    Some of them make me laugh.

    I've often thought of developing a product called "misfortune cookies". They would contain messages like: "Oops, you broke your cookie" "And what were you expecting this little piece of paper to say?" "Sorry, please play again." "Cookie malfunction. Contact the manufacturer...

    Except

    The one time I got one and there was no fortune inside. I joked I had no fortune because I had no future and we all had a good laugh. Still, it was a bit unsettling. Anyway I've had lots of fortunes since, it was just my luck to get a defective cookie.
