Hi Pen,

It is Paul Simon’s 80th Birthday today.  Just thought you would like to know that.

These are Blue’s latest dad jokes:
  • Bread is like the sun.  It rises in the yeast and sets in the waist.
  • In the corn maze, I felt I was being stalked.  It was earie
  • Cow farts come from the dairy air.




I wonder if we could ask the birthday boy to sing this for us?

#6   4   8(#4  #4  #2)   #5



 
Picture 2.  If you don’t know what it is, ask a homebrewer.
Picture 4.  Not the man

Hi Jack

Think I'm in for another busy morning.  It's not too bad at the moment - the lull before the storm! 

I loved your cartoons - especially the second & third one :laugh:  They really tickled me!

My simple little rebus is an album by the birthday boy :)
9 (#5 + #4)



            

It's getting busy & very noisy so I shall love you & leave you!

Hi Pen,

47 mm rain (a spit under 2 inches) overnight.  A little Donner and Blitzen but not enough to drive you to the room under the stairs.  I think the wet and storm season has begun.

Blue used to say, as one door closes another one opens. Wonderful man. Lousy cabinet maker.

Weight loss pills were stolen last night. Police said the suspects are still at large.  Blue was worried they would scale down the search.

Blue thinks people that are so obsessed with pumpkin-this and pumpkin-that are out of their gourds.

Blue told me some sea birds discovered a marijuana stash on the beach. Curious, they gobbled it up. Lifeguards are investigating. So far they’ve found no tern unstoned.




I’ll try to think of a challenging rebus later but this is a sitter to go on with – a 1980s fantasy comedy movie.

Hi Pen,
I didn’t come up with anything really challenging but this may keep you thinking for a couple of minutes.  An idiom about unfairly targeting someone's weakness or vulnerability.

#7  5  3  #4




Definite article not pictured

Top Picture.  Three words.  For the rebus, ditch the first two words: a man’s surname. Make the third-word singular. Zoe will eat this one.

Bottom Picture.  Ditch the first letter.

Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

Having another very busy day. Very glad it's Friday tomorrow :)  I've sorted out your earlier rebus but have stared at the last one for two minutes & am a bit stumped :laugh:

Here's a quick & simple little rebus.  It's a film from the 1980's.

12 (#5 + #7)


Character on the right on the second picture.

         

Leave you with a small random assortment.

Hi Jack

I've had a busy but enjoyable day today & am out for dinner this evening with my work friends. Very much looking forward to it :) Thought I'd pop in & do a quick post while I was enjoying a nice cuppa.

A simple rebus which is a film from 2005.  Two of my favourite characters :)

#3 #5 #2 #3 #4 #6
THETHE
Please lose the last letter of the second picture & change the first letter of the third picture.
Hope I haven't used it before - apologies if I have.

          

There was a young Scottish boy called Angus who decided to try life in Australia. He found an apartment in Brisbane and settled in.
After a week or two, his mother called from Aberdeen to see how her son was doing in his new life.
'I'm fine, ' Angus said. 'But there are some really strange people living in these flats. One woman cries all day long, another lies on her floor moaning, and there is a guy next door to me who bangs his head on the wall all the time.'
'Well, ma laddie,' says his mother, 'I suggest you don't associate with people like that.'
'Oh,' says Angus, 'I don't, Maw, I don't. No, I just stay inside my apartment all day and night, playing my bagpipes.'

I'd better go & ransack my wardrobe & see if I can find something presentable to wear this evening :laugh:

Hi Pen,
Your rebus will make a NZ forumite happy.  She is an obvious fan of your characters.




I hope you had a great dinner.

I’ll try to think of a challenging rebus later but now I need some sleep.  I’ll leave you with this caution:


Cheers, Jack

Hi Pen,

Blue asked me, “what starts with “w” and ends with “t”?”   I told him, “Yes, it  does.

He told me you know you’re getting old when you try to catch your second wind, but break it instead!

Blue claims that you are either born with the ability to tell jokes or you are not - it is all in the delivery!

Back in the day, Sheila applied to become a nurse.  On the entrance exam she was sure she got one question right.  The question was “Rearrange the Letters PNEIS to form a human body part that is most useful when erect.  Those that answered  SPINE are nurses today while Sheila is married to Blue



My Rebus is in two parts.  A series  of books published in the 1980s and the first book in the series.  The indefinite article is not pictured in either part.

The Series: 3  11(#7  #4)  2  #3

of
Picture 1.  Either one
Pictures 2&3. The clue is the surname

The Book:  3  11(#4  #7)


Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

We've just been out for a walk & it's not a bad day in spite of the dire forecast from the Met Office!

I've sussed bits of your rebuses but can't seem to put it all together!

My rebus is a film from the 1940's.

8 (#4 + #4) #2 8 (#3 + #3 + #1)

TO
Please lose the last letter of the third picture.
I thought I'd used this before but I searched & couldn't spot it.  Fingers crossed!

         

Going to have another wrestle with your rebus ;D

Hi Pen,

You had used it before.  It is difficult to check for rebuses.  I had to search my past spoiler alerts on Dropbox to find it.  Anyway it is a good one and worth repeating.  It will save me some.work when I do my spoiler alerts later.


My rebus is a classic film from 1949.  Hoping I'm not repeating myself!
8 (#4 + #4) #2 7 (#3 + #3 = #1)

TO
First 3 letters of picture three please.

Cheers, Jack

Hi Pen,
Blue takes a lot of sickies off work. I wondered why he only seemed to be sick on weekdays.  His explanation is that it must be his weekend immune system.

Blue had a long-term ambition of acting in the local repertory.  They finally gave him a role in a play carrying a drill.  It was a bit part.  I told him if he doesn’t screw it up, his next role might be a drill sergeant.

Blue reckons a lot of proverbs and idioms are past their use-by date and need to be updated.  Here are some of his suggestions
  • A stitch in time saves a wardrobe malfunction.
  • Don't judge a book by its download speed.
  • Fortune favours the entitled.
  • Where there's a will, there's a probate.
  • Spare the rod and ruin the fishing trip.
  • Still waters grow algae.
  • When the going gets tough, put it in 4-wheel drive.
  • To err is human. To keep doing it is stupid.
  • Arguing with a stupid person proves there are two of you.
  • He who laughs last didn't get the joke.
  • A journey of a 1000 miles may start with a single step, but you'll get there faster if you fly.
  • Money can't buy happiness, but neither does poverty.



 

 

I must go and do a few chores.  If I don't wear myself out I'll try to think of a rebus.

If anyone has a good idea for a rebus but don't know how to construct it, send me a private message and I will put it together - with due acknowledgement, of course.
Cheers, Jack
