I just remembered what a rebus was

Don’t you hate it when you can’t remember the exact word for something? You know the definition, but not the word?

Somehow, inexplicably, I happened to pull a very obscure word that I never use out of the depths of my memory (with the aid of a computerized dictionary). Here’s the word I was looking for:

rebus n. A puzzle where you decode a message consisting of pictures representing syllables and words.

I’m redesigning my front page. The reason I wanted to find the word rebus will be obvious once the front page design is done.
