EVERYTHING HAS A GENDER

What gender is it? If you're like most people, common everyday items look inert to you. But what you may not know is that many of them have a gender.

For example . . .


Ziploc Bags -- Male,
because they hold everything in but you can see right through them.

Copier -- Female,
because once turned off, it takes a while to warm up. It's an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.

Tire -- Male,
because it goes bald and often it's 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 part.

Sponges -- Female,
because they're soft and squeezable and retain water.

Web Page -- Female,
because it's always getting hit on.

Subway -- Male,
because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.

Hourglass -- Female,
because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.

Hammer -- Male,
because it hasn't evolved much over the last 5,000 years, but it's handy to have around.

Remote Control -- Female . . . Ha! You thought it'd be male. But consider :
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.
