FINALLY, SOMEONE HAS CLEARED THIS UP FOR ME….

For centuries, Hindu women have worn a dot on their foreheads. Most of us have naively thought this was connected with marriage or religion, but the Indian Embassy in Washington, D.C. 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 or a motel in the United States.

If nothing is there, he must take a job in India answering telephones giving technical advice.

Because cartoon characters can do what they want to, not being real and all.

LOL
Neo, I thought it was funny babe. Sometimes people take the whole PC thing a little too far. I remember a time when jokes could just be that - jokes. They didn’t have to have any hidden meaning behind them, they could just be funny for the sake of being funny and leave it at that.

*sigh*
Those were the days downer

Would it be funny if it wasn’t?

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

I’ve heard better versions of the scratchcard conceit - which is the potentially funny bit. The racial stereotyping is just sad.
