question of the weekend: Fortune cookies: what the hell?

Last night I was the recipient of the downright weirdest fortune out of a faux Chinese cookie ever: “Maybe you can go to the moon in the next century.” Or it might have been “Maybe you can live on the moon in the next century.” I thought I’d saved it, but now I can’t find it.

Anyway: Say what? “Maybe” I “can” visit the moon “in the next century”? Maybe I could spend all day trying to parse that and come up with the 187 ways it could be interpreted, but instead, I’ll just laugh at it.

Fortune cookies: what the hell? Do you eat them? Do you heed their wisdom? What’s the weirdest/funniest/most accurate fortune you’ve ever gotten from a cookie? Who writes these things (apart from Homer Simpson, I mean)? Discuss.

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD/QOTW, feel free to email me. Responses to this QOTW sent by email will be ignored; please post your responses here.)
