[size=32]Spanish Computer ![/size]

A Spanish language teacher was explaining to her class that in
Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or

"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 divided 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 to buy 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 realise that if you had waited a
little longer, you could have got a better model.

The women won.

Send this to all the smart women you know......And to all the men that
have a sense of humour.
