Well, no, actually, saying "gave birth" does, in fact, imply that they got some of the original generic seed from another source.

It was a short but hot love between him, Konqui, and her, the bitten fruit from Cupertino.

But after she was pregnant, she left the guy, giving their kid a new name, so noone could see anymore, who had planted the seed in her.

But later the man saw, that his child was growing so well - so he tried to forget, that she left him all alone in the cold, and decided to adopt his own child again.

The point is:

With the functions in the ribbon, you are changing the *content* of your document, slideshow or spreadsheet or you are changing the format of it.

Everything in the Office-Menue is about dealing with your files (opening, saving, printing - yes you can argue, if it is file-related - signing etc.). Sure, you can argue about the name and the icon of the Office-Menue but it is a "kind of good" analogy to the Windows-Start-Button.

Any programming language is at its best before it is implemented and used.
