quote of the day

I know he stole it from an email, but it still made me laugh:

For centuries, Hindu women have worn a red spot on their foreheads. We have always, naively, thought that it had something to do with their religion.

The true story was recently revealed by the Indian Embassy in Washington, D.C.When one of these women gets married, she brings with her a dowry. On her wedding night, the husband scratches off the red dot to see if he has won a convenience store, a gas station, a donut shop, or a motel!

Yeah, I know. It's racist and chauvanistic.... but it's still funny.

(Shemalessly stolen from here.)


Reminds me of a joke I shared with an Indian colleague a while back.

"What's the difference between a guy pissing his pants and a guy in New Delhi?"

"Is this gonna be some racist joke?"

"I don't think so, but you tell me. What's the difference between a guy pissing his pants and a guy in New Delhi?"

"I don't know. What?"

"The first one is incontinent, the second is in subcontinent."

"Oy. That's terrible...but not racist."

I was told the same joke years back by a friend of mine who happens to be Hindu, female and married.

Does that make her chauvanistic and rascist then?

'Shemalessly', Rob? You tryin to tell us something?

Rob - You got it all wrong. The red spot comes from her husband poking her on the forehead while saying, "You are so fucking ugly!"
