I've made rebuses #1-4 below, presumably from easiest to hardest. What phrase is each trying to say? First to solve all four gets the check mark!

#1

Heart

#2
Letters

#3
Duff

#4
Sofa

Note: the phrases are unrelated.

    $\begingroup$ I had "unusually fine legs" for 2, but I guess yours works too ;-) $\endgroup$

1 is obviously

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT

2 is (thanks @Rand al'Thor)

MIXED FEELINGS

3 is to

FALL ON DEAF EARS

4 I'm unsure, but the rest I'm confident of.

  • $\begingroup$ 4 could be something to do with "seat belt", considering a beltway/highway as a "belt" $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Oh so that's what those things are in #1! I couldn't make them out. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 3, 2020 at 17:51
  • $\begingroup$ You're a shoo-in for the check mark, just one more to go! (I really should've posted these separately - assigning the check is hard when multiple people help. I'll post one at a time next time.) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Whoever gets #4 deserves the checkmark because it's miles tougher than all the others :P I admit defeat $\endgroup$

Solution to #2 is

MIXED FEELINGS.

Solution to #1 might be

THIRD WHEEL, although I'm not convinced.

2.

mixed feelings (word "feelings" mixed up)

3.

Afraid of falls (afraid-Duff under pictures of Fall)

4.

unsituated (un-seat-way-dot)

My guess for #4

NOT SO FAR OUT (NOT+SOFA+ROUT(E), dot acts like a comma, meaning "remove last letter of the word").

$\endgroup$
1
  • $\begingroup$ So close! It's not rot13(ebhgr) and the dot means something else $\endgroup$
