Fortune Cookies


Scott's Tip Of The Day: Unfortunately, the highlight of a Chinese dinner has become the fortune cookie at the end. "What is my fortune? What does my fortune say?" Who cares!!?? You know who wrote your fortune? An Asian man with a poor command of the English language. And that's if you're lucky. That man might not be Asian at all! He could be an American with a poor command of the English language! How Unfortunate! How Unauthentic! Do you think if the man writing your fortunes was really clairvoyant, he would be writing fortune cookies? No! He would have a $4.99/minute telephone line like Miss Cleo did. Do you remember Miss Cleo? She was sued! But she settled out of court for only a portion of the 13 million + she made with that scam. Not a bad deal. Don't take your fortune cookie too seriously. Instead, just enjoy your meal and savor that strange wonky feeling after consuming too much MSG.

Scott,
I liked the blog, great sense of humor and refreshing content. I have added a link on my blog to yours, if you could return the favor that would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Confucius say, man who put too much faith in fortunes will not like way cookie crumbles.

Btw, am ordering Chinese food for dinner tonight -- no MSG, and extra fortune cookies.

In my opinion the paper tastes better than the cookie, but the lucky numbers have been known to produce lottery winnings.

Fortune cookies taste like crap. Have you noticed they're now putting in "how to say something in Chinese?"

You mean fortune cookies aren't real? Who knew?
