i liked this one! made me laugh!
badbunnee**
Mar 01, 2005

Thank you, annie, angel, and juggle.

I have to admit, however, that this one is not original. I saw it several years ago and wish I could remember where so I could credit it. Thanks for the visit and comments !!!!!!

nicely done..i got the hook, line part..but i wasn't sure about the Titanic clue...

Doesn't matter if it isn't original. It is simply brilliant!

Sparklegirl*
Mar 14, 2005

That was a good one! I didn't get it at first because I thought u were sopossed 2 fill in the blank. Duh!
mr_brainiac*
Mar 14, 2005

Hilarious! I though I was supposed to "fill in the blank".
dutchymonster*en*
Mar 21, 2005

very good had 2 think about it - then gave up
elyse**
Apr 01, 2005

I'm always forgetting to look at the title. It would have helped a little, or maybe made me even more confused. I was trying to fill in the blank too, thinking that is was one of those double phrases, like on Wheel of Fortune or something, if that makes sense. I can't think of an example. Great teaser, though. One of my favorites!
badbunnee**
Apr 01, 2005

Thanks, elyse ... and everyone else above. I truly wish I "owned" this rebus, but its origin is lost to history. I can recall the person (visually) and even "hear" him talk, but have no record or information about who he was. I just feel very fortunate to have been able to remember him, and it, and use it. I love it !!!!!!

Soooooooo ..... to "unknown" artist, wit, creator, and author .....
thank you from everyone at Braingle !!!!!!!

Gizzer*
Apr 01, 2005

I think this is a perfect teaser of the day for April 1st
badbunnee**
Apr 01, 2005

Hey, giz ...
I was under the impression Braingle has a CAST-IRON rule about "personal comments" user-directed???


Or were you, maybe, using the "verb" form of "fool" and not the nominative.

OMG! A Totally Awesome teaser! Keep up the magnificent work! If people can't find fun with these teasers, they need to get away from them. You keep up the frame of teaser you are putting out! There will be others who will find fun working them out! Some people just don't realize you have to make your own fun with life!

This is the2nd rebus in a row that I've gotten almost immediately--and without the hint! Can 2 be considered 'on a roll'?

Thank you,elf, for contributing AND for attributing.

Darn, it figures that yesterday's rebus came to me quickly, and this one pummeled me. Oh well. And I forgot to cover the bottom part of the screen when I clicked on the link in my TOTD email, so I saw the answer before I saw that there was a hint. Boooo! That hint might've helped!

Auntiesis, J is hook-shaped, the blank is a line, and Titanic sank. I didn't get it at first either.

Babe*
Apr 02, 2013

The comma threw me off. It was not needed at all, but if it was used then a comma should have also been after the line. Hook, line, and sinker. Other than that it was kind of cute!
Maggiethe8th*us*
Apr 02, 2013

loved it!
gaylewolfAus*
Apr 02, 2013

This was a good one - thanks for posting. Incidentally, Babe, there is no need for a comma and the word "and" - current grammar rules have stated this. Such things are changing all the time!
iggy39Aus**
Apr 02, 2013

I just don't like rebuses. Just not my thing. But thanks for posting. I as usual didn't get it.
