Guys-1, Gals-big 1

Once upon a time, a Prince asked a beautiful Princess "Will you marry me?"

The Princess said "NO!"

And the Prince lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and went fishing and

hunting and played golf and dated women half his age and drank beer and scotch

and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up .

The End.

A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English,

nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'

'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lápiz.'

A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two

groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether

computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give

four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender

('la computadora'), because:

1.. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2 The native language they use to communicate with other computers is

incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later

retrieval; and

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 ('el

computador'), because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the

problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer,

you could have gotten a better model..

The women won.
