Masculine – Feminine Perfect Difference

I received this in an email so I am not sure from where or whom it originated. If I new, I would certain mention them because what follows is priceless.  It is simply hilarious. I just had to share it with all. Enjoy!

A Spanish Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike
 English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

 ‘House’ for instance, is feminine: ‘la casa.’
 ‘Pencil,’ however, is masculine: ‘el lapiz.’

 A student asked, ‘What gender is ‘computer’?’

 Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups,
 male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer
 should be a masculine or a feminine noun.
 Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

 The men’s group decided that ‘computer’ should definitely be of the
 feminine gender (‘la computadora’), 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 retrieval; and

 4. As soon 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
(‘el computador’), 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; and

 4. 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

Well don’t they always?
