I love Chinese food, and Chinese restaurants, particularly in a group of people who all order something different and put everything in the middle so everyone gets a taste. But I don't like most Fortune Cookies.
First of all, they're too sweet without the substance of a Frito. But my bigger beef is the fortunes themselves- they give you some lucky numbers (huh) a chinese word (good) and some cliched platitude. I have always wanted to replace them with my own fortune. I like real messages that will provoke a genuine response. Messages like Today is an auspicious day to sell everything and put the money into lottery tickets or Your wife is having an affair. Something uplifting, wholesome and filled with information even if it is probably a lie.
So I've decided to put out a short list of appropriate fortunes I'd include in my Cynical Brand Fortune Cookies. If you have any suggestions, /msg me.
