    What's the best fortune cookie fortune you've gotten?

    My personal favorite:

    FORTUNE NOT FOUND
    ABORT, RETRY, IGNORE?

    I got a blank one once. Figured I'd be dead by morning. Didn't happen. I keep it in my wallet now, for good luck.

    Nice one, soulgeezer.

    I can't really think of a good one that I got, but I know the guitarist in my band has one that says something along the lines of "A musical opportunity will appear soon" or something like that taped onto his computer monitor.

    There's one that's known well here in the falls.
    It's know as "The Racist Fortune"
    A friend of mine has one. They're pretty rare.
    I couldn't believe it when he opened it. I forget what it says exactly. Very racist though.

    "A man best possession is a sympathetic wife"

    I don't think they had my wife in mind when they wrote it, or what it might mean exactly, but it's been on my refrigerator for the last five or six years.

    Several years ago I got a new cube mate at work and he was a really short guy, only about 5' tall.

    On his first day working in our group I went to lunch at a Chinese restaurant and my fortune was "A short stranger will enter your life." That was one of the freakiest coincidences I've ever experienced in my life.

    I very much want to read this "Racist Fortune". Sounds like it'd be an adventure just to get my hands on one.

    One of my ex-colleagues (and a good friend) told my favorite fortune cookie story. His mom (who was a 6th grade teacher at the time) got the chance to take her class on a trip across country to Washington DC but was (and is) really scared to fly.

    The night before her flight my friend and his dad brought home Chinese food (her favorite) for a farewell meal. Earlier in the day they had printed up a fake fortune and before she came home, they used tweezers to remove the original fortune and stick the fake one in.

    The fortune read: "She who flies surely dies."

    :D

    One I seriously got and keep in my wallet:

    "You are the shining star of his existence."
