Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, October 04, 2021

Here’s what I got when I cracked open my lunchtime fortune cookie today:

:) You are very pretty. :)

I appreciated the sentiment, but felt it was misplaced. However, I instantly sensed an opportunity.

I took the little slip of paper and headed toward the nearest pretty girl I could see (who happened to be only a few feet away). Then I said:

“Hey, it looks like they gave me your fortune cookie by mistake.”

The look of puzzlement I got from that quickly turned into a smile after I handed her the fortune. Worked like a charm, you could say.

How cheesy would it be to regularly pull this stunt as a pick-up line? You’d need multiple copies of the same fortune-cookie slip, the procurement of which alone would mark you as desperate. Yes, even moreso than using your business card to scam on the ladies.

Now I’m wondering if the Chinese restaurant is complicit in this whole concept. I’m sure I’m not the first guy to think of this repurposing, and then putting the restaurant on the list of “lucky” spots.
