## Rebus Redux

I recently received an email from Akram in Lebanon who saw the Rebus Quiz on the MJ4MF website and suggested the following rebus:

ENTURY

The answer is below, but I’ll give you two hints.

The first is that you might say the same thing to a calculus student who spent 4 hours completing an integration problem only to forget the constant.

The second hint is that Akram’s suggested rebus reminds me of this one, which you may have seen before and is very appropriate for the holidays:

ABCDEFGHIJKMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

The answer to this one is below, also.

But Akram’s email convinced me that it was time to create a few more, so here are five all-new rebuses (or is that rebi?) for you to enjoy.

 1 2 3 4 5

To put a little space between the rebuses and the answers below, here’s one more rebus from Sandy Wood:

solution at Brain Games from Mental Floss

ENTURY: Long time, no C (see)

ABCDEFGHIJKMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ: No L (noel)

1. A + 6 backwards = AXIS
2. SINE + double U = SINEW
3. ONION + PI in the middle = OPINION
4. Dr. OZ + ONE = OZONE
5. STUN + TWO + MAN = STUNTWOMAN

I once had a teacher tell me, “I’m like the Army. Zero tolerance. Either a student gets the whole thing right, or it’s wrong.” I’m not that strict. Half-credit to you, sir!
