I got one once that said:
"Help, I'm a prisoner in a Chinese Fortune Cookie Factory"
I called the cops.
No, wait. That didn't happen.
It'd be kinda funny if it did though...
Funny, most of the Chinese restaurants I eat at don't have fortune cookies. I'm thinking they're not even Chinese. The were probably an American invention. Although it seems any Chinese restaurant that serves Dim Sum and Congee frown upon things like that.
I went into one traditional Chinese place and ordered congee and the lady asked me if it was for me. I said no, it's for my wife. She asked if my wife was Chinese. I said no. She looked shocked. I guess most white-type people don't know what congee is, let alone like it.
How Much Horsepower Can I have And Still Go To Heaven?
In Australia we call that skippy chinese. It is basically a westernised version of traditional food that looks and tastes nothing like it is suppose to be. Luckly here in Australia we can get proper asian food. You just have to know where to go.
Never let the truth get in the way of a good story
I quit my job delivering chinese food recently. The food was awesome, but you could tell that it was American. Especially since there was Tomato beef. Tomatoes only existed in America until the europeans found them. Things like Potatoes and Tomatoes are not in normal chinese food for that reason.
I ate about 6 or 7 cookies in one day when I worked there. I almost never read the fortunes. The cookies rule though.
I know I´m digging up an old thread but I just saw this one and had to add. A bunch of my friends and i went to Panda Express and when we all opened the fortune cookies my best friend got one that said "You will find 50 cents in the couch." After a good laugh we went back to his house only to discover 35 cents. BASTARDS!
