Fortune Cookies


Something that bothers me about fortune cookies is that they aren’t “fortune” cookies anymore, they are “Advice Cookies”.   Below are a few examples of what I’m talking about…













These are not fortunes! 

If I’m not mistaken, a fortune is telling someone what will happen in the future such as…

“You win lottery in next life.” 

“Children will come and be bane of your existence.”

“Boss hate your next proposal.” 

“You will lose hair during next wash.”

“Spouse will knee groin. Many pains come.” 

“New husband lack sense and make you very poor.”

“You will experience a very pathetic event in the near future.”

Maybe I should start my own fortune cookie business because it’s clear that the Advice Cookies they put out today are pathetic.

  1. …you eat a lot of fortune cookies. I used to keep all the fortunes (and mine were luckily legitimate, haha) and they’d get lost in the washing machine.

    But the advice about oranges. I should take it more often. Live long and prosper, with uncommon sense.

    • I know! it’s really pathetic and needs to change. I actually have a favorite chinese restaurant that I go to regularly and once asked if I could have a REAL fortune cookie instead of an advice cookie. My waitress looked at me like I was from another planet. – LOL

      I have no idea who makes the cookies or where the sayings inside the cookies come from, but I think it’s time we revolt and start sending them back.


  3. My wife and I were just talking about this the last time we had take-out! If I wanted “advice cookies” I’d read the stupid memes on Facebook! Although I do like the sarcastic fortune cookies you posted.
