    Help

    Could someone please tell me what these are called. For example if I wrote
    I'm
    you, It would mean I'm over you. Another one, Its all fun and games unt l, until someone looses an eye.
    Sometimes words are diagonal, upside down, I think you get the point. Or if anyone knows of a website that has these types of puzzles

    Please use descriptive titles for your threads, like "name of puzzle" rather than "Help"

    Re: Help

    In the UK, they're commonly known as "Dingbats". There was a board game by that name which involved the participants solving those Rebus puzzles. However, the term "dingbat" has come to be used generically for the puzzles.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
