(Thanks Jen)

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.
