    He can kiss that computer goodbye after she’s
    done with it.

    MARG! I bet where you live nobody owns a
    snowblower since you only get a few inches at
    a time. It was pretty snow less here last year as
    I didn’t have to use my snowblower once.

    Are Computers Men or Women?

    A language teacher was explaining to her class that in French, nouns unlike their English counterparts, are grammatically designated as masculine or feminine.

    “House” in French, is feminine -“la maison,” “Pencil” in French, is masculine “le crayon.”

    One puzzled student asked, “What gender is computer?” The teacher did not know, and the word was not in her French dictionary.

    So for fun she split the class into two groups appropriately enough, by gender and asked them to decide whether “computer” should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

    Both groups were required to give four reasons for their recommendation.

    The men’s group decided that computer should definitely be of the feminine gender (“la computer”), 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 review
    4.As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheque on accessories for it.

    The women’s group, however, concluded that computers should be masculine “le computer”) 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
    4.As soon as you commit to one, you realise that if you had waited a little longer you could have gotten a better model.

    Thank you! Your comments make the morning so much better and are often better than the comic itself.

    I think we now know, however, why the Plymouth convertible is still running after more than 50 years….

    Broomie’s last job in computers was de-bugging ENIAC with a broom and dustpan.
