose for the women's names above the word LAW is so that it would be read correctly. Otherwise it could be read "Bob, Fred, and Jim are not above the law." I think this is a very cleverly written rebus. (And it doesn't mean that all women are above the law--just the ones named here )

I actually read it as "On opposite sides of the law". I was so sure it was right, and actually, I still think it works, but that's a good teaser for that reason. Loved it

I didn't get the Rebus, but I am sure, according to comments here that its a good Teaser. I used a simple method to solve this Rebus but I didn't get "Above". I was then lost.

Clever, indeed...

Just as an FYI - here is the full quote from Teddy Roosevelt's Third State of the Union:
"No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we require him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor."
