News, but not the serious kind
Big contest! Waste your time, win nothing!
Blog Guy, you remember a couple of times you did puzzles for your readers where photos were clues to a phrase or message?
Sure I do. That’s called a rebus.
Oh. Named after Rebus Philbin, right? Can you do another one?
Um, no, that’s REGIS Philbin. Anyway, my earlier Rebus was too easy, but here is a new one that is much harder.
All of these photos taken together suggest the lyrics to a classic rock song.
What do you mean suggest?
I mean my ability to comprehend isn’t always tip-top, my memory is feeble, and as usual, I can’t be bothered to do any research. So don’t expect perfection in the lyrics department.
So you’re talking about a feeble rebus? Is there even a word for this new kind of puzzle?
Yes, I call it a feebus.
I can’t solve it, Blog Guy.
That’s because you only looked at it for four seconds. Think about it, and I’ll give the answer tomorrow. Unless somebody guesses it right today, which isn’t very unlikely. If you want to try, you may find clues in the actual photo captions, below.
