I wouldn’t press your luck, Ziggy, that far.
The fortunes at the local Chinese buffet have a URL printed to get a second fortune.
Sure—-if your willing to pay for it!
My fortune cookies always read exactly the same: “Help! I’m being held prisoner in a Chinese bakery!”
Or, at least that’s how I read them, anyway.
I once got a fortune cookie that said, “That wasn’t chicken”. I also got one that said, " Tastes like chicken".
But what you probably don’t know is that fortune cookies come from a small town outside of Kyoto, Japan, not China. The cookies are not widespread throughout Japan and remain very much a regional specialty. The Chinese are very confused as are the Japanese? It is and American invention.
Fortune cookies don’t have real fortunes anymore. Restaurants are afraid of being sued.
The last fortune cookie I ate cut the inside of my mouth.
The second cookie says" Please disregard the previous fortune cookie".
I always ask for more fortune cookies and they are free and fun too.
And a third.
