Weekly puzzle #1
2007-12-18 22:12
by Bob Timmermann

In a compromise to satisfy the people who liked them and the people who hated them (I really don't care about people who had no opinion about them), there will be one rebus puzzle per week. Unless otherwise specified, the puzzles will have a baseball theme. The answer will not be provided with the puzzle.

Really, I'm just looking to be the first one to post since

a) I can never get these right and
b) this is one of the sites I'm always checking for new posts.

The first picture is, I think, Notre Dame Cathedral.

The second pictures is an abacus.

The third picture is the letter Y on wheels.

So... Juan Pierre got traded to the White Sox.

I got the same things for the second and third pics as Suffering Bruin did. The first may be Venice since is looks like a flooded Rennesance town. Or it might just be flood (like Curt Flood). The abacus' value is 726070200. I have no idea.

Okay, the first picture is not Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. But that second picture is an abacus and that third picture is the letter Y.

This is the most I've been able to figure out in any of your puzzles. I'm on a roll.

Is the first picture Boldt Castle?

If I guess Val Pascucci (who was signed by the Phillies) and turn out to be correct, my brain might explode. V Abacus Y

But I kept trying to see what I could do with chateau and Chad Paronto.

______ add Wise.

I know the correct answer because I looked it up but I'll refrain from posting it to give others a chance to figure it out.

Good to see the rebi back, Bob.

I think I know it.

For the record, the plural of 'rebus' isn't 'rebi'. In Latin, 'rebus' is already plural. (It's the ablative or dative plural of 'res'. So it sort of means, 'by things' or 'to things'.)

9 How did you look it up?

There's more than one "Y" in that picture. I didn't notice that last night. I feel very dim for not noticing.

Okay, gang, what does the first photo have to do with the Mets?

Well, I'm happy to do the easy part. The first picture is of a church in Metz.

I swear I had this before Bob gave the answer!

12 That was the easy part? I gotta start getting out more.

10 For the record, I know that. I just find plurals using the letter i to be funny so I use them whenever possible, correctly or otherwise. Yes, I'm easily amused. ;)

11 I figured out the "add Wise" part, then checked recent transactions to see who the team was. I never would have known the name of that castle.

4 I thought that at first too, but then I remembered Heart Island isn't nearly that close to the shore.

17 I especially like "boni" as the plural of "bonus." Puer aeternus that I am, it still makes me giggle.
