...another funny email


Recommended Posts

I must add a disclaimer to this one. I don't necessarily agree with any of the following information. But, it is funny!!!






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's 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.

Great one Linda!




A teacher was teaching a young class of kids from Spanish speaking homes.


She was in the middle of a very interesting discussion when right out of the blue a hand went up and one boy said...


"Teacher, I want to go take a sheet". Well, the teacher said, Pedro you should not say that. You should raise your hand and say "Teacher I want to go do number two!" You go ahead now.


She only got started again when another hand went up. "Teacher, I wanna go take a peese!" Jean, you should not say that. You should say "Teacher I wanna go do number one!" Please remember that next time, and you can go ahead now.


She worked with the kids about 20 minutes and suddenly noticed a student named Juan in the corner crying. She said "Juan, what is the trouble. Why are you crying?" But the crying kept on. Juan would not stop crying. After about another minute Carlos put up his hand and said "Teacher, Juan wanna go take a sheet and he ain't got no number!"
