For those who don't know, a rebus is where words are represented by a picture and you try to figure what word or phrase the picture is trying to represent.

What is the phrase above?

I think the phrase might be

Holy Water

Explanation

$H_2O$ represents water and it appears to be full of holes (hole-y)

  • $\begingroup$ For a fun time visit the beautiful Lake District in the north-west of England. You might enjoy the quaint dry stone walls frequently to be seen there. When the stones are laid at an angle to prevent water penetrating the wall, it is called a water-shot. So close... $\endgroup$ – Hugh Meyers Feb 27 at 12:00

Is it:

Watering holes (places where animals gather to drink). Lots of holes surrounded by water.

Might be a stretch, but what about:

Soda/Seltzer Water?

Because:

H2O obviously means water, but in this case it is water with bubbles in it?

The phrase is

Navy / Fleet

Explanation

The rebus shows holes in h2o, which is water. It is well known that a boat is a hole in the water, so multiple holes would mean multiple boats: either a fleet or a navy.

Another answer

without involving water: is that a stream cipher?

Because

The bubbles indicate flowing (i.e. a stream), while the "H2O" part, reading as "H to O", means "(translate) a letter to another letter", i.e. substitution cipher.

How about:

light water (opposite of heavy water)

because

the "holes" in the water remove weight.

Could it be:

Evaporating Water or Water Evaporation

As:

The rebus gives off the effect that it is disappearing or changing states.

Bubbly water? Another alternative would be airbubbles / bubbles of air

Other possible answers:

Coconut Water - Coconut-shaped cut-outs on the water

And

Can't Hold Water - The word H20 wouldn't be able to hold water because it has holes in it
