Need a Laugh?

Did you know that even inanimate objects have a gender? Look at the list below and see if you can guess which are male, and which are female:

  • Ziplock bags: Male, because they hold everything in but you can see right through them.
  • Copier:Female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm up. It's an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but it can wreak havoc if you push the wrong buttons.
  • Tire: Male, because it goes bald, and often it's over-inflated.
  • 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.
  • Sponges: Female, because they're soft and squeezable and retain water.
  • Web page: Female, because it's always getting hit on.
  • NY Subway: Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick up people.
  • Hourglass: Female, because, over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.
  • Hammer: Male, because it hasn't evolved much over the last 5000 years, but it's handy to have around.
  • Remote Control Female... You thought it would be male, right? 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.
