I have made a riddle that incorporates some rebus aspects. Hope you enjoy it!



It's pretty hard to find the solution to this.


Are you looking for a

needle in a haystack

Explanations - thanks due to Marius! - as the rebus may read like

'Need L in A Hey Stack' - from below:

Initial letter A = A
A-Z missing L = Need L (in above A and below heh stack)
SE-E = StackExchange - Exchange = Stack

Hint: It's pretty hard to find the solution to this.

This answer is a well known idiom.

  • $\begingroup$ Good job! I was going for hey as the interjection, but everything is perfect :) The hint was to mean it's hard to find the solution so it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. $\endgroup$ – G_as_in_Gnome Mar 30 '17 at 14:54
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @G_as_in_Gnome for this and I updated heh to hey as it fits more nicely. $\endgroup$ – Tom Mar 30 '17 at 15:09

Splitting the letters for a better view
The L is missing.
So it could be something like ANOL then an interjection like yey or oh or something else. And SE-E = S.

  • $\begingroup$ Definitely on the right track :) $\endgroup$ – G_as_in_Gnome Mar 30 '17 at 8:18
  • $\begingroup$ INTERJECTION + SE-E = INTERJECTION+S = INTERJECTIONS? Mutiple of them? $\endgroup$ – Matthew Roh Mar 30 '17 at 13:52

Is it

SE-E refers to stack exchange emacs .

Just read from google what is it

Emacs /ˈiːmæks/ and its derivatives are a family of text editors that are characterized by their extensibility. The manual for the most widely used variant, GNU Emacs, describes it as "the extensible, customizable, self-documenting, real-time display editor".

It is editor , so you are using it type alphabets in it ??

  • $\begingroup$ Nope that's not it. $\endgroup$ – G_as_in_Gnome Mar 30 '17 at 7:25
