No apostrophe after the q, but otherwise good. I got half of it but messed up the second word, thinking that it should be 5 or 6 words in total. Had "No ten to queue for it." or "Nothin' to queue for it." I knew they weren't right, but couldn't quite twist my head the right way.

I need a first cup of coffee. It was a very good rebus or what ever you call it. I got part of it right, but that's like eating a sundae without the cherry on top. Thanks for the post. I enjoyed it muchly.

Oh my! I see I already pondered this teaser a year ago and couldn't solve it then either! I don't even remember it. I must be losing my mind!

jimmyh20*
Jul 01, 2010

Here's and alternate solution:

NO= No
XQQ= xqs (excuse)
IV=I've
IT= done it (it is at the end, or done)

Clever

Seems to be more like a code than a Rebus, but still very good

I'm not sure I want to be a clever sausage. I don't like sausage, but I'll take that as a compliment! Solved it easily; my cup of tea! Like reading license plates.

That was a really very easy one. I uaually like easy, but this was too easy to be fun. Sorry, but thanks anyhow for posting. I can't even post so I should not complain. If it wasn't for all of you, I would not have any fun at all.

I really, really need to read the titles! Tried a few different way that didn't work Enjoyed the solution, though!

Excellent Rebus-Teaser example to illustrate a couple problems with Braingle vis-à-vis Rebuses.

Note the comments above that seem to mark the dichotomy between "too easy" and "too hard".

"Easy" for those viewers who are able to make the "intuitive leap" from what is seen on the page to the eventual answer.

"Difficult" - maybe even impossible - for those viewers who are NOT able to perform this "lateral thinking" trick to solve the puzzle.

Same (apparently) with too many Braingle editors.

We (the BunnyBunch) get many rebus submittals rejected with editorial comments like ....

"body does not lead to conclusion"

or ....

"too much of a stretch to get to the answer"

Of course they don't. If the body "led" to the conclusion instead of "suggesting" it, then you wouldn't have a "rebus" puzzle.

If there were no "stretch" of the imagination, then there is no Rebus.

You might have some OTHER kind of word puzzle, but it wouldn't be a Rebus.

I wonder how many Editors reject otherwise legitimate Rebuses because they are unable to make the "intuitive"/"creative" leap to the answer.

Just speculating. CAREFUL, everyone (especially Editors) ... this is no indictment.

The BunnyBunch

STILL laughing ....

intuitive leap met here; quite easy

After more than a month away, I was disappointed, but not surprised to come back to a 10 year old puzzle.
I was hoping the editors would have heeded the suggestions of so many that they use some of the newly submitted puzzles instead o recycling the same old teasers on the same date year after year.
