1. You may not know that many non-living things have a gender.

    For example...

    1) Ziploc Bags --
    They are Male, because they hold everything in,
    but you can see right through them.

    2) Copiers --
    They are Female, because once turned off,
    it takes a while to warm them up again.
    It's an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are
    pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.

    3) Tire --
    Male, because it goes bald and it's often over-inflated.

    4) Hot Air Balloon --
    Male, because, to get it to go anywhere,
    you have to light a fire under it,
    and of course, there's the hot air part.

    5) Sponges --
    Female, because they're soft, squeezable and retain water.

    6) Web Page --
    Female, because it's always getting hit on.

    7) Subway --
    Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.

    8) Hourglass --
    Female, because over time,
    the weight shifts to the bottom.

    9) Hammer --
    Male, because it hasn't changed much
    over the last 5,000 years,
    but it's handy to have around.

    10) Remote Control --
    Female...... Ha! You thought it'd be male.
    But consider this -- it gives a man pleasure,
    he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't
    always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying.
