# Rebuses are so cliché

Here's a good puzzle to end the day with. See if you can figure out what the image sequence is telling you.

# 1

The first picture has to do with the 24th nickname, though it's not official, or anything.

# 2

The third image refers to a place - but not a specific place.

• Technically speaking this phrase is not required to be gender-specific, but for the case of this puzzle, please pretend that it is. – Khale_Kitha Mar 16 '16 at 0:46
• Gotta say, the layout's color and shape transitions solve some puzzles familiar to artists – humn Mar 16 '16 at 1:33
• @question_asker I just mean that the cliché could be specified with a different middle word, but in the case of the puzzle, I'm requiring a specific one. – Khale_Kitha Mar 16 '16 at 12:09
• No correct answers as of the time of this posting. Great tries, guys! Some hints: The first picture is less about the arch and more about where that arch can be found. The third picture is something more general - something great. – Khale_Kitha Mar 16 '16 at 12:14
• I for one would love to see a dang ol hint – question_asker Mar 17 '16 at 17:27

The first picture is

The St. Louis Arch, in Missouri, the Show-Me State

The second picture is

Not her, but him

The third picture is

The great outdoors, or simply out

The rebus could be

Show him out (i.e., point a man toward the door, so that he leaves)

• Nice =D. This puzzle was less transparent than I originally hoped. Oops. – Khale_Kitha Mar 17 '16 at 18:58

My theory:

Overarching his view.

Breakdown:

Overarching: an arch over, his: not a woman, view: a picture of a spectacular vista.

• A decent guess, but I can't say I've ever heard anyone say it, before. – Khale_Kitha Mar 17 '16 at 3:25

The path underneath this beautiful blue arch is not accessible for women.

• Haha, nice try =D – Khale_Kitha Mar 15 '16 at 22:33

Archman is a town in south-western Turkmenistan. Archman lies in the Ahal Province on the northern rim of the Kopet Dag mountain range.
The first picture shows an arch.
The second picture shows not a woman meaning man
The third picturen shows a picture of the suroundings of town Archman

The Bob Marley song: No Woman, No Cry

because

Missouri = Misery
No Woman

• The song to which you are referring is actually "No Woman, Nuh Cry", which is an address to a woman urging her to not cry. "no, woman: don't cry". – Ian MacDonald Mar 16 '16 at 20:53
• @IanMacDonald I've never seen it as "nuh" – question_asker Mar 17 '16 at 12:45
• @question_asker It is not written as "nuh"; it is said as "nuh". You are free to use google. – Ian MacDonald Mar 17 '16 at 12:51
• @IanMacDonald Oh, no, I just thought you were miscorrecting them on the title. – question_asker Mar 17 '16 at 12:54
• @question_asker Just on the meaning behind the title; the explanation doesn't fit when the title is interpreted correctly. – Ian MacDonald Mar 17 '16 at 13:03

Is it:

The gateway to no-(wo)man's land

Explanation:

The Arch is sometimes called the gateway to the west.
The second picture was listed as gender unspecific, but was looking for a gender specific answer.
The third picture was hinted at being a simple answer
Possible coincidence, but there's a startrek GATEWAYs book called NO MANS LAND.

Worth a shot.

• Nice try, though this one made me laugh. Let's see if I can add a hint =D – Khale_Kitha Mar 17 '16 at 17:31
• Haha. Yah. It needs a small one. I'm sure if you make a simple one it'll be enough to point people in the right direction. @Khale_Kitha – Z. Dailey Mar 17 '16 at 17:35
