online fortune cookie

  (reload this page to read another fortune)


get a free online fortune cookieI love fortune cookies. Especially fresh ones. When have you ever not read one, even if you don’t eat the cookie itself?

Here is Seattle they’re usually fresh because Tsue Chong is a local bakery that sells to everyone in town. How do I know that? Because I had custom fortune cookies made there years ago when Ben left Aldus. Beginning with that original batch of fortunes, I’ve been writing my own all along.

And given that I’ve written all of the fortunes you see here, there’s a real good chance you’ve never read them before. OK, about a 100% chance.

Don’ forget that these ain’t the fortune cookies you’re used to at the end of your meal, served up along side your bill. Nope. I wrote these myself. Personally.

Wikipedia describes a fortune cookie saying they contain “a piece of paper with words of faux wisdom or vague prophecy”. Sounds about right to me.
