It was supposed to be an e-mail with many photos but when I copied it and posted it, no photos came up just the links and there were many links so I just deleted them all and posted the reason instead

The e-mail was headed  "let's not get rid of newspapers"  and had photos of some headlines that seemed daft in view of the contents of the story.
I've tried copying one but the link has come up instead  but if you click on it it gives you an example of what the others would be like

For those who like to think!   

  1. If poison expires, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous?

2. Which letter is silent in the word "Scent," the S or the C?

 3. Do twins ever realize that one of them is unplanned?

 4. Why is the letter W, in English, called double U? Shouldn't it be called double V?

 
5. Maybe oxygen is slowly killing you and It just takes 75-100 years to fully work.

 
6. Every time you clean something, you just make something else dirty.

 
7. The word "swims" upside-down is still "swims"

 8. 100 years ago everyone owned a horse and only the rich had cars.
Today everyone has cars and only the rich own horses.
 
 
Six great confusions still unresolved.
 
1. At a movie theatre, which arm rest is yours?

 2. If people evolve from monkeys, why are monkeys still around?

 3. Why is there a 'D' in fridge, but not in refrigerator?

 4.  Who knew what time it was when the first clock was made?

 Vagaries of English Language!

 Ever wonder why the word funeral starts with FUN?

Why isn't a Fireman called a Water-man?

 How come Lipstick doesn't do what it says?

 If money doesn't grow on trees, how come Banks have Branches?

 If a Vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a Humanitarian eat?

 How do you get off a non-stop Flight?

 Why are goods sent by ship called CARGO and those sent by truck SHIPMENT?

 Why do we put cups in the dishwasher and the dishes in the Cupboard?

 Why do doctors 'practice' medicine? Are they having practice at the cost of the patients?

 Why is it called 'Rush Hour' when traffic moves at its slowest then?

How come Noses run and Feet smell?

 
Why do they call it a TV 'set' when there is only one?

 
What are you vacating when you go on a vacation?

 
 This is a good one!
Did you know that if you replace "W" with "T" in
"What, Where and When You get the answer to each of them
