Fortune, originally uploaded by Theorris.

Is that really a fortune? Come on, fortunes are supposed to tell you something about the future, right, not some inane statement about personality traits.

Wow, I guess I just proved that fortune wrong.


  1. perhaps the fortune cookie knows more than you do.

    however, I completely endorse your point about the frequent failure of fortune cookies to deliver a fortune. advice, personality diagnosis, whatever. it's annoying.

  2. Oh I would love to be a romantic, lb. I would, in fact, endorse Romanticism as the best way of living if the world weren't against it.

  3. Perhaps the fortune cookie producers have witnessed the fruits of their "fortunes" and opted for a more practical approach of simply giving you quotes or overall outlooks on life. Gotta cover your ass somehow. They should rename them "obvious statement cookies."
