and I get a fortune cookie. I bust it open and read,

Maybe I'm just being naive, but what is the primary rule for interpreting fortunes?

The primary rule for interpreting fortunes...

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Um

is that to understand their true meaning, you must append to the printed fortune the mystic words of comprehension...

"... in bed."

Alternatively, add "...between the sheets". Try either or both the next time you get one of those stale little proverb casings.

My two favorite fortunes that I have taped up on my monitor are:

"Nothing is a waste of time if you learn something from it"

"There's no point to being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes"

That's so untrue AV. Many years ago a friend had some Take Away Chinese and was raving about the little white bits in it that where delicious.

When he got to the bottom of the container the white bits where still wriggling and he knew exactly what they where.
