Disappointing Fortune Cookie Fortunes

What has happened to fortune cookie fortunes? I got one not too long ago that predicted that I would get a good night's sleep. At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if I got one that predicted that I would remember to floss.

The fortune cookie I opened last night had this fortune:

A carrot a day may keep cancer away.

At first, I thought the cookie was fucking with me, but then I learned that indeed it was true. Eating carrots does help prevent cancer. Good to know, but still a lame fortune. I expect mystery and romance in my fortune cookie fortunes, not health advice.

If this keeps up don't be surprised to find one of these inside your next fortune cookie:

Don't forget to call your mother.

Get a prostrate exam.
