Computer Jokes About Computer Gender (Le or La computer?)

Computer Gender Male?
Computer Gender Female? Funny story

A language teacher called Thérèse was explaining to her class that in French nouns
are labelled as
either masculine or feminine.  This was news to the class, as in English, nouns have little or no concept of gender.  Thérèse explained,

'House, in French, is feminine -- 'la maison.'

'Pencil, in French, is masculine -- 'le crayon.'

One puzzled student asked please miss, 'Which gender is a computer?'
.

Thérèse did not know whether it was le computer or la computer, moreover the word wasn't
in her French dictionary. So for fun she split the class into two groups appropriately enough, by
gender, and asked them to
decide whether 'computer' should be a masculine
or feminine noun.

Men's
Computer Gender Group - La computer
The men's
group decided that computers should definitely be female: la computer'
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.
  4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half
    your
    pay cheque (check) on accessories for it.

Women's
Computer Gender
Group - Le computer
The women's
group, however, concluded that computers should be male: 'le computer'
.  Here is the ladies
reasoning:

  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.
  4. As soon as you commit to one, you realise
    that if you'
    d waited a little
    longer, you could have got a better model.

Who do you think won the gender argument?
Should it be Le Computer or La Computer?
