"Der Stinkefinger"

Notice for future reference: not "Die Stinkefinger". Not "Das Stinkefinger".
Do you ever wonder if there is a committee in Brussels that determines such matters?

Ah, yes. Der Stinkefinger. Er riecht schlecht, as the name implies. I have no explanation for its (his?) gender. I guess Germans think that boys have the cooties.

I should add that the word with the most confusing gender is "das madchen", aka "the girl". Why "girl" is a gender-neutral noun instead of feminine, I'll never understand...
