  • Both of the above must be correct

Hint #1: They are all cliches.

  • $\begingroup$ @TheDragonista Why not? It's often been done before. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Feb 27 '15 at 9:14
  • $\begingroup$ @randal'thor I was confused because the question clearly states "You must answer each one" $\endgroup$ – The Dragonista Feb 27 '15 at 9:22

    $\begingroup$ @TheDragonista (I didn't DV, but) how can you tell it's an excellent collection of rebuses until the answers are published? Of the 3 solved so far, one was obvious and the other two were wild stabs in the dark not really expecting to be correct. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Mar 2 '15 at 17:49

Some of these answers are a bit jokey, but then warspyking is jokey, so who knows - they might be right!

  • $\begingroup$ bets, all4114, knightleg are correct. $\endgroup$ – warspyking Feb 27 '15 at 9:31
  • $\begingroup$ @warspyking Really? Knightleg was more like a joke, and bets just a guess! Can you edit my answer to explain the bets one better? $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Feb 27 '15 at 9:34
  • $\begingroup$ Still no. ${}{}$ $\endgroup$ – warspyking Feb 27 '15 at 15:01
  • $\begingroup$ Good, the first one is correct. (Above-board) $\endgroup$ – warspyking Mar 2 '15 at 17:58
  • $\begingroup$ Quite alright. Now you just need to figure out the last 2. Remember, they are cliches! $\endgroup$ – warspyking Mar 2 '15 at 18:02
