      WELL DONE !!!

      1. wow, I really LOVE this kind of ”pun”, because once solved, I keep in mind the british sound more easily..it’s so funny! 😀

        1. Puns are an excellent exercise in pronunciation and linguistic flexibility. Some are easy but this one is quite difficult. Have you looked at the “Punny Book” section yet? 🙂

          1. yess I have…punny books open my imagination, because as I read…I discover the hidden meaning <3, but I couldn't find this kind of ''rebus''…. that is pretty much stimulating ❤ . ❤

  2. They are the archers, the fighters the killer. Also They are subwater and can’t breathe. Departures , in Italian “partenze ” si usa anche per indicare il decesso di persone, Ok I think… DEATH or DEAD .
    If it’s wrong …. I give up !! :))

    1. Vedi! Già una chiave l’hai trovato: “archers”. Adesso pensi bene a come si dice “departures” in inglese. Prova a spezzare la parola diversamente dal solito, a cambiare un po’ il modo di accentare le sillabe…

      1. It’s very hard for me ! dEpartures , accento sulla E , dep – ar – tur- es …… archers ….. my sinapsys don’t comunicate each other 🙂
        Now I’m tired, I ‘ll think tomorrow.
        Thanks for help !
        Good Night :)))

          1. eh…. WE HAVE TO WORK on pronunciation !!!! :))) “plural maiestatis ” 😉
            Nice day !

    1. È un gioco di parole basato sulla parola “departures”. Le figure a destra sono la chiave di letture per il secondo significato. Bisogna dire la parola “departures” e pensare a cos’altro potrebbe riferirsi…

            1. No, Marcella, the word is “departures” but you need to find a ‘hidden’ meaning which corresponds to the image!
