The New York Times business section writes about ominous fortune cookies that are coming out of Wonton Food in Long Island City. (Why is it in business and not like Dining In/Dining Out or Metro? Because it was a business editor who got the original weird fortune that sparked the idea). I helped out a bit on the story. The reporter showed me the fortune and I was able to — on sight — identify which factory it had come from (scary).
Among the more frank fortunes:
Perhaps youâ€™ve been focusing too much on yourself.
There may be a crisis looming, be ready for it.
Today is a disastrous day. If you canâ€™t beat â€™em, join â€™em.
Itâ€™s over your head now. Time to get some professional help.
WhatÂ Wonton Food will learn is that Americans don’t like negative fortunes. It is contrary to their sense of entitlement.
