This is one of the many things I am bad at (amongst making up hard rebuses and thinking of creative ways to fill the character limit). What is it?

enter image description here

*Note that the hand cartoon in the image doesn't belong to me.

  • $\begingroup$ @Beastly Gerbil: Thanks. For those of you who are trying to solve this: My 'background story' is pretty bad and completely unhelpful considering the picture. Does this help? $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 6 '16 at 17:07

Based on the "simpler than that" from the comments, it could be

Throw in G $\rightarrow$ Throwing

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Close. This could've been the answer. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 6 '16 at 17:05
  • $\begingroup$ Any of the above? $\endgroup$ – question_asker Apr 6 '16 at 17:06
  • $\begingroup$ Throwing is the answer I was thinking of. Looking at things, this could've been a triple rebus. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 6 '16 at 17:07

    $\begingroup$ Wait, so there is a question_asker and a Question Asker? Looks like Question Asker should consider a name change based on the join dates. $\endgroup$ – JPhi1618 Apr 6 '16 at 20:41

    $\begingroup$ Given the nature of placement in rebuses, for this to be the correct answer, I would expect the hand-line-ball to exist within the confines of the letter. $\endgroup$ – feelinferrety Apr 6 '16 at 21:56

Is it perhaps

GAMING? $~~$(that is: G plus aiming)

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Wow that's a nice idea. If I'd thought harder, I could've perhaps made this a double rebus. Unfortunately, this meaning wasn't my intention. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 6 '16 at 16:55
  • $\begingroup$ @Gamow congrats! First puzzler to reach 30k rep $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Apr 6 '16 at 16:59
  • $\begingroup$ By the way, this rebus is actually very simple, and the answer is right in front of you. I like your answer better ^^'. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 6 '16 at 17:00

Is the answer

G pitch, looks like the hand is pitching a ball at the G, G pitch as in tuning

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nope, sorry. Simpler than that. Like I said to Gamow, the answer is right in front of you :) $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Apr 6 '16 at 17:03
  • $\begingroup$ @QuestionAsker Right in front of me is a picture of a hand throwing a ball at a G. So the answer is clearly "a picture of a hand throwing a ball at a G". :P $\endgroup$ – user253751 Apr 7 '16 at 2:55

G for gravity and the ball moving towards it...then is it gravity? But the ball is thrown upwards!!
