I'm sure you already know, but the reference is to Leslie Thomas's most famous novel 'The Virgin Soldiers',
Great novel, great film.


I remember reading the book Mike but I'm damned if I can remember watching the film!

Hi Jack

Having a fairly lazy Sunday. 

I was a bit short of inspiration today but I've come up with a simple little rebus.
It's a film from 1974.

The first word is plural.

         

Think I'm in need of a cuppa - better put the kettle on!

The Virgin Soldiers. Well worth looking out. Made in 1969. An all-star cast, many of whom are no longer with us, alas.
Like all great comedies it has its share of poignant moments, as well as (in my opinion) a truly memorable climax.

Pardon the interruption.

I took a screen shot of the cartoon  bath & sent it to our groomer.

You folks should know: some of your jokes cause me not only smile but to laugh out loud.

SPOILER ALERT - Pens Rebus

Hi Pen,

If you are into films like that you would like a 1973 Australian film Alvin Purple  Plenty of nudity, gratuitous sex, and weak jokes. :D

My laptop packed it in and I have spent a lot of yesterday and today bringing my old computer up to date.  So this story seems appropriate.


A tourist in the Arctic Circle looks at his computer, covered in ice,
and says to his friend; "My computer's frozen!"

So, his friend says: "You must have left windows open."

And then his friend sees all the ice has disappeared, and asks:
 "How did you fix it?"

To which, he replied: "I logged on to Hotmail!!"


Must get back to bringing the old beast up to scratch – the computer that is. >:D
Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack



Feeling a bit grumpy this morning ;D

I'm not really into that sort of film!  It was just a text from my window cleaner's wife that brought it to mind :laugh:

This is much more up my street...
#5


or this
#7 #4

First picture is a homophone.

      

After ordering a milkshake, a man had to leave his seat in the restaurant to use the loo. Since he didn't want anyone to take his shake, he took a paper napkin, wrote on it, "The world's strongest weight lifter," and left it under his glass.
When he returned from making his call, the glass was empty. Under it was a new napkin with a note that said "Thanks for the treat!" It was signed, "The world's fastest runner."

Leave you with a silly joke ;D

Your milkshake story reminded me of one that Billy Connolly told.
Same situation,a man,sitting in a bar with a fresh pint in front of him, needs to go and pee.
He leaves a note on the top of the glass which reads: 'I have spat in this pint.'
On his return he finds the pint where he left it only now, added to his message are the words 'So have I.'

SPOILER ALERT -  Pen's Movies

Hi Pen,

I hope you left your grumpy shoes home today.

My Rebus is an interesting period in the history of the Roman Empire.

3  #4  2  3  #4  #8

I have not pictured the 2 "the"s and the "of"




Some Phyllis Diller one-liners:

  • - Housework can't kill you, but why take a chance?

    - Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shovelling the sidewalk before it stops snowing.

    - The reason women don't play football is because 11 of them would never wear the same outfit in public.

    - Best way to get rid of kitchen odours: Eat out.

    - A bachelor is a guy who never made the same mistake once.

    - I want my children to have all the things I couldn't afford. Then I want to move in with them.

    - Most children threaten at times to run away from home. This is the only thing that keeps some parents going.

    - Any time three New Yorkers get into a cab without an argument, a bank has just been robbed.

    - We spend the first twelve months of our children's lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve years telling them to sit down and shut up.

    - Burt Reynolds once asked me out. I was in his room.

    - What I don't like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.

    - The only time I ever enjoyed ironing was the day I accidentally got gin in the steam iron.

    - His finest hour lasted a minute and a half.

    - Old age is when the liver spots show through your gloves.

    - My photographs don't do me justice -they just look like me.

    - I admit, I have a tremendous sex drive. My boyfriend lives forty miles away.

    - Tranquillizers work only if you follow the advice on the bottle - keep away from children.

    - I asked the waiter, 'Is this milk fresh?' He said, 'Lady, three hours ago it was grass.'

    - The reason the golf pro tells you to keep your head down is so you can't see him laughing.

    - You know you're old if they have discontinued your blood type.

A short neurological test

1- Find the C below.. Please do not use any cursor help.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

2- If you already found the C, now find the 6 below.

99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
69999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999

3 - Now find the N below. It's a little more difficult.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNMM
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

This is NOT a joke. If you were able to pass these 3 tests,
you can cancel your annual visit to your neurologist. Your brain is great and you're far from having a close
relationship with Alzheimer.

Congratulations!

G'day Jack

My grumpy shoes are definitely at home but who knows if they'll stay there - ask me again at 5pm :laugh:

I was very smug as I thought I'd solved your rebus nice & quickly!  Wrong :-R  Having stumbled across the right answer I did find it interesting reading :)

I've moved from Ancient Rome to Ancient Greek myth with my rebus.

#3 #5 #7 #2 #4

THEOF

I loved your Phyllis Diller :laugh:  I'll offer you a little Joan Rivers.  Not as funny but still made me chuckle ;D

“I hate housework. You make the beds, you wash the dishes and six months later you have to start all over again"

“It’s been so long since I made love I can’t even remember who gets tied up.”

“I am not into exercise. If God wanted me to bend over he would put diamonds on the floor”

“I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door — or I’ll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.”

 “I blame my mother for my poor sex life. All she told me was ‘the man goes on top and the woman underneath.’ For three years my husband and I slept in bunk beds.”

“The first time I see a jogger smiling, I’ll consider it.”

“People say that money is not the key to happiness, but I always figured if you have enough money, you can have a key made.”

“It’s obvious that women are smarter than men. Think about it – diamonds are a girl’s best friend; man’s best friend is a dog.”

Hi Jack

Just girding my loins for a busy morning on Fracture Clinic.  I thought I'd be cheeky & do a quick & easy rebus following Mike's idea.

It's an episode from another well loved British sitcom.

#3 9 (#4 + #5) #3

THE

         

Getting busy now - I'm very popular >:D

My last rebus (Waldorf Salad) was a bit easy-peasy-lemon squeezy.
You might find this a little more challenging.

An 1848 novel published, like those of the author's better-known sisters, under a pseudonym.
Now regarded as an early feminist classic.

five words, including 'the' and 'of', which are not pictured. 3/6/2/8/4

picture 1 is singular
You will need to lose the last letter of the surname of the chap in picture 2
picture 3 needs to be past tense. What he did a moment ago/
