    A language instructor was explaining to her class that, in French, nouns are
    grammatically designated as masculine or feminine.
    "House" in French is feminine. "La Maison"
    "Pencil" in French is masculine. "Le Crayon"

    One puzzled student asked "What gender is computer?" The teacher did not
    know...and the word was not in her French dictionary. So for fun, she split the
    class into 2 groups (appropriately enough, by gender) and asked them to decide
    whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Both groups were
    required to give 4 reasons for their recommendation.

    The men's group decided that computers should definitely be of the feminine
    gender - "la computer" - because:
    1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic.
    2. The native language they use to communicate with to other computers is
    incomprehensible to everyone else.
    3. Even the smalled mistakes are stowed in long term memory for
    possible later retrieval.
    4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending
    half your paycheck on accessories for it.

    The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be
    masculine - "Le computer" - because:
    1. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
    2. They have a lot of data, but they are essentially clueless.
    3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but in half the
    time they ARE the problem.
    4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you'd only
    waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

    THE WOMEN WON!

    I would have to agree with the women, simply because computers so often act retarded...
