Post can u guess??

Female & Male Nouns
> > >
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.

WEB PAGE -- female, because it is always getting hit
on.
> > >
SHOE -- male, because it is usually unpolished, with its tongue hanging out.
> > >
COPIER -- female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm up. Because it is an effective reproductive device when the right buttons are pushed.Because it can wreak havoc when the wrong buttons are
pushed.
> > >
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.
> > >
REMOTE CONTROL -- female...Ha!...you thought I'd saymale. But consider, it gives man pleasure (unless he's gay), he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying.
