    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???
