Can you find a web site with the address www.something.com where the “something” is a thing and the home page is simply an image of that thing? No text or other images allowed.

No slashes allowed in the address.

5 points for any find that meets the criteria. Not just first.

There might not be any…

Rebus brainstorm!

who can think up rebuses for the titles of tv shows?

You don’t have to make a graphic file just tell us how to construct the rebus.

Use quotes to indicate any actual letters that appear in the rebus.

Don’t post the answers and we’ll be able to determine relative difficulty.

Examples:
“Ch” plus a picture of ears

Picture of a stop sign and picture of a pool tab

The game is called French Toast. It’s a 20 question variant. No winner or loser, just fun.
