Yin or Yang, Female or Male?

You may not have taken the time before to contemplate this little known fact, but a number of non-living objects are actually either male or female. For example:

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 their butt.

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: It easily gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying.

Thanks for the chuckle. I've seen this before - but it's one of those that remain funny no matter how many times one reads it.

I thought it does need some updating with a couple of additions:

MAPS - definitely female as men don't know how to use them and rather than ask for directions will defer to an "acute" sense of direction.

TRASHBAGS - it is not an insult, but they are female. Men will readily put something in them, but seldom takes them out - unlessed coerced.

Love your additions, Mike. LOL.:)
