You may not know this but many nonliving 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!

Jack K. said...

croak, eureka, I had never thought of the remote that way. snerk, chuckle, giggle.
