{fortunate}

I ordered Chinese take-out for dinner tonight.  I got two fortune cookies.  Here is what they said:

“Your lucky SAT answers are: a, c, d, a, b, b, c”

and

“Don’t give in to cynicism.”

The dumplings were delicious!

    Could it be that the SAT folks are workin’ on takin’ back their supremacy from the ACT folks?

    Glad the dump’s were delish!

  2. Kevin Wolf Says:

    Did it honestly give you SAT answers? That is bizarre.

    BTW, wouldn’t you need, like, 50 answers to get through the whole test?

    me love dumpings! esp. with chili garlic sauce

  4. fish Says:

    obviously a defective cookie. The last answer should have been “a”. Don’t trust it.

  5. Adorable Girlfriend Says:

    I don’t trust fortune cookies that don’t give in to cynicism. I smell the tainted work of a little kid at the fortune cookie factory.

    I prefer the North Korean fortune cookies. I just hate America that way.

    Anyway, unless you’re getting the answers to the new high school exit exams, it ain’t worth it.

    Oh lord, me too! They can just shovel them right on into my mouth.

  8. mdhatter Says:

    at least it wasn’t a-b-a-c-a-b.

    that album sucked.

  9. mdhatter Says:

    almost forgot.

    Do you know about the “in bed” thing? Not so much an urban myth, but a very zen truth. Any fortune cookie message is made exponentially more profound through the application of the words “in bed” to the end of the message.

    “Don’t give into cynicism” – in bed.

    see. deep.

    Do you know about the “in bed” thing?

    Who do you think you’re dealing with here? Do I KNOW about it?

    The “in bed” thing is one of the few things that keeps me from driving my car off the overpass every morning and escaping this wretched and shizitay world.

    Incidentally, for anyone who lives in San Antonio, the Chinese takeout discussed above was from Phoenix Chinese Cafe on West Ave. near the intersection with Blanco Road. It’s a fairly improbable location for the best Chinese food in south Texas, but you’ll have to trust me on this. It is sublime. I always figured that wok hay was nothing more than a marketing scam cooked up by Grace Young until I tasted (sensed?) it for the first time at Phoenix Cafe.

    “Your lucky SAT answers are: a, c, d, a, b, b, c” … in bed.

    Does that mean you expect your lovers to bring a No. 2 pencil?

    dumplings : Res Publica :: puppies : ???

    a) boa constrictor
    b) rabid walrus
    c) Cthulhu
    d) Ann Coulter

    e) dim sum. Delicious, juicy, pork dim sum.

  13. Snag Says:

    Also hilarious is any phrase ending with, “That’s what she said.” As in:

    “The dumplings were delicious!”

    “That’s what she said.”

    It makes it sound all nasty, in an 8th grade sort of way.

    wok hay?

  15. Res Publica Says:

    Google?

    “The dumplings were delicious!”

    “That’s what she said – in bed!”

    Yeah, works for me. Very very naughty in a George Costanza kind of way

    See previous thong post. (yes pun was intended)

  18. teh l4m3 Says:

    Naw, see it’s “That’s what yr mom said.”

    Heh heh.
