Sam loves to communicate by using rebus puzzles. This is sometimes confusing for other residents of the university dormitory. One night, this sign was posted on Sam's door:

NIOILTE
FIRE

The other residents have no idea what Sam is up to. Do you?

NO Comment! Kind of a stretch!

A stretch is good from time to time; keeps the brain from cramping up. Here's the explanation for this rebus that I wrote down before checking the answer: Burning the midnight oil. ("OIL" is in the middle of "NITE" and is on (over) "FIRE, and hence is burning.)

I knew what he meant, but I couldn't think of the exact phrase. Good one - clever and made me think! Everyone, have a great day!! :wink: :)

Wow!!! That was one of the best this year. I spent at least 10 minutes but I got it. Thanks for a good one. :D :D

Wow! I didn't even try, and I would not ever have gotten it anyway. :roll: :roll:

Almost a good one. Too bad you spelled night wrong.

Posted by davidrools02/28/12
Pretty good. I see how it could seem a stretch, from "on fire" to "burning," but that's a fairly straightforward alternate meaning. I'm not sure if there are rules for rebuses that prevent this, but I'm going to allow it. :wink:

Good one, but I think it should be spelled "night".
