A helpful reminder of all the things a man of the hour must ascertain he has on his person before he leaves the shelter of the home into the daily unknown.

It is ritualistic in nature in that it must be performed with specific actions and gestures as follows. Don't forget to use only your right hand:

"Spectacles" (gently touch the lower forehead)
"Testicles" (even more gently pat yourself down, let not the finger, linger)
"Wallet" (check the right breast pocket)
"Watch" (tap the left coat pocket, where presumably you will find it hanging on the end of a chain)

The fact that you are tracing the holy cross in prayer and smirking is purely incidental.

Usage

Father Anthony: (blissfully) "And that, children, concludes my sermon at Sunday mass. The father, the son, the holy spirit, Amen."
Kamraj Who Came to Worship: (dutifully) "The father, the son, the holy spirit, Amen."
Keetaka Who Came for the Free Wine: (predictably) "Spectacles, testicles, wallet, watch!"

Andimuthu Raja, a.k.a Spectrum Raja is infamous for pulling off the worlds second largest scam (according to Time Magazine,Watergate is the only other scam of such absurd proportions). He cheated the gorement of $40 billion it simms. Now we won't get into the nuances of the scam. For that, take your soda buddi glasses and go hang out at Wikipedia. What we can tell you is that to pull of a scam is now called "doing a spectrum raja" or "don't be a spectrum raja". Used in jest to admonish someone who commits a minor transgression (eg. cheating in an exam) or to describe an egregious offense involving duplicity and cunning (eg. stealing sandalwood trees).


Usage

whacking pink tuck and hiding it in your chaddys is it?
You are on your way to becoming a spectrum raja
