Wonton Food in Queens, NY, has created a line of fortune cookies that are not as full of the optimism and vague advice most are used to.
“We wanted our fortune cookies to be a little bit more value-added,” marketing director Bernard Chow said. “We wanted to get some different perspective, to write something that is more contemporary.”
“Today is a disastrous day. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.”
“It’s over your head now. Time to get some professional help.”
"Plan for the best, prepare for the worst."
“Perhaps you’ve been focusing too much on yourself.”
"There may be a crisis looming, be ready for it.”
Go for it: If you were writing them, what would your pessimistic fortune say?
