 Just what is a rebus anyhow?  It is a puzzling note or short message that uses pictures with numbers, letters and
 as few words as possible. Humor and puns are common elements in a rebus, but some have serious messages.
  To read it, one must first “solve the puzzle!”  
 A well-known, simple example is this one that says message “I Love You!”
