The confection in the clues has a lot of different names. Nobody yet has hit on the name of that confection that will solve this rebus. The name I refer to shows up on Google if you search “jelly (or jam) donut”.
You were sooooo close though.
@JimInOz has answered my”simple”rebus. In a PM he disclosed that, on a cooking site, he discovered that the pastry confection in the clues is called by many different names. One of them is “Bismarck”. It was on May 26 and/or the 27th, 82 years ago, that the German battleship Bismarck sank. The story differs from source to source. One story is that it was so badly damaged in battle that it sank. Another story is that it was badly damaged, but still afloat. The German navy scuttled it. It lies in water three times farther down than Titanic. Well done, @JimInOz .
I thought I had given enough hints that the solving this rebus would not have taken over 48-hours! I had no idea that this would have been perhaps my toughest rebus yet! @JimInOz was very close when he uploaded this answer. The Bismarck is also called a Berliner.
I thought a Bismarck was another name for a maple bar, a long doughnut with a maple glaze. Wikipedia agrees:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Map...also known,Maple-Creamstick or maple Bismarck.
It must be a regional difference. I mistakenly made a really difficult rebus puzzle once because I didn't realize Lucky Lager was a regional beer.
I blame the doughnuts - I couldn’t shake the mental image of those sweet, creamy things. It was like I was caught in the Deathstar’s tractor beam.
Best guess, a place, the Berlin, Kitchene
The information re: bismarck is readily available on Google, and in some sites that feature synonyms. If the term Bismarck as applied to a type of jelly donut has a regional component, that sort of thing happens regularly on this message board.
Should be a simple one. See if you can get it without any clues.
Like all of your "simple" ones, I'm stumped.
This is all I've got.
Have to go out, see what happens when I get back.
WOW! That was quick! It is also correct! Nipper is the name given to the dog in the RCA Victor trade mark “His Master’s Voice”.
I'll try to loosen the lid for someone else?
Taz the Tasmanian Devil less than ???
@wagudc . You got it! The one clue is the Devil’s Hole in Death Valley National Park in Nevada. The < symbol tells you to subtract the Hole part. So you get Taz the Tasmanian Devil.
Since 19 August 1662?
Continuing the thread.
Separate names with a comma.
