Hi Pen,

Blue got a job as a security guard.  One of the office car parks he looked after was badly lit and often used by staff for a bit of nooky.

On one of his patrols he confronts a couple in a car, "What you doing, lady?"  The woman says "We're doing the rhumba."

He confronts the next couple. The woman says, "We doing the cha cha cha."

He says sarcastically to the woman in the third car, "I suppose you doing the bossa nova!" "No love, I'm doing the boss a favour."


 

 


My rebus for today is a 1980s American historical crime thriller film that is loosely based on the murder investigation of three civil rights workers in the 1960s.

11(#7  #4)   #7

   

Picture 1.  Relationship of the one in front to the one behind.


I’ll leave you with a thought. What did one paradigm say to the other paradigm?
Shift happens.


Cheers, Jack

A BBC trilogy which ran from 1990-1995.

Another excellent series which I'd completely forgotten about Mike!

Hi Jack

You really are cooking on gas at the moment!  Another cracking post & rebus ;)  I read it while I was enjoying my morning cuppa & it made me laugh out loud :laugh:

My rebus is a 1970's TV drama based on a book published in the 19th century.

#3 #5 #2 12 (#4 + #2 #6)

THEOF
Please change one letter of the first picture.

         

I went to lunch with a champion chess player…
It took him 8 minutes to pass me the salt!

I've started telling everyone about the benefits of eating dried grapes…
It's all about raisin awareness!

There were 79 unprovoked shark attacks last year. Unprovoked... do we really need that word in there? Are there people actually provoking sharks? Is there some daft idiot from Sydney in the water shouting "Hey shark, you bloody looking at me? You got a problem or something? I've got something for you to bite right here!"

It's been raining all day & it's finally stopped so I'm going to venture out before it starts again!

A quick change of plan - the rebus that I had planned for today was the same as Pen's.
I think this is the second time that this has happened.
Great minds do indeed think alike.

So, time to bring on the substitute - a 1937 novella, an American classic which has been filmed several times and turned into an opera,

The rebus is in two parts - the name of the novella and the name of the author

(1) - the novella = four words - 2/4/3/3; (2) - the author - two words - 4/9

picture 1 - cut the first and last letter
picture 3 - cut the first letter

Hi Pen,

Blue was driving a truck loaded with thousands of copies of Roget's Thesaurus to James Cook University in Townsville yesterday when he failed to take a corner in North Brisbane and crashed, spilling the books all over the road.

According to the Courier-Mail, witnesses were stunned, startled, aghast, taken aback, stupefied, confused, punchy, shocked, rattled, paralysed, dazed, bewildered, mixed up, surprised, awed, dumbfounded, flabbergasted, astounded, amazed, confounded, astonished, boggled,  overwhelmed, horrified, numbed, and perplexed.  Blue was unhurt and when asked his word for it, said, “Bugger”.

Blue is a bit of a clown. He asked me who paid for the last supper and did they leave a tip.

When he was courting Sheila, they were both into archery. For her birthday, Blue made a container for her arrows. He claims that of all the men she had dated, he was the first to make her quiver.

     

Snap.  Mike’s rebus today was on my reserve list.  No worries - I couldn’t have presented it with the same panache and it has given me an idea for my rebus. It is one of series of American live action/computer-animated family comedy films loosely based on the 1945 novel of the same name as the first in the series.
 
6(#3  #3)  6(#3  #3)  #1: #4  #2 3  #4

  :   
Conceptionally one line.  The definite article is not pictured.
Picture 2.  You are not interested in the subject of the painting.
Picture 3.  Past tense.
Picture 5. A numeral, not a letter.
Picture 7.  Ditch the last letter.
Picture 8. The adjective used to describe this gunfighter who held the first “dead man’s hand”


extended until 4.00 pm Sunday.

G'day Jack, i did like the Blue joke but i am not sure if you & Pen are aware of just how popular & well known Blue is.
My mate Fred recently told me about when he had spent some time with Blue in Canberra.

EVERYBODY KNOWS BLUE

Blue takes Fred for a walk into town to show him around.
"Hey Blue!" one woman said in passing.
"Lovely day, isn't it Blue?" said the next man that passed.
After the third and fourth person to pass had all greeted Blue, Fred felt compelled to say something.
"You sure seem to know a lot of people Blue" said Fred.
"Everyone knows me." said Blue.
Fred laughs. "Everyone? Hah, not everyone can know you!" Fred says with a chuckle.
"Really, i'll show you" Blue says confidently.
They make their way to the mayor's house. Upon arrival the doors open wide and the mayor steps out.
"Blue!" the mayor exclaims enthusiastically, it's great to see you.
"I don't believe it!" says Fred "The mayor must know lots of people though."
"Okay... Cmon" says Blue.
Blue then takes Fred to Parliament House. The security guards and secret service agents simply nod and step to the side for Blue. Fred is in disbelief. Blue and Fred walk straight into parliament. Fred's jaw gapes as he sets eyes upon the prime minister!
"Blue! What's new?" says the prime minister.
"Okay, this is impressive, but not EVERYBODY can know you Blue," says Fred.
Honestly mate, everybody does know Blue, i'm going to Italy next week, why don't you come along.
So Blue and Fred Fly to Italy and head directly for the Vatican. Standing outside of the Vatican a huge crowd begins to form.
"Wait here," Blue says.
Moments later, Blue emerges on the balcony of the Vatican with none other than the Pope! The crowd begins cheering loudly!
Looking off the balcony, Blue could see that Fred had fainted. Blue quickly rushed to him. Blue arrived at Fred's side just as he was regaining consciousness.
"I guess you were pretty shocked that the Pope knows me!" said Blue.
"It wasn't that..." said Fred, "when you two came out on the balcony, i heard the bloke behind me say 'who is that with Blue?'"

G'day Pen, if you are looking for a new source to keep pace with Jack, may i suggest revisiting the " Forumites changing light bulbs " thread.
loofa cost me a rosette in yesterday's standard game so i immediately considered a challenge but when i did the mandatory search, it landed me in the middle of the above mentioned thread.
They may be well over 10 years old but the posts of Pat, Birdy & many others are just hilarious & well worth re - using.

I tried to copy the link but buggered it up somehow so if you just type loofa into the forum search, it will take you to the page that i am referring to.

G'day Jack

It's Monday again already & it's busy already!  I've taken a couple of days off this week - tomorrow & Thursday :)  I'm going to Trent Bridge on Friday.  The third day of the India test.  Unfortunately, the forecast is for showers so a brolly will be required :-R

I'm going to be lagging behind you & Mike this morning rebus wise!  Mine's quite simple by comparison.  So simple in fact I'm not sure you need any clues >:D

7 (#3 + #3) #2 #3 5 (#2 + #2 +#1)

THEA

I've played a bit fast & loose with the golfer as I'm sure he never shortens his name!  Please remove the last letter from picture three.

         

My post is like me this morning...
short & slightly grumpy ;D
