Al Observes Things – A Fortune Folly

panda 001 - small I got a fortune cookie from a local Panda Express yesterday, and here’s what it said:

YOU WILL BE COMING INTO A FORTUNE

PANDA EXPRESS * PANDA INN

Here are my complaints:

  1. Caps lock? Is that really necessary on a fortune?
  2. I don’t like self-referential fortunes (unless they’re really clever).
  3. Branding your fortune? …Really? …Really?

I had always hoped that my fortunes were written by some old, enlightened Chinese guy that had nothing better to do except write fortunes for Chinese restaurants after having relinquished all material possessions and achieving enlightenment.

Now, I realize that it’s some guy named Stan that’s trying to earn some cash while he works on his manuscript.
