From the Files of the Obvious

"You will be happy upon receiving good news."

Um, fortune cookie? No shit. That's generally how it works. Good news = happiness. I don't generally receive good news and fall to my knees in despair and rent my clothes in sorrow. Can you even pretend to come up with an actual fortune for me rather than stating a known equation?

I just keep opening them until I find a fortune that I like. 'Course, I always end up eating all the ones I break open and then feel like barfing. BLECH....
Have you ever thought about trying tarot cards?

I think an accurate fortune would be "A bad tasting cookie awaits you."

I gave up on fortune cookies long ago, I think they should be renamed "stupidly obvious proverb" cookies instead.

On a similar subject, a Boston Globe Online headline recently proclaimed, "Study: Sex Makes Young People Feel Good". Whoa...stop the presses! Who would have ever guessed anything so startling?
