    computer joke
    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 lápiz.''

    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.

    whether ''computer'' should be a

    masculine or a feminine noun.

    They are wrong on that one:

    If you're with a computer, in Spanish you will be with a female named Dora.

    You just have to separe some words to understand it.

    Something like this: "computa dora''

    The reason they put "computadora" as one word is to hide the name of the Adwhore.
