You may not have appreciated that a lot of inanimate objects are actually male or female. Here are some examples:
They're male. They hold everything in, but you can see right through them!
They're female. Once turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again. They're an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong buttons.
They're male. They go bald easily and are often over inflated.
Hot Air Balloons:
They're also male. To get them to go anywhere you have to light a fire under them.
They're female. They're soft, squeezable and retain water.
Also female. They're constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.
Definitely male. They always use the same old lines for picking up people.
They're female. Over time, all the wight shifts to the bottom.
They're male. In the last 1000 years they've hardly changed at all but are occasionally handy to have around.
The Remote Control:
It's female. You probably thought it would be male, but consider this:- It easily gives man pleasure; he'd be lost without it; and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying!
