Crude? Yes. Insensitive? Yep. Funny? You betcha!

For centuries, Hindu women have worn a dot on their foreheads.  Most of us have naively thought this was connected with tradition or religion, but the Indian embassy in Ottawa has recently revealed the true story.

When a Hindu woman gets married, she brings a dowry into the union.  On her wedding night, the husband scratches off the dot to see whether he has won a convenience store, a gas station, a donut shop, a taxi cab or a motel in the U.S.   If nothing is there, he must remain in India as a customer service rep.


Sorry about the comment thingy folks. Too much spam.
