I have a special edition of the monthly mystery this month that involves a rebus, which the dictionary defines as "a representation of words in the form of pictures or symbols, often presented as a puzzle." If you've ever seen letters and pictures used to spell out a phrase (i.e. H + the picture of an ear = hear), that's one form of a rebus. Some rebuses use only words and letters, like this one:
Queen a a a a day = Queen for a day
Now here is the rebus to solve for August's mystery:
Solve the rebus and put your answer in comments to this post by midnight EST on Friday, August 16th, 2013. I'll choose one name at random from everyone who posts the correct solution and send the winner a lovely prize from Victorian Trading Co. This contest is open to everyone on the planet, so please join in.
