If you’re dense, Marilyn, I’m an ignoromnibus (I think that may be a POGO word but not sure—at any rate, it’s not original w/me) bcs not only couldn’t I figure out what the rebus meant, but now that The Other Gary has explained it, I understand why I couldn’t figure it out: I’ve never heard/read the expression “pound sand.” And I’m a “War Baby,” so that comes from my era.
Take heart, my friend. You’re not alone in having been puzzled.
Make it a splendiferous day!

I must be dense. I was trying to figure that out, too.
