Hi Mike,

Now you know why I made picture 6 bigger than the rest. I had to make the label on the clothing  readable.
Cheers, Jack

I'd always imagined it to be Deadly Nightshade, but maybe not

This is what someone has posted on Google Images as  'The sap was rising in the Sukebind'

What a wonderful performance by Arne, she knocked off the American Olympic champion to claim gold in the 400 free ... memories of the great Shane Gould.

Having a small celebration Mike!  Managed to solve your rebus but couldn't for the life of me remember who the singer is :-R  Better consult Ms Google!

G'day Jack

I have 35 minutes to do a quick rebus before lunch!

It's a hit record from the 1970's when there was some very naff stuff to be had!

6 (#2 + #4) #5 #3 #5



The first picture is a homophone.  Please use the middle name of gent in picture two & take away the last letter of the fourth picture.

          

Did it with five minutes to spare :laugh:

What-ho Pen,

I was looking for a rebus for grandparents and came across a page on the hundred best books for children. I have no doubts about the quality of the one I chose but I don’t think I would give it to my grandkids. It’s about the atrocities in WWII.

3  #3  2  3  #7  #7

   

Picture 1  past tense.    
2 definite articles  are not pictured.


P.S. THANKS MIKE.  FIXED. It’s most important to get the count right.

Hi Pen,

A bit of humour I  was too tired to find earlier

   

   
Cheers, Jack

Forgive me, Ozzyjack, but I have many doubts about the quality of that book - I thought it was dreadful with a most unconvincing narrator 😳

You are looking for the English translation of the title of a 1956 French film, described by one US critic as 'a breezy erotic drama' and given a 'C' ['condemned'] rating by the American Catholic League of Decency.
Not surprisingly, it was hugely successful wherever it was shown (often in a heavily censored version) and made the 18-year old 'BB' a superstar.

four words - 3/3/7/5

picture 2 - on the right
picture 3 - first four letters
picture 4 - first three letters
picture 5 - any one of them

I have many doubts about the quality of that book ('The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas / Pajamas') - I thought it was dreadful with a most unconvincing narrator 😳

I've not read the novel, but I have seen the film, I thought it was 'ok' and I wasn't offended by it in any way.

In general. as far as the Holocaust is concerned, I do think it very important that young people today should learn about the atrocities that took place in the death camps during World War II. Hopefully, the more people know about these places and what went on inside them, the less chance there is of such things happening again.

 I do not however, as some seem to do, believe that the list of twentieth century war crimes begins and ends with the Holocaust.,

In Cambodia, Pol Pot murdered one quarter of the population of his country, while the rest of the world looked on.
Nobody will ever know how many died in the pogroms ordered by Stalin - probably several millions
Millions died horribly during World War I - a war fought on behalf of the royal dynasties of Europe - the Hohenzollern, the Romanovs, the Hapsburgs and - not least - the Windsors.
Bosnia, Rwanda, Hiroshima  - the list goes on, and that's without even mentioning Vietnam

So, yes, people should never be allowed to forget the Holocaust; equally, they must never be allowed to forget all the atrocities  that made the twentieth century the bloodiest in history.
