#27 Rebus puzzle

More rebus fun! NEW: Since there can be more than one solution for these puzzles, I am now giving the number of words and the number of letters in each word of the answer. This information will be on the line under the rebus. For example: 5, 3 will mean the answer has two words, with five letters in the first word and three in the second.

Closing dates

When I first started this site, I gave each puzzle a week before it closed while players discovered the site. Now that there are regular players, I changed it to the original goal, with each puzzle closing after just one day.

Meanwhile, the posting dates and times are based on UTC. Since I strive for midnight, that means the evening before for American players. For example, in Central Daylight Time, midnight UTC is at 7:00 p.m. So right now, a puzzle is posted at or shortly after 7:00 p.m. CDT, then closes at or shortly after 7:00 p.m. the next night.

But these dates and times are meant to make the game more fun for you, the players. Would you rather do different dates/times? It would be no difficulty to leave puzzles up for 36 hours, for example. Thus they would go up at midnight UTC (7:00 p.m. CDT), then close at noon UTC (7:00 a.m.) the following day.

Leave your opinions and feedback about these changes! I read and publish every comment, even though they are moderated. (For technical reasons, I cannot un-moderate comments for just one post.)
