My cartoons all have a funny little grey box in the corner.  Never seen it before.  Hope they're not all going to vanish.

Hi Pen,

I just woke up with your post open.  I must have dropped off to sleep about 3 hours ago in front of it.  I was Knacked.

If you have never seen the funny little grey box before, then this is probably the first time you have used Amazon AWS cartoons.  The number is just their catalogue number.

I have an answer to your rebus but I think there could be others.

SPOILER ALERT- Penís Rebus

I am a bit confused about your bonus question.  If it figures in the film then I think I have got the answer wrong.  If it is just the venue the third picture was shot at, then I think it was taken at the 2016 Senior PGA at Benton Harbor, Michigan.

Iíve got a busy day today, so I must get some shut-eye
Cheers, Jack

Hi Again Jack

You are spot on with the answer to my rebus :)  My bonus question was a sort of lame attempt at a bit of a joke.  I did mean the course in the third picture.  Never dreaming for one second that you'd spot it that easily!  Should have known better :)


I'm a bit knacked too :-Y  My chair & the remote are calling me!

'Full Monty' is one of the greatest Britcoms of all time. My daughter was at Uni in Sheffield at the time it was being filmed and she swears that her cat makes a brief appearance in one scene!

My film is also a politically aware comedy set in Yorkshire (the 'Deep South' as Tynesiders call it!} but  from one year earlier.

Two words 7/3

A great rebus & a great film Mike :)  Next time I re-watch the Full Monty I'll look out for your daughter's cat!

G'day Jack

Hope you survived your busy day.  It's bitterly cold here again today - had to scrape the ice off my windscreen before I could drive to work!

I'm continuing on a theme.  My rebus is a another classic British film from the noughties.  You'll find this easy peasy lemon squeezy ;D
#5 #6

Hint - first name of gent in picture 3.  Tack picture 2 onto the end of picture 1 please.

         

A little boy was walking on the road eating chocolate.
A man came over and said, "Son, eating chocolates is bad for your health."
The boy replied, "Do you know, my Grandpa lived to be 105 years old."
"By eating chocolates?" the man asked.
"No, by minding his own business!"

During his military service Elvis served in the bomb disposal unit...
due to his experience with suspicious mines!

Better get back to the grindstone!

Hi Pen,

I survived.  The chores werenít big things.  We had Dusty out for the day and we had to drive him back to Coorparoo in the heavy rain. 

The main chore was catching up on overdue correspondence with friends who we owed e-mails to.  That sentence will have Mike tut-tutting. A day of continuous rain seemed to be a good time to do it but two house-bound dogs provided a few distractions.  Some correspondence is more difficult to write when you realise you are in a happier place than your old friends.  It requires a certain delicacy and as you would realise delicacy is not one of my strengths.

   

I am struggling with one of Winston Churchillís quotes to present as a rebus.  I will get back to it after a bit more sleep.
Cheers, Jack

Hi Pen,

As promised a Churchillian quote that reflects his view of a country
^1  #6  #7  2  ^1  7(#3  #4)  6  ^2  #6
^ a typed word    # a picture     Red numeral an implied position

An  a  a       

If you know your Churchillian quotes you probably won't have to look at the pictures

Cheers, Jack

If you are struggling with Jack's very clever rebus, you might find this one a lot easier.

Movie & stage show - 5 words .... 3 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 4 ... the last image is 2 words.

Hi Les,

With all the clues I gave I think mine was easier and your rebus was at least as clever.  Perhaps we ought to conduct a poll.

I understand your movie is going to be shown at the Yetala Drive-in in July.

I'll do a spoiler alert in due course.
Cheers, Jack

For many years the Yatala drive in located in the Beenleigh area, was the last operating drive in theatre in Queensland.
I think that there are now a couple of others that have re - opened, one in Ipswich & another in Cairns.

What a wonderful & nostalgic night  out it would be to see this movie again at a drive in which is where i actually first saw it.

One of my fondest memories of the drive in was when my grandmother was visiting.
My mum & stepdad were in the front seat of the holden station wagon & i was in the back with grandma ( Hazel ).
Hazel had never been to a drive in theatre & was amazed by the size of the screen & the incredible technology that allowed us to hook up a speaker to the car window.
The movie we watched was " JAWS ". ( did i do that correctly John? , actually i couldn't give a rats)
It was a good movie but the most enjoyment i got from that night was from the comical commentary & physical reactions of Hazel, particularly in those close up scenes when the shark would lunge unexpectedly with jaws wide open.
Hazel was of short stature but managed to jump high enough to almost hit the car roof & i won't repeat the comments that she made in between her exited laughter & screaming as she tightly gripped my arm with both hands.

Hi Jack & Les

I solved Jack's rebus fairly easily but I was already halfway there as I was familiar with the quote.  I just had to wrinkle it out in the right order.  Sorry Les but I'm all at sea with your rebus though I did enjoy your story of going to the drive in to see Jaws with your grandma Hazel. 

I will nip off & get a cuppa & come back to it in a few minutes.  I've not thought about a puzzle yet as I've had a busy morning.  Hopefully things will be a little quieter this afternoon.

Oh Jack we had tons of snow yesterday evening & it settled & of course it froze over night so I had great fun defrosting my car this morning.  Luckily my neighbour came along & gave me a squirt! I took a quick snap on my mobile & e-mailed it to myself but I can't seem to attach it to anything :-R  Somebody needs to let the weather know it's April & not still February!

I would take issue with your last comment! (If I may :))

Like Arnie I'll be back...

Had a blinding flashing of inspiration :laugh:  I think Les's rebus is one of No1 daughter's favourite shows to see at the theatre  >:D

I'd call it a tie as both rebuses are clever & tricky :)

SPOILER ALERT Ė My rebus

SPOILER Alert- Lesís Rebus and details of the Yetala Drive-in screening[/url

Hi Pen,

I think Iíll let that one go through to the keeper.  All Iíll say is anything that gets you to work in good spirits is OK.

As youíve taken a selfie youíd like us to see: create a new folder on your C-drive;  Download the attachment to it and then browse the folder in Chi.

Youíve had snow but weíve had 5 inches of rain in two days.  Looking forward to your rebus but I hope I sleep through to morning.

 

 :-Z :-Z :-Z
Cheers, Jack

I'm Back Jack!

I've pinched an idea from Les for my rebus.  It's a stage show.
#2 #4 #4 #3


You need first name of gent in picture 2.  Change the first letter.

I think this joke may have whiskers on it >:D
Three men were in a bar enjoying a pint & discussing coincidences. The first man said, "my wife was reading a "tale of two cities" and she gave birth to twins"
"Thatís funny", the second man remarked, "my wife was reading 'the three musketeers' and she gave birth to triplets"
The third man shouted, "Good God, I have to rush home!"
When asked what the problem was, he exclaimed, " When I left the house, my wife was reading Ali baba and the forty Thieves"!!!

I was just going to sign off when I spotted your post.  I would like it put on record that my neighbour squirted my car with her can of de-icer >:D  I did set off for work in good spirits but sadly it didn't last long once I started working!
My picture wasn't a selfie.  I opened the front door to put some rubbish in the bin & the snow was bucketing down & it looked more like the middle of winter rather than April! I was so flabbergasted I took a quick snap on my phone. Nowt very exciting I'm afraid.
Just wanted to say I particularly liked your Richard III cartoon - really tickled me :laugh:
