fortune cookie quality is deminishing

i got a fortune cookie this evening that read "If your desires are not extravagant, they will be granted."

this is leading me to ask who lets this kind of crap come out?

why not just say "shoot low so you're not dissapointed!?"

 

post your own less than motivational fortune cookie!

Try Psalm 37 instead verse 4 instead

I like Psalm 37 verse 4 - God's version of your fortune cookie - Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

And just who really uses the

And just who really uses the fortune cookie for anything besides a little bit of extra filler in their stomach after dinner? 

I believe them just as much as the horoscopes that some people read and live by every day and then wonder what is going on.

The fortune cookies are good

The fortune cookies are good for a laugh and that's about it for me, same goes for the horoscopes as many times they cause people more problems than anything else.

I truly believe any good fortune I have in life has been created through my own choices and decisions. Same goes for the misfortunes actually.

fortune cookie quality is diminishing

Fortune cookies are a lot more entertaining if you add the words "in bed" to the end of whatever fortune you get.

  'If your desires are not extravagant, they will be granted. - in bed.'

Ok now THAT is funny!  I am going to have to do that - at least mentally - whenever I get a fortune cookie.  

My thought on those dial in phone psychics is that if they are really all that psychic, why don't they call the people who want to talk to them?  ;)
