Male or Female?




You might not have known this, but a lot of non-living objects are actually either male or female. Here are some examples:

.
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.
.

HAMMERS: Male, because in the last 5000 years, they've hardly changed at all, and are handy to have around.
.

EGG TIMERS: Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom.
.

SPONGES: These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water.. (ain't that the truth)

.
*I got this in an e-mail and thought it was funny and true, so I'm passing it along!

I love this Mari!!! And with the photocopiers, all I could think of is "yes, they are reproductive and such...but when the cartridges run out, there's no production at all...okay, so, well, I guess that's me....no good stuff left in MY cartridge!"

Have a great weekend.
