    Today's clue: each image represents a single syllable. Rebus rules of pronunciation in effect.

    Low
    Tuss
    Ass
    Prix

    Lotus Esprit?

    I've never heard of Robitussin called just Tuss, but the rest fits...

    Correct on #3 as Lotus Esprit, @Simon. lotus_esprit_k2.jpg

    When I considered possibilities for the equivalent of "tus", it revealed variations of brand Robitussin as Apo-Tuss, Duro-Tuss, Mor Tuss, Nova-Tuss, Honitus, VI-Q-Tuss, etc. So I went with it, on the idea it's also in line with the fast and loose rules in play for Rebus.


    So the floor is yours @Simon if you have a Rebus ready or put one together.

    Or there are options to leave the floor open. Also if you have a concept and share it as a PM I could put it together as well.

    Yes, yes, and yes. Only thing I think I had different was #2 was tenner-ka but it works all the same! Must be more obtuse try harder next time. Over to whoever these go over to now...

    Nice work on those @Simon.

    @StiiredNotShaken the floor is yours, or you can open up the opportunity to the audience.

    To be honest, I haven't got the time to think of/arrange the images for one, so I'm happy to pass this off even though this is probably the only time I'll come away with the win :)) :))

    Okay let's try these. Last one solved has the floor.

    A couple disclaimers. #1 takes liberties with pronunciation. #2 can be called overly US-centric.

    I've got 1 and 3, and half of 2. Can't solve the rest though.. it's gnawing at me.

    Well advantage to the Americans on this one. I can say the first image has a shadow.

    Sounds like you're saying the CIA have the advantage, @RichardTheBruce ;)

    Maybe credit to the Canadians.

    You should probably go for it, @QBranch.

    For #2, there is a (small) written clue on the image that can assist.

    [not wood] Chuck
    [sign reads] Fair
    [Scrabble tile] L

    That's what was looked for: Canadian Admiral Chuck Farrel from GE and a clean sweep 1, 2, 3 @QBranch.

    The floor is yours when you're ready.

    Feral crossed my mind, but not Farrel. Good one Thundy.

    Not too familiar with woodchucks. Can they actually chuck wood, and if so, how much?

    Apologies in advance, but this had to happen.

    I'm having way too much fun. Not as much as Farrel, though.

    No doubt that's his ID card for the morgue. ;)

    OK, I have one:


    THE CHALLENGE:
    Guess the latest picture puzzle and its place in book or film or both.
    When confirmed as correct, either offer your own or I can add the next one.
    Concepts welcome, PM me with a description and I can put it together and host an image.

    Expect the obvious to the obscure. Repeats are fair game.

    A simple item to start follows. Scroll carefully.

    Okay. Hmm. Is it John Terry?
