Here’s The Story….
A French Teacher was explaining to her class that in French, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. E.g. ‘house’ is feminine – ‘la maison’, ‘Pencil’ is masculine – ‘le crayon’. A student asked, ‘what gender is ‘computer’? Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into 2 groups –male and female and asked them to decide for themselves whether ‘computer’ should be a masculine or feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for the recommendations.
The men’s group decided that ‘computer’ should definitely be of the feminine gender (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

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 (le computer), because:
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, And... 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.

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
An American scientist once visited the offices of the great Nobel Prize-winning physicist, Neils Bohr,
in Copenhagen, and was amazed to find that over his desk a horseshoe was nailed to the wall.
The American said with a nervous laugh, “Surely you don’t believe that horseshoe will bring you good luck, do you, Professor Bohr?”
Bohr chuckled. “I believe no such thing, my good friend. Not at all. I am scarcely likely to believe in such foolish nonsense.
However, I am told that a horseshoe will bring you good luck whether you believe in it or not!” 😳
Thursdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“What’s it doing in the middle of a sheep paddock?”
Answer: The Dish!
“The Dish” is an Australian movie about the large radio telescope situated outside of Parkes in NSW (Australia) and it’s responsibility in relaying the television pictures of man’s first historic moon walk in 1969. In the movie, when the Prime Minister (Bille Brown) is being briefed about the role of the radio telescope, he suddenly realizes the gravity of the situation.
It is extraordinarily funny, when you relate the historical enormity of the task at hand to a satellite dish in a sheep paddock in outback Australia.

Friday’s Quizzler is…….
A spoonerism is a pair of words that can have their initial sounds switched to form new words. The pairs need only sound the same, not necessarily be spelled the same (power saw & sour paw, horse cart & coarse heart). There may sometimes be one or two connecting words (kick the stone & stick the cone, king of the rats & ring of the cats). Given the following definitions, what are the spoonerisms?
1) punched when starting work & discussion about scaling a mountain
2) a container of fibs & a shortage of baked goods
3) hasty vacation & prank gibe
4) a mongoose & artificial precipitation
