Rebus and Brett's Monthly . . .


Rebus (Plural: Rebuses? Rebusii? Rebusem?)

A rebus is a picture representation of a name, work, or phrase. Sort of like a visual cryptic crossword, in some ways.  By the way, I hate puzzles, crosswords and brainteasers.

Following are some rebus puzzles to tackle, answers are at the end of this item. By way of example: 

The answer to the above rebus is “Head over heels”. 

Your turn: 


Space invaders 
Growing economy 
Life begins at 40 
Missing you (U) 
Forgive and forget 
Split level 
Head for cover 
Red in the face 
Corporate downsizing 
Win with ease 
Try to understand 
On cloud nine 
In between jobs 


Fishin(g) for compliments 
Third time lucky 
Four leaf clover 
There is no I in TEAM 
An inside job 
i <3 u  (I can't be bothered working this out, someone explain it to me).

Some repetition in the following:


Seven seas 
Split level 
Forgive and forget 
Missing you 
Lucky break 
He’s beside himself 
Seethrough blouse 
First aid 
The West Indies 
Six feet underground 
Backward glance 
Reading between the line 
Three degrees below zero 
Neon lights 
Just between you and me 
One in a million 
Broken promise 
You’re out of touch 
Life begins at 40 
Growing economy 
Up before eight 
Just around the corner 
Apple pie 
Making up for lost time 
Standing ovation 
I understand you undertake to undermine my undertaking
