Fortune Cookie Follies

As if fortune cookies weren't ridiculous enough, I have managed to get some that just make you go "HUH?"

I have had friends tell me about getting blank fortunes and I think we all have gotten the vague and ambiguous fortunes but some are just not right. I had thought about posting this yesterday but couldn't remember the particular "fortune" word-for-word, so I waited. I waited because, even though they are... well, stupid... I collect them, so I knew I had the one I wanted to quote at home.

I searched through the stack at home and stuffed the little paper maxim in my wallet to write about today. I got to work and promptly forgot about the post. That is until lunch when my fortune cookie produced the same fortune I had searched for and stored in my wallet. So now I have it in stereo. So without further ado, here is my first installment of FORTUNE COOKIE FOLLIES:

Behind an able man, there are always.

That has been my fortune at least three times now.


  1. Some poor worker in the fortune cookie bakery is just learning the language perhaps.

  2. Secretia - Perhaps, but then, they may just have a really twisted sense of humor and want us to go crazy trying to figure these things out - lol

  3. Are you freakin' kidding me???

    You know, this is one of my biggest pet peeves....why are they still allowed to even
    CALL them FORTUNE cookies? They're not even proverb cookies anymore....WTF??

  4. Kathryn - I don't know what they should be called but I do agree

  5. You should get your money back! Totally lame.... ;-p

  6. Oh, well, I know I am going against the weight of public opinion but I like the idea of a crack pot fortune cookie...sorta open-ended, alowing for a multitude of ways to complete the thought.
