piece of trivial information
was sent to us by one of our
Male or Female????: - You may not know that non-living things have a gender; - For example...
ZIPLOCK BAGS: - They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.
COPIERS: - They are female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again. It is an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but it can wreck havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.
TYRE: - Male, because it goes bald and is often over-inflated.
HOT AIR BALLOON: - Male, because, to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it, and of course there's the hot air bit.
SPONGES: - Female, because they're soft, squeezable and retain water.
WEB PAGE: - Female, because it is always getting hit.
SUBWAY: - Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick up people.
HOURGLASS: - Female, because over time the weight shifts to the bottom.
HAMMER: - Male, because it hasn’t changed much over the last 5000 years, but it is handy to have around.
REMOTE CONTROL: - Female. Ha!!! You thought that it would be male didn’t you.But consider this - it gives a man pleasure, he’d be lost without it, and while he doesn’t know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying.
I am not too sure if the above can be believed but was told by the female sender that
it would be discriminatory if we did not post it.
