Ok so the wife and I go out to have some chinese food and here comes the fortune cookie. I like these for merely entertainment value and so my wife opens up hers.
It reads "Demonstrate refinement in everything you do"
Sounds like good words of advice.
My turn... (opens cookie)
It reads "Digital components are made up of analog parts"
:gle: :eek3: :nuts:
Translation and application please?

Dude, you gotta add "in bed" to the end of every fortune. Both make a lot of sense after that...

I like to add "on the toilet"

I'm with LegendKiller, adding "in bed" to every fortune is fun!
Although...I've never heard the "on the toilet" one...gotta try that.

Hmmmm. No translation or application easily articulated for that digital/analog "fortune". Although it's true, it doesn't seem like sage advice or a foretelling of the future.
I've always heard "in bed". Adding "on the toilet" certainly puts a new spin on them. Maybe we'll have Chinese tonight to try it out!

My last fortune cookie had its fortune stuck to the inside, so when I tugged at it, a small piece ripped off. Then, in a fit of rage, I devoured the remaining half of my cookie to see the rest of my fortune. It read, "Your luck... changed...." I'm not sure if I like that better than the complete fortune: "Your luck has changed today." :shrug:
Last time I got a fortune cookie was at Pei Wei with my then girlfriend that said something to the effect of "You will soon find a new love interest." Not happy with it, she had me go get another fortune cookie. I opened the second one and it was the same fortune. :heh:

I got a fortune cookie today with FIVE fortunes in it. Sadly, two of them were repeats so I only really had three. (as if three was a rip-off... heh.)
"You are one of the people who 'goes places in life'." (x2)
"Your winsome smile will be your sure protection." (x2)
"A thrilling time is in your immediate future."
My favorite of the day came from my second cookie:
"An empty stomach is not a good political adviser."
But I think my favorite one of all time was:
"Some fortune cookies have no fortune."
There's just something very ironic about a fortune cookie whose fortune refers to other fortune cookies, as if it were conscious and aware of what it was. Like it was making sarcastic social commentary about fortune cookies as a whole. I gotta believe that one was a very intelligent fortune cookie. It was an extistentialist Nietche fortune cookie. I bet it was emo and liked getting eaten.

You ate the wisest fortune cookie! NOOOO. You are supposed to mail it back to the fortune cookie company for breeding purposes. Just like we do with m&m's.
tragic.. you may have killed off a very wise bloodline.

lol I cracked open a fortune cookie the other day and it said "Avoid dealing with the opposite sex today. Yeah right!"

A buddy of mine had a fortune cookie 15 years or so ago that said, "You are going on a trip soon. TWA to Cairo." Very specific, eh?
