Rebus puzzles: phrases and stories written with letters,
words and pictures combined


 Just what is a rebus anyhow?  It is a puzzling note or short message that uses 

pictures with numbers, letters and  as few words as possible. Humor and

 puns are common elements in a rebus, but some have serious messages.
  To read it, one must first “solve the puzzle!”
