In the new set, the first one is a microphone, and the last is a shotgun shell.

Nope, strike number one.

No holes - that makes it a thimble.

The fifth one is a newspaper vending machine.

My friend from Sicily was amazed by newspaper vending machines here. He couldn't believe that when you opened it, you could grab ALL the papers. I explained to him it's based on the honor system, you just take one paper and then shut it. He said that would never work in Sicily. If someone there put their quarter in and the door opened and there was a stack of papers, they would take the entire stack because if they weren't supposed to take them, they shouldn't be lying there. The owner would be a fool to trust people that way. :tongue:

WHO MOVED THE SMILIES AGAIN???

Paperboys used to steal from these when they were short on papaers. I knew of a one or two who would sign up a new customer, never register the account, and then steal the needed papers from vending machines each day.

I'm sure that they all ended up as serial killers.

Yommama #2 is a cofee pot viewed from on top.
Yommama #3 is probably some kind of curtain or bellows - but there are a lot of choices.

I think the coffee carafe is viewed from the bottom and it's #3 in the second set and the #2 picture appears to be from a gear shift lever.
