Jenny asks…

Where can I find fortune cookie sayings to give to about 50 people? Funny ones would be nice!?

Doing a little thing to give to co workers and need about 50 different fortune cookie type sayings. Know any good sites?

Suzi Q answers:

I found a website that lists some in different categories for you (love, general, corporate, motivational). Here are the funny ones but I’d encourage you to include the other categories too, they’d add up to more than 50 and would give a bit of variety instead of them being all funny:

He who throws dirt is losing ground.

You can always find happiness at work on Friday.

Do not mistake temptation for opportunity.

A woman who seeks to be equal with men lacks ambition. Ouch!!!

The greatest danger could be your stupidity.

He who laughs at himself never runs out of things to laugh at.

He who laughs last is laughing at you.

A closed mouth gathers no feet.

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

A cynic is only a frustrated optimist.

A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind, and won’t change the subject.

It doesn’t matter. Who is without a flaw?

The world may be your oyster, but it doesn’t mean you’ll get its pearl.

Sharon asks…

we are having a cookie day at school….it may sound like it’s nerdy but actually we were all craving cookies at the time so we decided to have a cookie day……so im making fortune cookies! 🙂 any ideas on some funny quotes? preferably appropriate :P. thanks!!

Suzi Q answers:

Customers are advised to put your hands in the air and wave ’em like you just don’t care.

Donald asks…

What are good sayings to put in fortune cookies for asking a boy to a turnabout dance?

I am asking this boy to a turnabout dance. I was gonna go out to eat with him and somehow get fortune cookies delivered to us. In his would be something like “You will have an amazing night at your next special event.” Meaning the dance. So just in case he does not get it I would like to have some other back up lines.
Let me know if anyone can think of some!

Suzi Q answers:

I think it’d be good to either ask in the cookie if he’ll go with you, or say “you will go with (your name) to the dance on (date).”

Donna asks…

Can we make a better fortune cookie?

It has been insightfully pointed out by a fellow Yamster that fortune cookie sayings have significantly deteriorated in quality! They use to pack a predictive punch but now you would be better off getting inspiration from the back of a tube of toothpaste!

I say we can do better!

So far, I’ve been able to collect the following suggestions.

A cape is all you need!
Your meal is free.
You will meet a distant relative of Bud Abbot
You are within spiritual arms lenght of your soulmate.
Know SVR, know greatness!
Leave now for The Dominican Republic
Ignore the number 32.5 at your own risk!
Green shoes, brown socks!!!!!
Nothing beats Sartre!

Please feel free to make a contribution to the list.

When completed, I plan to take it to the annual Fortune Cookie symposium next August in Denmark.
Superb answers! And I had my doubts about humanity!

laHolly- Excellent point. We all need to take a look at hose hexagrams!
Gene- Brillant suggestions! You can be sure that I include your answer in next year’s best of December 2009!
