My school just had a Cryptic Hunt and we were given this image:

enter image description here

We were also given a hint :

I don't want to cook anymore

We were supposed to give back a word as an answer. I wasn't able to answer it, and sadly, they didn't provide us the solution. I'm really curious, does anyone know the answer?

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling! This sort of puzzle where there is a series of pictures which lead to a word is known as a rebus. It may be quite hard to solve if you don't know the answer so there may be quite a few correct answers $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Aug 13 '16 at 14:50

    $\begingroup$ Actually, what country or active language? I think most of us seem to have assumed English, but is that really the case? It could be a rebus word game in a different language an then it becomes quite hard for English speakers to solve.... $\endgroup$ – BmyGuest Aug 14 '16 at 4:37

This possible answer came to me whilst on a bus:



rye no love - could be gluten intolerance; no love for rye (gluten is found in grains such as rye) and this would most certainly put me off cooking!


Vegetarian: because you love animals and you don't want to eat them anymore.
