    Subject: Spanish Computer

    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.
