Solve this simple rebus.

enter image description here


It is quite simple and I guess it will be answered within a few minutes. :)


The answer is :

Are you ready?

Because :

Well, @MOehm already explained the R and the U faster than me so I won't do it twice (but do upvote his answer as well!). This gives us two letters. The last letter is a big E in red - red E - ready.

Hence the answer:

R - U - red E : Are you ready?

  • $\begingroup$ @MOehm The last term was the first thing I found, lol. Then I found the R, the second currency, and your answer popped up... A regular day on PSE I guess :-) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Oh, that's okay. What bugs me is that I couldn't make the mental leap from RU to "Are you". My excuse is that it's Friday and that I don't text very often. $\endgroup$

I think this may be


The top image is a South Arican RAND note, from which the shape of an AND gate has been cut, leaving R. The middle image is a URIAL sheep, from which an Iranian RIAL is subtracted, leaving U. And the bottom image is the Latin letter E.

(There may well be more to it. For example the E may be a RED E, but I can't find anything that fits. Or maybe the E stands for a third currency?)
