Male or Female? Here are some examples – what would you add to the list? Enter your suggestions in the comments….

10. FREEZER BAGS

They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.

9. South Dakota Foundation Repair contractor . PHOTOCOPIERS

Female for sure: once turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again. And, while they are effective reproductive devices if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong buttons.

8. TIRES

Tires are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated.

7. HOT AIR BALLOONS

Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their butt.

6. SPONGES

These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water.

5. WEB PAGES

Female, because theyre constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.

4. TRAINS

Definitely male, because they always use the same old lines for picking up people.

3. EGG TIMERS

Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom.

2. HAMMERS

Male, because in the last 5000 years, theyve hardly changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around.
