Don’t get me the wrong way, but I don’t think the Chinese are trying very hard anymore. Okay, not all of the Chinese people — just the ones making chinese fortune cookies. When was the last time that your fortune in the fortune cookie was interesting? Nowadays, I’m finding the Chinese language lessons on the back more interesting. My last fortune cookie was ridiculous. It said, “The rubber bands are heading in the right direction.”
What does that mean? Are they playing Mad Libs over at the Chinese Fortune Cookie Factory in Flushing Queens? It reminds me that South Park joke about how the writers of Family Guy come up with jokes — they have a manatee in a large tank choosing random words, and that later becomes the joke.
