Fortune Cookie Sayings You'd Never Want to Get

Today is National Fortune Cookie Day!

Since that is ridiculous in and of itself, we've compiled a list of ridiculous fortune cookie sayings. We like to call them Misfortune Cookies...

"Yes, that is his new girlfriend in his profile picture. And yes, she's hotter than you."

"We're sure you'll get a new job soon."

"Let's just say you may want to take that trip to the gyno after all."

"Whatever you do, avoid all highways."

"They're watching you..."

"Don't look now, but I'm pretty sure that guy just took a piece of your hair."

"Great news! Tyler Perry just signed on to do the new Batman trilogy!"

"When the cat's away, the mice will play...in the back kitchen. Actually, I think they were rats."

"You have good health insurance, right?"

"It may be time to invest in some Rogaine."

"It's a boy! (And it's not yours. Go on...ask your wife.)"

"Hope you locked your doors!"

"Don't listen to what anybody tells you. That outfit looks great."

"Your boss fucking hates you, man."

"Who needs their front tooth anyway?"

"Terrible, terrible shit's about to come your way."

"Silence is golden, duct tape is silver...and that creepy neighbor you think has been stalking you just bought a shit load at Costco."

"Is that your car outside? Just got towed."

"Screw it. Have another spare rib. You're having a heart attack May 12 of next year anyway, so..."

"They'll offer you free Wonton Soup. Whatever you do, DO NOT TAKE IT!"

"Dead looks good on you."

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
