I've mentioned before that one of my favorite things about this blog is its reader contributions. Yesterday, two of my Twitter friends alerted me to a feature the Huffington Post is running: "The Most Ridiculous Fortune Cookie Fortunes of All Time." Most of the photos in the HuffPo slideshow are not-a-fortunes, and when you visit the link above you can rate and comment on the individual cookie inserts. Here is a sampling of what they consider the most ridiculous:
"Hi, my name is Bob, and I'm from California, and we brought the world fortune cookies!"
"Real fortune is being heard. US Census."
"You are almost at the top. That means you have further to fall."
"Ignore previous cookie."
"You are a lover of words, someday you should write a book."
"You are not illiterate."
"Could I get some directions? ('To where?') To your heart."
"Come back later...I am sleeping. (yes, cookies need their sleep, too)"
