WELCOME to TUESDAY MAY 5, 2020
Here’s the Story……
Male or Female? From the Washington Post Style Invitation, in which it was postulated
that English should have male and female nouns, and readers were asked to assign a gender to nouns of their choice and explain their reason. The best submissions:
SWISS ARMY KNIFE: Male, because even though it appears useful for a wide variety of
work, it spends most of its time just opening bottles.
KIDNEYS: Female, because they always go to the bathroom in pairs.
TIRE: Male, because it goes bald and often is over-inflated.
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.
SPONGES: Female, because they are soft and squeezable and retain water.
MAGIC 8 BALL: Male, because it gives monosyllabic answers that usually
indicate it did not pay attention to your question.
WEB PAGE: Female, because it is always getting hit on.
SHOE: Male, because it is usually unpolished, with its tongue hanging out.
ZIPLOC BAGS: Male, because they hold everything in, but you can always see right through them.
SUBWAY: Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.
HOURGLASS: Female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.
HAMMER: Male, because it hasn’t evolved much over the last 5,000 years, but it’s handy to have around.
SUBWAY: Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick up people.
CRITIC: Female, What, this needs to be explained?
Hey I’m just saying. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a HAPPY TUESDAY people, stay inside, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up!
Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!

Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ”
“I am leaving soon, and you will forgive me if I speak bluntly. The universe grows smaller every day, and the threat of aggression by any group, anywhere, can no longer be tolerated. There must be security for all, or no one is secure. Now, this does not mean giving up any freedom, except the freedom to act irresponsibly.”
Answer: ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’
Klaatu, accompanied by an eight-foot tall robot named Gort, arrives to warn Earth’s world leaders that they need to mend their ways (this was at a time when the Cold War looked like hotting up), explaining that the citizens of other planets are concerned about the use of nuclear arms. Of course, he is almost immediately shot by frightened soldiers, but is healed before he escapes to live among the people and find out what they are like. As the search for him intensifies, he asks his companion to deliver the famous message “Klaatu barada nikto”, a phrase whose meaning has never been definitely determined, but which seems to be a message calling for mercy towards Earth if anything should happen to him. She says this to Gort as the robot collects Klaatu’s body, and takes it back to the spaceship where Klaatu is (temporarily) brought back to life so that he can deliver his final warning to the people of Earth.
