|Here is, to my knowledge, the only one-character rebus thus far to appear on Braingle.|
If you know of any others (on Braingle), please post the Teaser # here.
I wish to thank the editors for their patience in helping me get it formatted and posted.
There are some (not many) one-letter rebuses in existence but most are "one-word" answers and not in a "phrase" format preferred by Braingle and are also not necessarily "common" (idiomatic) expressions.
For example: N ("enlarge") or x ("annex").

I received an e-mail about this one, but having difficulty finding just the "right" common expression.
If anybody can do it, let us know here.

I probably won't

|OK .... OK ......|
Ya got me !!!!! (feigns last-gasp Hollywood oater-movie-type death-rattles)
the "n" is NOT a single-character entry !!!!!!
It is surrounded by HUNDREDS of "blank" characters.
Yep ..... "blank" (space) is a legit character (ASCII 032)
I shall NOT reveal your name OR your screenie. And if you do so, yourself, I shall call you a "dirty-rat-liar" and unleash the "hounds of hades" (textually) or - (heaven forbid), rebusly - upon you.
