ok heres the deal... its simple. all you have to do is write a small phrase, like the kind you get in a fortune cookie. the fortune you write is the one the next person gets, and so on. you can either make up an original fortune or you can cite someone/something. yes cite, thats right proper literary citation form. if its a moive, you must include either the actor or the character; as well as the movie in the citation. proper spelling and grammar is also asked. consider this an excerise in proper writing skills.

A pat on the back is only a few centimeters from a kick in the butt.

"What we call reality is only a point of view."
These cookies better be fattening. *pulls another out in a nonchalant manner*

Be wary of strong drinks. They can make you shoot at tax collectors and miss.
You, there, help me! I was once a prince but a wicked witch turned me into a fortune cookie because I led an angry lynch mob to her hut. DO NOT crack the cookie, or I shall be destroyed, never to return to my human form again!

Rude and stupid.

Never did like the interactive ones, anyway.

*crumples paper*
Haha! I like that one, mei! Why does everyone else get all the interesting ones?

*hopes to get something good . . . again*

Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.

Ohh, I like.
