I agree with pretty much everyone else. This is a great teaser, and I didn't get it but when I read the answer it was -- of course!!! Thanks for posting.

Don't know why,but my brain lit up and figured this one fairly easy.

I thought this one was hard...until I saw the answer. Well, I still think it was hard, since I didn't get it.
Good one. Thanks!

I agree with most of the others. It was too hard for me, then I saw the answer and slapped my forehead. Thanks for a great teaser.

I think the clues are misleading. If the sky is the limit, then the answer to "can I fly in the sky?" should be "no."

Did I figure out this teaser? Yes Did I see this teaser before? Yes
Was this another repeat? Yes
Do the editors ever give us new teasers? NO

I got this one easily, it was a very good one

Well, I am with the majority who did not get it, however I agree with Craniac. He should not have been able to fly in the sky. That takes away from the answer. Sorry to point that out!

Good Rebus.

Fine example of the "story" Rebus. Relies on what the "ear" "hears" instead of what the "eye" "sees" ...

... or, more properly, on what the "eye" ("eye of the mind) does NOT "see".

And this NOT "seeing" generates the "intuitive leap" (an "educated" guess).

These two things (the "eye" of the mind) and (the "ear" of the "read") are the basis of ALL Rebus-writing and Rebus-solving.

Most of us (Braingle Editors included) sometimes forget that and try to solve (or limit) Rebuses based on linear rules.

Won't work. Never has. Never will.

Of course my "windedness" will now be decried - by some here - as just more "jibber-jabber".

Is it not sad that some adults are doomed to go through life calling everything they don't understand ...

"jibber-jabber"

My four-year old great-grandson became fond of that expression in his pre-school experiences.

Fortunately we (his mom, dad, and I) worked him out of that.

Thanks for the "listen". Keep plunkin'

Of course after I read the answer it was so obvious.

Good One! I thought "Father knows best," crossed my fingers, clicked show answer, but got buzzed out.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't see how this is a rebus. It's a cute teaser though.

Didn't get it again.
