The Gender Side of Things

EVERYTHING HAS A GENDER
You may not know this but many non-living things have a gender
...Ziploc Bags are Male because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.
...Copiers are Female because once turned off it takes a while to warm them up again. It's an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.
...A Tire is Male because it goes bald and it's often over-inflated.
...A Hot Air Balloon is Male because to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it, and of course, there's the hot air part.
...Sponges are Female because they're soft, squeezable and retain water.
...A Web Page is Female because it's always getting hit on.
...A Subway is Male because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.
...An Hourglass is Female because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.
...A Hammer is Male because it hasn't changed much over the last 5,000 years, but it's handy to have around.
...A Remote Control is Female. Ha! You thought it'd be male, didn't you? But consider this - it gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying!

Quite funny. Thanks for comments and belated birthday wishes on my post. There are still a couple of foibles to work out, Peter is still looking into these. Meanwhile things are at least workable for me.

Stop by again sometime.
