    $\begingroup$ There are so many super hard puzzles on this site that fairly often I have the urge to make slightly easier puzzles to provide something for those who don't like their brains to hurt. Also, it's fun to create these rebuses. $\endgroup$ – JLee Jul 29 '15 at 20:07
  • $\begingroup$ @JLee I definitely appreciate them. It helps to have something nice and fun to take my mind off the ones that burn away at my brain cells. :) Keep up the great work! $\endgroup$ – Bailey M Jul 29 '15 at 20:08

    $\begingroup$ Very nice! What makes this rebus stand out is the imaginative choices of word pictured. Rather than giving pieces of the word, the subtractions make a word fall out unexpectedly, giving a great moment of surprise and confirmation. $\endgroup$ – xnor Jul 29 '15 at 23:20
