The Contented Man Is He Who Loves Himself …In Bed

In the heart of Seattle’s Chinatown International District there is a small bakery called Tsue Chong Noodle Company. Founded by Louie Gar Hip in 1917, it is most famous for its delicious fortune cookies. You know you have a Tsue Chong fortune cookie if the fortune has a rose on the left side (like those shown below).

You can purchase a bag of about 60 fortune cookies for less than two-and-a-half bucks, which is precisely what I did a few days ago. Since then, we’ve been having a blast playing the fortune cookie game, in which you simply add “in bed” to the end of your fortune. A selection of the immensely humorous results is shown below. It’s amazing how two words can completely change the meaning of a sentence.

UPDATE: It seems there is a problem with the "extra large" picture embedding, so if you cannot see the image below, here is a link directly to the image itself. I sincerely hope VOX fixes this bug soon.

    Aaaaaaaagh! This happens all the effing time and every time I tell VOX about it, they tell me they can see the image just fine. It seems to be a problem with the "extra large" feature.Here's a link to the image itself. Damn. Pain in the ass.

    [this is good….in bed] heehee…I love the fortune cookie game! But you have to eat the whole cookie first before reading….otherwise your fortune will not come true…in bed! LOL! 🙂

  7. We do this. While we are all giggling and yelling "IN BED" I have one friend who always ends his with "between the sheets" in his lovely northern English accent… makes it sound SO un-dirty!

    Heehee. We had a game in school once, where we had to whisper the names
    of various movies in our friends' ears, and then that person calls out
    the name of the movie with the added phrase "in pink pajamas." The
    results were hilarious.

    "Theres Something About Mary in my pink pajamas"
    "The Lost World in my pink pajamas'"
    "Pretty Woman in my pink pajamas"….

    You ACTUALLY got the, "bitter, deceptive or petty," one in your batch?! That's awesome.
