I love rebuses! Is there a webpage or book that has tons of them? I've googled, but have come up short.

Get yourself a six-pack of Mickey's Malt Liquor! There's one under every cap!

(I'm pretty sure I've had some other brews that do this too - maybe Magic Hat?)

There's a Canadian show called "Crashbox" that uses them in their wonderful series.

The US TV game show Concentration featured rebuses.

"Everything's a Puzzle," published in 1953 by Unicorn Books, is a book with delightful old-school rebuses, and available pretty cheaply.

Lionshead, a light lager from around the Philly area, has these too. That was how we used to gauge drunkness back in college - if you couldn't solve the rebus on the cap, you didnt get to drink the beer.

"Everything's A Puzzle" is indeed available really cheaply ($0.83 + shipping on Amazon!) as carrienation mentions; it's also available for borrowing at the Internet Archive (free login required).

Is Scrabble Rebus of any interest?

Searching Amazon's "Humor & Entertainment" category for "rebus" seems to offer plenty of choices, but I can't vouch personally for any of them.
