    I enjoy doing puzzles and solving a variety called Dingbats, which are essentially manipulated words and imagery that physically resembles or imitates a phrase or saying. I have managed to solve all but one of the most recent batch given to me and it is getting rather annoying.

    I would appreciate any help in solving it and attach it below! :geek:

    Nice to be back,

    Manipulated words... so some examples with their answers are:

    Code:
     [COLOR="Red"]iRIGHTi [/COLOR]= Right between the eyes
    
    [COLOR="red"]NIM      BUS[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="red"]CUMU     LUS[/COLOR] = Broken Clouds
    
    [COLOR="red"]GGES EGSG[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="red"]GEGS SEGG[/COLOR] = Scrambled Eggs
    
    [COLOR="red"]GAG[/COLOR]
     [COLOR="red"]U[/COLOR] = Jokes on you
    
    [COLOR="red"]VASE FLY LINE[/COLOR] = Fly in the ointment
    Any help solving the above one would be greatly appreciated.

    It just seems too simple really! But if nothing better comes up I will have to go with that, thanks a lot!
