About That Red Dot

For centuries, Hindu women have been sporting 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
United States. If nothing is there, he must remain in India to answer
telephones and provide us with Verizon technical support.
