what does an empty fortune cookie mean

I Got An Empty Fortune Cookie

It could mean two things depending on how you look at it.

I was looking forward to our ritual lunch at the Chinese Buffet near our house yesterday.

It’s not the best food but for a buffet it’s always OK — especially their egg fu young which when hot out of the oven is pretty damn tasty. It’s consistent, especially if you go around 11 a.m when they first bring out the food and it’s at it’s freshest.

So, after the meal, the waitress brought the normal 2 fortune cookies and the bill.

Bob grabbed his cookie and said “I really hate these lately. They must be written by some idiot because they aren’t clever like they used to be! They must be outsourcing these cookies to a foreign country or something now…”

One may also ask, what does it mean when you get two fortunes in one cookie? Two Fortunes in Your Fortune Cookie. Opinion #1: The fortunes cancel each other out, and you receive no fortune. Opinion #2: The fortune on top counts. The bottom fortune is discarded.

Similarly one may ask, is it bad luck to open 2 fortune cookies?

You open one fortune cookie, thinking it would be a harmless, string of words, that probably won’t make sense. You start frantically trying to repair your fortune cookie with a glue stick, but it’s too late. Like an atom, when you split your second fortune cookie in half, it causes an explosion.
