Subject: Wacky Wordies

Written By: DoRitos on 07/16/10 at 12:57 am


All these picture puzzles say something.  I have the answers to each one of them.  Most I had to figure out on my own and about eight had the answers provided.  Each one will be numbered.  When you think you have the correct answer simply reply posting the number of the puzzle and the answer.  I'll check and score the answers periodically.  Have fun!

Your talent is only surpassed by your intellect.  Right you are on all three.  

Oops have to modify.  The blue moon anwser is correct but it is not number 17 it is number 12.  Let the record be corrected.  It is so ordained.

???   One tiny clitch - you are off with the numbers.  Half baked is number 23 not 22 and Overworked, underpaid is 24 not 23.  So 22 is still open for solving,  23 and 24 are solved.  I am sure you you got the puzzles correct just the wrong numbers.  The number at the bottom left of the puzzle is the number for that puzzle.

:(  Dagnabbit  above you solved this one.  The correct response is overworked underpaid and not underworked overpaid and the number for this puzzle is 24 not 23.  Sorry.  Again, the puzzle numbers for each puzzle are at the lower left side for each puzzle.  In the puzzle worked is on top so it is over the word paid - Thus overworked and paid is under the word worked thus making it underpaid.  Sorry  :( Dagnabbit was the first and only one to have solved this one correctly.

"worked" on top = overworked and "paid" on bottom = underpaid.  Sorry  :(  Dagnabbit's response was the only correct response to puzzle number 24.

# 17  :)  -  That's the title!  Good work!

# 19  ::)  Iron is the first word  and the second word begins with a letter in the alphabet between B and H - Answer is two words.  "Iron" in this case is an adjective and not a noun.  The second word is the noun.  Hint - look at the first words you used as adjectives.  THe word your looking for is similar to one or more of those words.

# 15 - Ooooooh so close.  The phrase is five words.  Pay attention to the ones in the puzzle.  Your response is actually the last four words of the phrase.  The first word is a preposition. Technically you have it correct.  Try for that first word and if you strike out I'll give you this one and reveal the answer.  It's not all that difficult.  ;)

Round 6
Number 5

http://www.fun-with-words.com/images/rebus/r1081.gif

The official answer is "Winning Horse" but I believe that the second word in the puzzle is messed up. 

# 12 is "Hop up and down"

# 15 is "To swear black is white"  Close enough - Cha-ching!

# 18 is "Mixed Metaphor"

:)  Numbers 12, 15 and 18 have all been solved correctly. Fine work Frank!  8)

Somehow I missed that # 8 and # 14 remain unsolved.

#14: All above nothing?
Nothing above all?






 :( Sorry - Try again.

Number 14 is a one word answer.  You've got the word "All" right and in the right place.  Think outside the box.  

Number 6.  HINT: Two words.  I remember this being used as a stage name for a Hollywood actor that Jethro on the Beverly Hillbillies once met on the show.  I know, not much of a clue but anymore would give it away too easily.  Take a stab at it and I may be able to give another hint if you don't get it.

Meantime here is round 7 - 20 new puzzles.

I guess that since Frank's computer died, no one is working these rebus puzzles.  I got a PM from him several days ago saying that he is absent from the boards because his computer died and he does not have the funds available to get something done about it.  :(  So if you are missing seeing Frank out here, this is why.  Everyone who misses Frank out here should up his Karma once a day until he gets back, just to show that we missed him.

;)  Welcome back, Frank!  8)

I've sort of lost track of these.  It may take me a while to get back on track.  I know that number 4 is nearly correct, but missing two words.  Look more closely at the puzzle.  The words you did get are correct except its resolution consists of six words.  The sentence needs a subject and a predicate.  Number 2 is not even close, nor does it make much sense to me.  :( Sorry. 

I'm fairly busy right now and may not be able to keep up with this as I did before you left.  Still, it's great to see you back. No one worked them while you were gone.

I have lost track of what has been solved and what has not, however I believe this is as close as I am going to get to finding out.  So I am going to re-post what I think still needs to be solved. Frank took a shot at # 4 today but it is only half correct.  Please post anything I may have missed or anything I have here that has already been solved.

So glad that you and others have enjoyed them.  I can do a round 9 if you'd like.  Just holler at me if you do and give me a bit of time to get them out and each one posted before starting to solve them.

Maybe what you can do is set a limit at ..oh..let's say "3" at the start and see how it goes..that way someone won;t guess half of them in one shot, but it is tempting.

Yeah, just like on the Penguin Quizzes. Then after a while if there are some items still left but no guessers the limit gets increased, and eventually lifted, that way the original solvers can try for more.

Tooth is part of the word - the first part.  Two letter phrase as I believe and it's a bit hokey.  No easy solver.  In fact I should have never entered it but what the heck, one of them should drive folks buggy.
