I have never had a fortune cookie. I don't think they are very common here - or perhaps I am unobservant.I am chuckling at the changes that adding 'in bed' 'except in bed' or 'with corpses' add to the message.
They're probably a US thing; I've never been to a Chinese restaurant that didn't have them (except in China)!!
I loved all of those. I don't remember the last time I had a fortune cookie, obviously far too long ago.
Have one; they're tasty!!
I don't recall them being tasty, no one I know ever eats them.
Seriously the last fortune cookie I got had nothing in it, not a blank piece of paper, nothing....not sure what that means.This post was funny....Seriously.
That would have scared me!!
OMGosh! Really funny today. I loved the "Look out!" fortune. They were all good...well, some were creepy--LOL! ;)
That's why I put them in!!
When I was very young, about a million years ago, my brother and his new (first) wife went to San Francisco on their honeymoon. They brought us a bag of fortune cookies, something we had only seen on TV because Kansas didn't have Chinese restaurants then, and if they had, my mother wouldn't have gone because she only went where she could get a good steak. We were shocked that they didn't taste good. We didn't realize that they aren't for eating.Love,Janie
You apparently got bad or just old cookies; they should be crisp & yummy (except for the fortune)!!
I didn't know that! I never tried eating a fortune cookie again because I thought they all tasted bad.
I once got a very clever one that I used to tell people about for the longest time. And now, when I want to share it, I can't remember what it said!!!
It was probably "Your memory will soon be erased"!!
I had a fortune cookie once that read "eat the cake!"sounded more like a demand than a fortune. Lisa
Fortune cookies CAN be pushy!!
Aww, I miss fortune cookies. No Chinese restaurants in Podunk Arkansas. Loved the ones you posted but am laughing right now at your response to Inger.
What did I say? I forgot!!
All these years, I never knew how to best open a fortune cookie until my teenage son The Pony showed me to squeeze the two ends together. One snap, and you've got the fortune. And the cookie doesn't crumble!
I never knew that; I'll have to try it next time we go for Chinese!!
The fortune you seek is in another cookie. That was funny on a different level.
Good luck on getting the OTHER cookie!!!
Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
