They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves and stop crashing.

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.


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.

Send this to all the smart women you know

…And all the men that have a sense of¬† humour..
