A QUESTION OF GENDER

Yooooohooooooo everyone! It's a brand New Year !!

And to start off, let's have some fun and laughter....

hehee...... funnybone time.....


A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish,
unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or
feminine.

"House" for example, is feminine : "la casa"

"Pencil" however, is masculine : "el lapiz"

A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?" Instead of giving
the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and
female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether
'computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group
was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The male group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the
Feminine gender ('la computadora') because...

1) No one but their creator understands their internal logic;
2) The native language they use to communicate with other
computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;
3) Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for
possible retrieval later;
4) As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself
spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

(The reasons get more interesting....)

The women's group however, concluded that 'computers' should
be of the Masculine gender ('el computador') because...

1) In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
2) They have a lot of data, but still can't think for themselves;
3) They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time
they ARE the problem;
4) As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited
a little while longer, you could have gotten a better model.


Needless to say, the women won..... kakakaka




Have a nice week ahead, everyone!
