I'm pretty sure they recycle the fortunes otherwise they'd run out of ones to give, so the chances should be pretty good if you eat fortune cookies often.

What are the chances of managing to save a fortune cookie fortune for over three years? :p

Yeah, I've never seen a fortune cookie with smilies before.

My friend got one that says "Help! I'm trapped in a Chinese bakery!" I thought that was pretty funny.

That's hilarious. I've never seen any funny ones, just cheap Confucious saying ripoffs.

When I was installing red hat a few years ago, I remember seeings a slide that had a fortune that said "Help! I'm trapped in here and they force me to write fortunes for pizza."

That's the most worthless fortune ever. Everyone gets new clothes sometime unless they're a bum or a cheapskate.

if they both have lottery numbers and they match, then you should go buy it. ;)

Decent, actually. There is one woman that writes most of the fortunes sold in the fortune cookies in the USA. The company she works for is the main supplier to all areas. Saw something about it on TV a while back.

I get those with smilies, too.
