Minions: Too Stupid to be Female

Interesting fact: Minions are all male because their creator believed they were too stupid to be female.

Speaking to The Wrap, Minions creator Pierre Coffin said he couldn't picture females being "dumb" enough to be a Minion.
 
And I can hear the reverberating applause and the strident screams of approval from women everywhere!
 
Minions sprang onto our screens in 2010 with the Despicable Me movie, which sees the little guys serving supervillain Gru. Following a sequel in 2013, the dungaree- and goggle-wearing yellow sidekicks have been given a movie of their own this year.
 
On Wednesday afternoon, I was in Damansara Perdana in PJ to accept VP Education Foo Han Piew’s invitation to be the General Evaluator for the Gamuda Toastmasters Club meeting.










 
 







And in the evening, I went to the city Bankers Club, to be precise to attend the ITC Bintang Toastmasters meeting. I was an Evaluator for CC speech #6. This was a very well-attended meeting with thirty-three participants.














 
 







For sure, I enjoyed both the meetings. My scores for the two meetings were identical too – an 8 over 10!
