    why does OBE mean Honor ???

    In UK, OBE = Officer of the Order of the British Empire. (It is one of the honours that might be
    bestowed on a citizen, e.g. in the New Year's Honours list.)

    2. why are Rebus puzzles called [Dingbats] in the UK?

    is there a good explanation for it, or is it just historical?
