Apr 5th, 2017: Wong… James Wong

He may look like a average 41 year old man, but he’s taking over the position of the most widely
read writer in the world. He’s the new fortune cookie writer at New York's Wonton Food.



Quote:
Indeed, one of Wong's goals is to churn out as many new fortunes as possible. One of the chief complaints
the company gets, he says, is too many repeat fortunes. He says he's been jotting down ideas on scraps
of paper whenever they come to him. "It could be on anything," he said. "I do have a collection of gum
wrappers and napkins and even toilet paper."
You might think it’s a dull job but sometimes it’s more interesting.

Quote:
"A middle aged couple was having dinner before the man was supposed to go off to a business trip, and
the fortune that he received was, 'Romance is in the air for your next trip.'
That definitely was not a good thing," Wong says.

The pair eventually divorced, and Wonton Food got a call from the woman's lawyer.
"Apparently, they were already having trouble with their marriage and the wife blames everything that
went wrong in their marriage on us."
Well, she needed somebody to blame. Amiright!

The wife must be an executive at a health insurance provider. Nobody else would tell a lawyer "we were already having problems but it's ALL THE COOKIE'S FAULT." Sounds like the terminal diagnosis on that marriage was a pre-existing condition!

I have kept ONE fortune from out of a cookie over the years, and I've never seen another copy of it. "Smile, the world isn't ending today. It's already tomorrow in Australia." Seriously.

I kept two. The first, "Pink will be your lucky color," because I was an angsty teen who literally owned no pink items and thought the fortune was probably pretty accurate. The second, "People are seeking you for your sound advice" because I was a sound designer. Elspode gave me a user title based on that same pun once.
