Last night my fortune cookie said “You will soon be made an offer you can’t refuse.”
What odd fortunes have you guys gotten?

"If you keep silent, no one can misquote you."

Considering I'm a journalist, I'd say that's pretty off. That one's hanging above my desk.

Lately I haven't gotten real fortunes. They're more like life lessons like "happiness comes from doing for others" or something like that.

I've kept several over the past few years. My favorite is from the night before I closed the deal for buying a competitor and opening a new store in that location - "You will do well to expand your business."

And the other, though silly, one is "You are about to be $6.95 poorer. $8.95 if you had the buffet." It was only partially accurate as the dinner buffet is $12.95. :)

I kept another, but I can't recall what it is at the moment.

'You will be a lawyer.' Which, I think, works much better if you add the mandatory '...in bed.'

Before you were born, I was in New Orleans and go "You will have a new love affair."
When I got back, the first time I ate out with my girlfriend, I got "Disregard previous fortune." Girlfriend is now wife.

Sometimes I suggest 'decoding' fortunes by appending the words "...between the sheets." This is especially fun at an office lunch with lots of folks. However, the first time I suggested this, an old bachelor at the table turned beet red and wouldn't read his fortune. One of the women snatched it from his hand and read "He who fears failure will never succeed greatly"

At which point everyone was embarassed.
