Item Genders

If you are 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:

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

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

3. Tire -- Male, because it goes bald and it's often over inflated.

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

5. 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.

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

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

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

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

10. 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.

LOL.. I like them all. I have always said I had an hourglass figure.. just too damned much sand... and that was before it started shifting. *sighs*

Nice one, ET!

THAT'S weird. My readers send me electronic thank you cards when I take off.
