    Does this sound right to you?

    You may not know that many non-living things have a gender. For example...

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

    2) Copiers -- They 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.

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

    4) 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.

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

    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 changed 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 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.

    Yes but why are cars and boats female? In fact most machinery seems to be female.

    Julie and I are thinking up our own now, but unfortunately, due to our upstanding status as mature, sensible memebers of the fraternity, we are unable to submit them to the forum, as we cannot risk the wrath of the moderators :evil:
