Male or Female?

You might not have known this, but a lot of inanimate objects are actually either male or female. Here are some examples I got in an email:




FREEZER BAGS: They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.






PHOTOCOPIERS: These are female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again. They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong buttons.









TIRES: Tires are male because they go bald easily and are often over-inflated.








HOT AIR BALLOONS: Also a male object because to get them to go anywhere you have to light a fire under them.










SPONGES: These are female because they are soft, squeezable, and retain water.




WEB PAGES: Female because they're constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.










TRAINS: Definitely male because they always use the same old lines for picking up people.






EGG TIMERS: Egg timers are female because over time all the weight shifts to the bottom.













HAMMERS: Male because in the last 5000 years they've hardly changed at all and are occasionally handy to have around.










THE REMOTE CONTROL: Female. Ha! You probably thought it would be male, but consider this: a man would be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying.

I have a book giveaway going on.

Hi Sally, another fun post to share. I love the analogies of each one. I did think the remote would be male! Very funny.

I received my book. Thank you Sally. Now if I can get off the computer I might get some reading done.

I laughed when you have the same basket and baking dish. We do have many things in common. I would love to meet you some day. We sometimes talk about making a trip to Miami because Bill's parents are buried there. It is a shame we are so far away. If we do, we could meet for lunch. That would be great.

Hugs...Jeanne
