Rebus Fun!



A rebus is a kind of word puzzle that uses pictures to represent words or parts of words. Rebus also refers to the use of pictograms to represent a syllabic sound. Basically turning a pictogram into a phonogram. This become really popular in the 18th century and continued into the 19th century.

Here Lucky Lager used them under bottle caps. As did other beer brands. All found from JokeyLibrary.net and Beach Packaging Design Blog.

Example:

"Its out of the question"
