Fortune Cookies

Fortune Cookies

According to San Francisco Chinatown(1) and contrary to popular belief, fortune cookies are a U.S. invention (in China they're advertised as "Genuine American Fortune Cookies"). Some historians trace the dessert's inspiration to a 14th century revolt, in which the Chinese hid messages inside mooncakes to help coordinate their attack against Mongolian invaders.
There are many 'fortune cookie' sites and generators across the Web, but among the best are badcookie.com(2), a site that features spoof fortunes for people who aren't afraid to be a little insulted; and weirdfortunecookies.com(3), which features a collection of odd and nonsensical fortunes from real cookies.
