Le Computer or La Computer?
A language teacher called Thérèse was explaining to her class that
in French nouns are labelled as either masculine or feminine.
This was news to the class, as in English, nouns have little or no concept of gender.
‘House, in French, is feminine — ‘la maison.’
‘Pencil, in French, is masculine — ‘le crayon.’
One puzzled student asked please miss, ‘Which gender is a computer?’ .
Thérèse did not know whether it was le computer or la computer, moreover the
word wasn’t 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 feminine noun.
Men’s Computer Gender Group – La computer
The men’s group decided that computers should definitely be female: la computer’ because:
No one but their creator understands their internal logic.
The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for possible later retrieval.
As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your pay cheque (check) on accessories for it.
Women’s Computer Gender Group – Le computer
The women’s group, however, concluded that computers should be male: ‘le computer’ . Here is the ladies reasoning:
In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on.
They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves.
They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem.
As soon as you commit to one, you realise that if you’ d waited a little longer, you could have got a better model.
Who do you think won the gender argument?
Should it be Le Computer or La Computer?
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great Monday people and
whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!

G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….
Two friends are discussing the possibility of love.
“I thought I was in love three times,” one friend says.
“How so?” his friend asks.
“Five years ago I deeply cared for a woman who wanted nothing to do with me.”
“And that wasn’t love?” his friend asks.
“No,” he replies. “That was obsession. Then two years ago I deeply cared for an
attractive woman who didn’t understand me.”
“Was that love?”
“No,” he replies. “That was lust. And just last year I met a woman aboard a cruise
ship to the Caribbean. She was smart, funny, and a great conversationalist. And
everywhere we met on that boat, I would get this strange sensation in the pit of my stomach.”
“Was that love?” his friend asks.
“No,” he replies. “That was seasickness.”

Tuesday’s Quizzler is……….
My first is simply a vegetable, delicious, round and green.
My third and fourth are sound asleep, as plainly can be seen.
My fifth is fifty, clear enough for any riddle-setter.
Two of my second stacked on their sides will give my final letter.
Now that my second has my parts, fit them together well.
You see me now before your eyes; it’s plain for all to tell.
