Things Confucius Never Said; Bizarre Fortune Cookies

Written By Scott Joseph On May 17, 2013

Everyone loves the little strips of paper found in the cookies traditionally served along with the check at Chinese restaurants, much more than the cookies themselves, which, if you ask me, are fairly inedible. And when I say “traditionally” I of course am referring to Chinese restaurants in America, for the fortune cookie is yet another U.S. invention. The “fortunes” are typically vague or inane or both. (I once had one that said I would soon have new clothese.) But the fortunes collected in this article from Mashable show that someone in the fortune-writing room has a sense of humor.

What’s the oddest fortune you ever received in a cookie?
