I thought it was "the last part of the century". Not bad.

I agree -- I thought that this was 'the end of the century.' A good teaser, but with many reasonable answers.

Haha, I thought it was "U in ENTRY" which didn't make alot of sence too me, but still... there is a U somewhere in that ENTRY there..

can someone explain? (I get the "no see" part, and that a century is a long time...?)

C = 100, and ENTURY = years
C + ENTURY = 100 years

I would say 'the end of the century'

CENTURY means 100 years, a long time. and ENTURY doesn't have the letter C which sounds like SEE. hence, long time no see.

Feb 01, 2004

the answer is obviously long time no see.

Century is a long time, and if you take the C away then there is no C so it's long time no see

I knew it was century but didn't make the onnection. Outstanding rebus. On fav list.
marching_xc**
Jul 06, 2005

I thought it was going to be something like 0 because century is 100, but subtract C which means 100, and you would have nothing. Clever.

I liked it a lot. I couldn't colve it but I always give up on these really fast. I thought it was very well written if it is an original.

Sep 10, 2005

Thought it meant you (u) were blocking the entry...
did good
SmartiesRock*

That was really easy, but really cute. Even though I knew the answer, I had to read it twice.

That was so cute! I didn't get but one of my favorites anyway! I love rebuses like that! Keep up the good work

Sep 11, 2005

At first i didnt get it even tho ive heard it a thousand times i got after a while.


A century is a long time and theres no c in entury


I also thought it was the end of the century

I also knew the word was Century, but didn't make the connection.
spazzyjazzy93Aus*
Jul 15, 2006

OMG, THAT WAS SO GOOD IM LIKE STILL FREAKING OUT HERE!!!!!!!!!!

at first, i went with the obvious answer, "entry"
but then i started to think "T in ENURY? R in ENTUY? U in ENTRY?"
and i still couldnt figure it out!
THAT WAS SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!
Jimbo*au*
Sep 09, 2007

Jan 09, 2008

A good one, but I got ZERO.

Century = 100
C = 100

ENTURY = Century (100) - C (100) = Zero!
FredSAus*
Sep 21, 2008

Clever!
doeheadAus*
Sep 21, 2008

BAD. Does not make common sense I agree the answer is ZERO.
bradon182001*us*
Sep 21, 2008

Good rebus. I didn't get it, but after reading the answer, it makes perfect sense. Thanks for posting.
abrainus*
Sep 21, 2008

That was really good. A lol moment when I saw the answer. I too got hung up on the obvious.
Musikman212*ca*
Sep 21, 2008

To everyone who thought the answer was end of the century or Zero: You're missing the point of a rebus. They are generally a play on words, thus long time no see fits much more perfectly than the other answers.
UptheHillA*
Sep 21, 2008

Very nice, but I have to say I thought this one was a groaner too!!
emu77alu02us*
Sep 21, 2008

Ha! That was a good one! I didn't get it, and I suspect that is also why some of these people didn't like it
ttam007*
Sep 21, 2008

I thought it should be "zero" C is the roman numeral for 100 and a century is 100 years. So a century (100) minus C (100) is 0.
geccco*us*
Sep 21, 2008

That was an AWESOMER teaser!! I didn't get it, so you can join the club of the geccco stumpers (not very exclusive, its comprised of just about everyone, even me!) anyway luved the teaser, and am adding it to my faves!

#91 COMMENT!!!
haha!

Okay, well, I thought it had to do something with entry at 1st, too. But right when I clicked the "answer" link, I thought it might have something to do with century. Good one!
wm0912Aus*
Sep 21, 2008

I came up with the same as ttam007, 0. It was fun though.

Good one! Got me.
avonmaAus*
Sep 21, 2008

I wasn't thinking of century at all. I was trying to make a saying out of U in entry. You in entry. Like you are a shoe-in. Only something that followed the hint a little better. And I just couldn't get away from that.
I completely missed this one...so I didn't like it...
JakeSmellsWonderfully*fi*

That's is so dumb I hate you brainglers go to heaven like me, But Jake....G2G!

Sep 21, 2008

I didn't realize that it was century without a c. How foolish of me.
dsjtus*
Sep 22, 2008

It could also be
"the latter part of the century"

Turn of the century would be something like...

C
E
N
TURY
auntiesisAus*
Sep 22, 2008

I too got Century, without the C, but I still didn't come up with the right answer.
scallioAus*
Sep 24, 2008

I too was too quick and guessed END OF THE CENTURY, but of course, long time no C is much better!

It's a very clever rebus... loved it!

By the way, the answer ZERO takes some great thinking...
very impressed by this:

JoradZero:
I got ZERO.

Century = 100
C = 100

ENTURY = Century (100) - C (100) = Zero!
gaylewolfAus*
Sep 21, 2011

Like a few others, I got "end of a century" and thought "zero" but that didn't seem very clever or funny. Long time no see is a better answer, but I wouldn't have come up with that one! Hope my friends - the gentleman and the "girl" - have a wonderful day!!
HABS2933Aca*
Sep 21, 2011

Great teaser, unfortunately, I also started out on the "entry" line of thinking, and made my way to zero. I didn't spend a lot of time on it as rebuses are not my favorite puzzle, but doubt I would have ever come up with that answer even if I had a century to do it.
doeheadAus*
Sep 21, 2011

AWOR The reason I didn't comment on this before is I felt it wasn't worthy of a comment and I'm sorry but I still think it was bad. And a to guess who.
eamonca*
Sep 21, 2011

"End of the century" made enough sense to me and the stated answer requires an intermediate leap of logic which is not traditional for these.

If you allow for reaches of logic like that, you could also get "my car didn't start" from the name of the Buick model Century - missing the start of its name.

A tiny bit of a cheat in my opinion. Not quite in the spirit of the game.
auntiesisAus*

Not my fave. Not even close. Hi to G and K.
