I hope this doesn't offend anyone. I thought it was funny. FINALLY SOMEONE HAS CLEARED THIS UP . . For centuries, Hindu women have worn a spot on their foreheads. We have always naively thought that it had something to do with their religion. The true story has recently been 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 spot to see if he has won either, a convenience store, a gas station, a donut shop or a motel in the United States. Just thought you would like to know.
