The Friday Five

fortune cookies

Thursday night, I was watching Leverage, and Parker quoted a fortune cookie: "A man with one watch knows the time. A man with two is never sure." 

In honor of Leverage and Parker, today's Friday Five is:

Five Funny Fortune Cookie Fortunes:


1. Confucius say: If you think you can sum up your whole life on this little slip of paper, you're crazy!

2. You will be hungry again in one hour.

3. Don't eat any Chinese food today or you will be very sick.

4. How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?

5. Help! I'm being held hostage in a Chinese bakery!

Your turn. Make up a funny fortune cookie! And happy Friday!

  1. So funny! You really WILL be hungry again in one hour.

    Here's mine:

    Sweet and sour chicken is just chicken nuggets with sweet and sour dip.

    I love s&s chicken!

  3. Love these quotes! I'm not a fan of fortune cookies (to eat), but I always have to crack them open and see my fortune. I especially loved #1!

    Here's mine:
    What goes up, must come down. What goes in, must come out. :)

    1. LOL! Spoken like a mama!

      I confess, I eat the cookie. After I read the fortune.

    1. That's a great fortune: If your career choice doesn't work out, you can always find employment writing fortune cookies. :D

  6. I don't really care for the taste of fortune cookies...but I'm a big fan of reading the silliness inside. As a teen (okay...even now) I used to add the phrase "in bed" at the end of every fortune. Makes them even more ridiculous. :)

    1. LOL! The same thing works with "If you know what I mean." Anything sounds naughty if you tack that on the end. "I went to the grocery store...if you know what I mean." LOL

  7. Gwynly and I eat at Panda Express after church on Sundays. We enjoy seeing what "wisdom" is inside our fortune cookies and figuring out how to match the sayings to what's actually been going on in our lives. Sometimes that means we have to trade the little slips of paper, but we don't care. That just adds to our fun. Yes. We are easily entertained. =)

  8. I love your Sunday tradition! We've been known to do a 'cookie' swap at our table too, if things aren't matching up right. :)

  9. Great post, Erica! I love fortune cookies. We had to bring soup to a Lenten soup supper before the service one year. I went and bought a gallon of hot and sour soup and found these great fortune cookies with Bible verses. They were a hit : )

    BTW, if you don't like fortune cookies, there are Dove chocolate bites with sayings of the day on the wrappers that look suspiciously like fortunes : )
