Play it again -- Pick your fortune cookie


.
Superstitions
.
Good news!
Older man's worst fear laid to rest today
"No more zipper worries" the cookie told
.
But then,
Tea leaves read aloud by his dearest friend.
"Bain of mankind, dread of snaps comes to haunt"
.

If something doesn't catch you, then something else will nip you. There is no winning this thing! ;-)

so clever! i love this, Jim. watch out for those snaps.
we've been noticing stranger and stranger fortunes in our cookies lately, most of them not fortunes at all. very odd saying, many of them inspiring much laughter. i think someone is having a great time writing them, somewhere. that is a job i would love to have!!

Sweet use of the fortune of the cookie, which must have been invented by salesmen.
