These rebuses aren’t original but I quite liked them when I first saw them so I’ll share them here. The first 2 are probably well known, but the last one is slightly more challenging.

  1. abcdefghijklmnopqstuvwxyz

  2. hijklmno

  3. enter image description here

*Note that none of the images belong to me.

    $\begingroup$ Has a rebus trend started while I've been away? Can't say I'm not pleased about it! $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Apr 5 '16 at 20:08

    $\begingroup$ I like to keep a folder for puzzle ideas/nice puzzles - and to be honest, rebuses are easier to come up with than other ones in my opinion. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 5 '16 at 20:09

For number 1, it's

'R' Gone -- Argon

Number 3 is

Car Bonnet -- Carbon

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Correct. Just the last one to go. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 5 '16 at 20:14
  • $\begingroup$ Nice one. I'll accept yours, as number 3 was supposed to be the most challenging. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 5 '16 at 20:28

    $\begingroup$ Another one - if letter x was missing it could be en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NOx $\endgroup$ – Tom Apr 6 '16 at 9:32

For number 2, it's

Water - "h" to "o" = $H_2O$.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Correct. Just the last one to go. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 5 '16 at 20:14

For number 3, I believe it's

bon

Because

bonnet - net = bon

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ I don't think bon relates to chemistry in any way. But I've a feeling you might be the first one to get the hardest one before any of the others. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 5 '16 at 20:09
  • $\begingroup$ @QuestionAsker has it something to do with ions and their 'Net' electric charges? $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Apr 5 '16 at 20:11
  • $\begingroup$ No, I'm afraid. Note that I am not very good at chemistry, but still can appreciate these rebuses. :) $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 5 '16 at 20:12
  • $\begingroup$ Ok thanks, thought that might be a bit hard but now that's the only thing I can think of when I look at the net $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Apr 5 '16 at 20:13
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, I was stuck on that one for a while. $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Apr 5 '16 at 20:16
