This is just too much! I am a fan of ordering Chinese food. I probably treat myself every couple of weeks. And YES! I do get a kick out of finding out what little tidbits of wisdom or fun lie waiting for me in the fortune cookie. Us single gals need a little harmless hope now and then. But now its being taken away from us! The world's largest fortune cookie maker, Wonton Food, is removing romantic messages from their fortunes. Why? Because they received some emails from parents stating they didn't want their kids reading romantic messages. So Wonton Food is going G-rated messages across the board.
Sorry gals but it sounds like our fun is over. Gone are the thrills of 'One who admires you greatly is hidden before your eyes' and 'A romantic mystery will soon add interest to your life' messages. We may as well replace them with 'Don't get out of bed today'. -(sigh)-
Maybe we should look into fortune cookies just for women that are found in every purse we purchase. With messages like, 'You are fabulous and this little pouch of fantastic wrapped around your shoulder is further proof of that'. Any thoughts on funding for this luscious little undertaking?
