# Four Fun-derful Rebuses

This is an entry to the Fortnightly Topic Challenge #26: .

I've created a new kind of rebus for you!
Let's try one together. An easy one, too:

How simple, how simple! But come on, you're smarter
than that. How 'bout one a little bit harder:

Now that's more like it! A bit of a puzzle.
Now here's a third that is sure to confuzzle:

Well, now that you've solved that, you think you're the best?
Then come take a crack at the ultimate test:

With pictures, and puzzles, and poems et al.

• Do colors matter or the content is enough? – Techidiot Feb 11 '17 at 3:07
• @Techidiot the colors are intentional. – Bailey M Feb 11 '17 at 7:52

The rebuses work by

making use of the hexcodes for each colour.

Rebus 1 is

GUN in #beebee, giving BB GUN.

Rebus 2 is

X in #ceeded, giving EXCEEDED.

Rebus 3 is

CK in #feedba arranged in a cycle, giving FEEDBACK LOOP.

Rebus 4 is

SUC in #ceeded then ISA in #be11a1 giving SUCCEEDED ISABELLA I. The successor of Isabella I of Castille appears to be JOANNA (of Castille).

As a side note, amusingly @Walt in chat thought that the first rebus looked like GUN in powder blue, which would have given GUNPOWDER had it been correct.

• How the heck is #1 the easiest? What's a BB gun anyway? – Rand al'Thor Feb 11 '17 at 17:02
• Still a bit unconvinced by my answer for #4, but we'll see when OP confirms/denies. – Sp3000 Feb 11 '17 at 17:09
• @randal'thor a gun that shoots little pellets instead of bullets iirc – user58 Feb 11 '17 at 18:34
• This is all correct - my intended answer for #4 was "Succeeded BY", but there's no real way to interpret one over the other and I knew it was a coin flip when posting it! – Bailey M Feb 11 '17 at 19:30
• @randal'thor my mistake - BB guns are something very common where I'm from. It didn't even cross my mind that it could be a localized product! – Bailey M Feb 11 '17 at 19:31
