    One for the ladies

    Got this in an e-mail. We "guys" are the butt of the joke, it's true enough to have to laugh.

    I think it's an older joke too.



    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 lapiz."
    >
    >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.
    >
    >(THIS GETS BETTER!)
    >
    >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.
