I must be really daft because I still don't get it. Is 'issues' supposed to sound like 'tennis shoes'?

mogmatt - why are you so negative? you're the only one that didn't say anything positive, just like you are on a lot of teasers. Great teaser BTW!

Hoo Yahhhhhhhhh ... people here have issues, all right.
It was awfully easy for me, but I think it depends on your frame of mind when you first see it. Also - your frame of reference. Not everyone in the U.S. calls them tennis shoes, right? Sneakers...Gym shoes... ?

Awsome. One of the best of these I've seen.
FulanitoGM*sv*
Sep 07, 2005

Well, it sounds like people are pretty divided on this one! I think it's hilarious how some things polarize people so fiercely like that.

Of course, for those of you who didn't like it, you make it very difficult for me to defend negative comments in the comments section if you don't give any good reasons for not liking it. I'm not a fan of every single teaser on here either, but I don't insult anyone who posts them on here. Some of you guys are just mean, and that sucks!

Anyway, I liked it. I admit, I needed the hint, but I did figure it out. Good job!

Sep 07, 2006

I'm no dummy, but I haven't had a lot of luck with rebuses so far. I really liked this one. I didn't get it at first sight, but didn't use a hint either, I just counted the "issues" and said it a few times in my head and said Yeah I got one. Thanks for the smile.
doka13*ml*

AWW, THAT WAS HARD! well, better luck next time for me. nice teaser btw.
Badger*us*
Sep 07, 2006

I thought the submitter had a "pile of issues" and I even counted ten of them! I felt that this was a pretty lame teaser..... Until I read the answer! GREAT REBUS! I had a mini streak going of 10 days w/o missing one, and got tripped up on this one. Great job. Thanks! Oh well, tomorrow's another Braingle day.

got this one right after the hint ,good one thankyou
shawneeo*us*
Sep 07, 2006

Darn! I didn't read the hint! I always overlook the hint. I counted the issues, I said in my there are ten issues, there's a pile of issues, a column of issues, pressing issues, deep issues, personal issues, ..., you get it...

That was really GREAT! That's one of the best rebus teasers ever, it seems so simple after ya know the answer. Makes me say "Wait, wait!!!!! If I go back I can get it this time, really! Just one more chance!

Thanks!

Groan! I've got to remember it to tell my friend who loves puns. He'll love this one!
MurfQ*ca*
Sep 07, 2006

I should have read the hint. I just figured it was something like many issues or the issues are piling up or some such thing. Figured it was pretty lame, then I read the answer. Doh!

Very clever! And here I was doing so well, getting them every day. After reading the answer, I could kick myself for not getting it. Gotta love those kind of teasers, they truly live up to the name teaser!
djmac71*
Sep 07, 2006

I thought it was issues on top of issues as well until I read the hint and then I got it. That's a good one. I love it.

Sep 12, 2006

I second that:

I wish I remembered to cover up the answer on the screen until I clicked on the Hint link, because with the hint, I might've had a chance... but because it's a rebus, I gave up before I started thinking it (but not before I counted ten issues and even said it out loud).

The answer made me go "Doh!" Good one.

Funny! Got it after the hint. It's like that game, "Mad Gab" where things written one way SOUND totally different when spoken.
My name is Robyn. My mom once asked my husband if he wanted a toasted bun or a regular bun with his hamburger (we were barbecuing) and he said, "I'll take a raw bun." I yelled out, "You already HAVE a raw bun! Get it?? Rawbun! ROBYN!" As I laughed hysterically, they all looked at me like I was nuts.... I put it on my license plate.
Interpreter2
Sep 07, 2009

I can't believe how quickly I got this! As soon as I saw the list of "issues." I counted them immediately, then said Ten, Issues. Then quickly, and ta da! I got it!
I must be conditioning my brain to think correctly when doing these! Perhaps I'll stay sharp long into old age if I keep this up!
Thanks for this!

Nice to find a new one of these.

How about "issue" instead of "issues"? Or "eschew".
