It's like what Forrest Gump said about that box of chocolates, fortune cookies are basically life. So when people are opening a fortune cookie, they're basically experiencing life (<---- this is bullsh*t). But the funniest and greatest fortune cookie fails come from either accidental Engrish (false, Asian-inspired, incorrect English), typos, or people trying to pull of jokes that just don't work. 

So here, all in one place, are the worst fortune cookies (or the best fortune cookie fortunes, if you like hilariously terrible ones) of all time. 

These are the funniest fortune cookie fails, or funny fortune cookie fortunes, that the Internet has to offer. Upvote the best fortune cookies and downvote the ones you think are either Photoshopped (though I tried to avoid that completely) or lame.

<![CDATA[Clothing Brands That Last Forever]]> http://ranker.com/list/quality-clothing-brands/werner-brandes Listen up: it's time to get serious about your wardrobe and you need to invest in quality clothing brands that last. After all, who wants to spend money on clothes that won't last? We know that $20 tank you got on sale was your summer staple, but let's be real: you wore it for three months straight and now the fit is all wonky, the cotton is now piling, and there are mysterious holes everywhere. All things considered, it's pretty much guaranteed that your favorite clothes will have some wear and tear; after all, you're adventurous, why shouldn't your clothes reflect that? That being said, there are some good clothing brands that are a step above the rest when it comes to quality, and not all of these high-quality clothing brands have to break the bank!

Zara, for instance, is great for affordable, stylish, options and their quality is considered universally great considering their reasonable prices. Got some money to burn? Consider some of the pricey high quality clothing brands that we've listed; while their initial prices might make you do a double-take, their high quality guarantees that you're making a long-term investment that will most definitely pay off over time. Plus who doesn't love having a go-to coat or pair of jeans that just get better with age?

The best part about some of these brands? While we can say that all of the top quality brands we've listed are sure to last you a few years, some of the brands such as Patagonia and L.L. Bean, offer a lifetime guarantee warranty. You read that right, the clothing is so high quality it will last you for life (with some even offering a lifetime return policy, no matter the damage). So get ready people, these high quality brands will have you charging up that credit card in no time. On your mark, get set, SHOP!

The easiest thing to do is smile, just like a young Jennifer Lawrence or Beyoncé. Posing for photos takes practice before getting it perfect.

In case you want to look more serious in your picture, then take a tip from Matt Damon, Zac Efron, or Natalie Portman. Having a bad day? There's no need to worry.

Why do they do this? Probably for attention, but the REAL result of these soggy teenagers' contributions provides endless entertainment for others.
 
What are people hoping to gain from posting a picture of themselves crying? Maybe their ex-lover will see it and take them on a pity date. Maybe their parents will try to be more understanding with them. Maybe the kids at school will stop their bullying. Probably not, though.

At any rate, take a look at these crying selfies and rate which ones are the saddest. By which we obviously mean most lame. Try to guess what's causing their tears, it's fun!

Why the hell would anyone like clowns? Sure, they're talented performers and entertainers that come from a long line of skilled professionals who hone their craft and deserve a lot of respect, but they're really damn terrifying and most of the time they're really annoying. 

Anyway, scary clowns are a huge part of popular culture, and while clowning is an art form in of itself, like with most art, the vast majority of clowns are absolutely terrible, and give clowning a bad name. Which is why everyone hates clowns. Your friends aren't all "oh hey, let's go see a clowning show this weekend." "Yeah! Let's go see a bunch of clowns and stuff." "That sounds great!" 

Nobody likes clowns. Here are fifty reasons that the world hates clowns. Hate runs deep for them everywhere and with circuses dwindling, the art form is slowly dying too, which is sad. But for some, this news provides a calming, wonderful, zen-like relief. 

And another thing. They're STRANGERS. Kids are taught left and right not to trust strangers. And what is a clown, but the most TERRIFYING STRANGER YOU'VE EVER SEEN. Stupid clowns.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Romantic Comedies of All Time]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-romantic-comedies-of-all-time/all-genre-movies-lists Romantic comedy is one of the oldest and most popular film genres of all time. The term "romantic comedy" can refer to pretty much any funny love story, but more specifically, it applies to movies that are light-heartened and fun to watch, and that reinforce the theme of true love conquering all. Very often, romantic comedy plots are driven by couples meeting and falling for one another, only to be forced apart by circumstance, and needing to find their way back to one another.

Almost every romantic comedy film ends with the main characters happily in love, or at least implies that, even if the primary relationship didn't work out, it has taught the lovers enough to be able to go out and find love elsewhere.

What are the best RomComs of all time? Romantic comedy is also among the most diverse and malleable genres, and has been melded and mashed-up with just about every other type of movie. The films of Judd Apatow, for example, combine romantic comedy elements with character types borrowed from "dude" comedies and stoner comedies. Romantic comedies with science-fiction or fantasy elements are also popular, such as the superhero parody My Super Ex-Girlfriend, the time travel romance Kate and Leopold or the Mel Gibson vehicle What Women Want.

This list includes the best romantic comedy films ever made. Have a few selections that didn't make the list? Add them to the bottom of the page! And don't forget to vote up all of your favorites.

What if we could bring stuff like toy swords, horse masks, print t-shirts, wigs, and really whatever we wanted to yearbook picture day? The only people who are going to share them at this point are your parents via picture frames IN YOUR OWN HOUSE! 

So, why not take a ridiculous picture with a dumb shirt that makes you look like an a-hole? Or why not get the yearbook laughs instead of sticking to the unnecessary propriety prescribed to everyone on picture day? This isn't the '50s, or LinkedIn. These are pictures that your peers will see and that you'll look back on one day to remember how awkward you looked. 

I always tried to sneak in a crazy face during picture day. Not an insane face that would obviously be unprintable (because, in my day, all the pictures were physical and there was no "digital package"), but one that'd skate by just enough to get the photos I wanted. That way you could trade pictures with a cute girl, and they wouldn't immediately throw it away during recess. 

From a time where this stuff mattered to parents a lot more, here are the best, funny picture day pictures or yearbook photos ever taken of kids who wanted to be a little different, or who unassumingly messed up their picture by doing something accidentally, which is that much more hilarious.

Some days they mope and cry like the rest of us.

Somedays superheroes are emo too. Cast your votes for the most emo superhero moments below.

<![CDATA[The All-Time Most Surprising Acquittals]]> http://ranker.com/list/the-all-time-most-surprising-acquittals/alby-thompson While few not guilty verdicts will be remembered more than the one issued in the OJ Simpson murder trial, the most surprising acquittals include celebrities, mothers, athletes, singers, and disgruntled housewives who have escaped charges when nearly everyone thought they were dead guilty. From the child molestation charges against Michael Jackson to the child murder claims against Casey Anthony, to the infamous case against penis-chopper Lorena Bobbitt, each of these cases provide plenty of shock and awe, not to mention media coverage, as they played out.

Though these famous people have escaped their charges, an equally notable number have been found guilty, such as the top 8 professional athletes convicted of murder and the many rappers who've spent time in prison for one reason or another.

Take a look at this list and vote for the most shocking acquittal of them all.

MERICA! F*CK YEAH! These are the fine people who contribute to the MURICA subreddit and make the United States of America an even finer place to be...HAHAHAHA J/K, we all know there's no way to make 'Murica any better. Murica owns the moon, the seas, and the Super Bowl; you know, all the important stuff.

Seems like a whole lot of patriotism pops up around Merican holidays like the 4th of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day and such, and these are the best of those Murica pictures, memes, and dialogues here for your viewing pleasure as a real patriot. 'MURICA.

<![CDATA[65 People Who Texted The Wrong Number At The Wrong Time]]> http://ranker.com/list/funny-wrong-number-texts/ariel-kana We've all received some kind of funny wrong number text here and there. Maybe a person who didn't know they were given a fake number at a bar, or someone who honestly made a mistake, but sent a really embarrassing picture, or maybe even someone aggressively threatening you out of the blue, scaring the crap out of you and scarring you until they let you know that you're not the person they originally meant to harass. Either way, there's nothing not hilarious about a wrong-number text. Screencaps have come in from all walks of life to places like Reddit, Tumblr, 4Chan, and the like documenting the beauty of the wrong number accident text. 

The beauty of the mistaken number text lies in that it's not a phone call. Previously, when someone dialed a wrong number, they knew it immediately when either they failed to recognize the voice of the person on the other end or when they decided, once and for all, that yes, this was definitely a stranger. And at that point, the interaction was over. Everyone knew when they'd made a mistake. 

Now, when people text the wrong person, they won't know for a good long while that it wasn't their new friend, co-worker, or potential date they just sent that selfie to, but a complete stranger. 

The best is when those strangers choose to screw with the people sending the texts. This is a list of the best examples of that exact thing happening. 

These are the funniest wrong text screencaps in Internet history.

Where was the population of America when two planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers and a third plane crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11? It is a "day that will live in infamy." It was an event that brought the nation and international community together in solidarity and propelled the United States into an era of foreign wars and economic hardship. Most Americans remember where they were when they first heard about the 9/11 attacks. Some were witnesses to 9/11, while others were just waking up on the West Coast, driving to work or sitting in class.

Do you remember where you were on 9/11? Vote for the location where you first heard about September 11th, were watching the coverage on TV or listening to it on the radio. Add the location where you were if it is not listed.

Your flatmates, roommates, dormmates, RAs, and floormates aren't your parents and don't care about your space anymore than you care about theirs. Funny college signs adorn the halls as much as you would expect them to in a building full of people looking out for themselves and slowly learning that common courtesy isn't the norm as much as doing as much as you can get away with is. All these passive-aggressive college notes and even notes from teachers are what happen when you trap people, many of whom are even *shiver* single children, in a giant complex built out of inadequate carpeting and RULES. 

These are the best, most memorable, and funniest college dorm signs the internet has to offer. From ones you've seen a million times to the passive aggressive notes you've missed throughout the years because you have a semblance of a life and need to pay attention at work occasionally. 

My favorites are the ones written by people who have very hard "rules" that cannot UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BE VIOLATED. Some reasonable, some absolutely ridiculous, reading these should either give you a great idea about what you can't do if you live in college, what to do if someone is messing with you in your dorms, or it should do what it did for me and just make you super happy that you're an actual adult and not in college anymore. 

Now, some of you may have roommates like these, and some of the notes may serve as solutions for you. For those of you with that predicament, I hope that you will move somewhere better soon.

Stay strong, and try never to be "one of those people" who leaves horrible, threatening, spiteful, vengeful, or aggressive university notes on people's walls. Even anonymously. You're better than that. Which is why this list is so awesome. Enjoy.

<![CDATA[The Craziest Celebrity Wardrobe Malfunctions of 2014]]> http://ranker.com/list/celebrity-wardrobe-malfunctions-2014/ericascheidt Ahh, the celebrity wardrobe malfunction. A phrase coined back in 2004 during that one Super Bowl halftime performance (you know which one were talking about), that continues to haunt celebrities on the daily. While us mere mortals would probably blush a little bit about a nip slip or our skirts flying up due to a sudden breeze, celebrities have to deal with seeing their private bits splashed across the front page of every newspaper if their couture makes the slightest slip-up (or slip-down, for that matter). But even if we feel bad, we can't help but be curious as to which celebrities had wardrobe malfunctions in 2014?

Even though it's extremely embarrassing for the celebrities, we can't deny that the celebrity wardrobe malfunction and the celebrity nip slip has become quite a spectacle. While sometimes were not sure if celebrity wardrobe malfunctions are planned (*cough* Super Bowl) or are just unfortunate mishaps, we have to say that it is strangely humanizing to see A-list stars make a mistake with their wardrobe choices. So instead of making fun of the celebrities that we have compiled on this list, let's celebrate their bodies and their wardrobe malfunctions! They're human, they're beautiful, and a little nipple never hurt nobody. We've compiled the best celebrity wardrobe malfunctions that happened in 2014; enjoy and remember, the wardrobe malfunction can happen to anybody.

People making faces to make the selfies funny, exaggerating backgrounds, or including people that aren't a part of the moment are the entire reason that really all selfies are failures, when it comes to good photography. But then there are the hilarious selfies that are actually entertaining. When something goes wrong, a selfie is truly at its best: pictures of people taking selfies at funerals, accidentally including a toilet or someone going to the bathroom while you're trying to look sexy, catching your mom showering while you're sending a sext, and sometimes even animals get into the mix. 

Here are the 100 funniest selfie FAILs in the history of the Internet, from the Ellen Degeneres's Oscars selfie fail where Liza Minnelli tries to get into the photo but doesn't, to the one where a camel almost bites a girl's head off, to the video of the couple where they almost got struck by lightning. Or people getting gorged by bulls.

But mostly, just people with horrible, terrible, no good, very bad taste. These are the worst selfies that the Internet hast to offer. Upvote the biggest selfie fails, downvote the ones which are okay.

<![CDATA[FAIL! The Worst Lyrics From U2's Songs Of Innocence]]> http://ranker.com/list/worst-lyrics-songs-of-innocence-u2-new-album/ariel-kana The new U2 album that was pretty much forced onto iTunes users when the 2014 Apple Keynote Event happened caught everyone by surprise... but not so much in a good way. Twitter was riddled with complaints about U2's new album Songs Of Innocence even being in their library. Mostly because nobody likes U2 anymore since they've produced maybe two good songs in the last decade or so. They've gone the way of old guys who're still making music that can fill up stadiums, but nobody's heart. Like Coldplay does now. Anyway, after giving this album a truly honest, actual try (I mean, it was free so why not?), I realized why people were so angry. 

This album really, really, really sucks. But more shocking than anything else is the idea that this album, really plainly called Songs Of Innocence was written by a grown man. Like, a grown ostensibly intelligent man with a lot of philanthropy and a "Man of Peace" award under his belt. What the hell? The lyrics are like that of a high school student who doesn't pay attention in English on that day where the teacher makes you think up and write out different kinds of poems while in class.

So, I thought it'd be good to put these lyrics together along with pictures of Bono to emphasize how ludicrous it is that a grown man would have these thoughts, then put them on an album with songs that are supposed to make people feel emotions. 

You can tell they're phoning it in. 

These are the absolute worst lyrics on Songs of Innocence. Every song has at least one terrible lyric. Even the "short" ones. 

The lyrics on U2's new album Songs of Innocence were probably written by an automatic-lyric machine that they give to stadium rock gods after having performed for over 15 years.

BILLIONS of dollars, finally start providing health care to their transgender employees, something beyond your basic, non-discriminatory protections. Well, this list contains companies doing just that-- providing transgender resources-- so if I were you, I'd save up all your pennies and spend them at these businesses since they seem to have the right idea. Human Rights Watch keeps tabs on the equality practices of all businesses and assigns them a score, called the Corporate Equality Index. All of the businesses listed here have a perfect, 100% CEI score. 
 
Transgender people were born with male or female sex organs that do not match their inner sense of gender. Up until recently, many companies denied health coverage to transgender folks, even if the medically-needed attention was not even regarding their sexy bits. Finally, that is changing! Transgender and genderfluid celebrities are calling attention to this group of people and their unique position. Many people would say that transgender rights are the next frontier of human rights, so educate yourself!

We got the new iWatch, which is just a watch that has the functions of an iPod Nano with more apps, two new iPhones which are slightly bigger than the iPhone you already have, a new iOS which will stop your girlfriend from checking your texts, and most importantly, a way for you to pay for everything with a quick, mobile solution: Apple Pay! 

On the heels of the biggest celebrity data hacking of all time in iCloud, where your most sensitive information would ostensibly be stored, Apple decides to also become a payment solution as well. 

Sure, there were lots of people who tried to use the Google Wallet and all those other similar devices that try and do exactly what Apple "premiered" today, but this is Apple. People don't really care what already exists until they make it shiny. 

So, from the release date of the iPhone 6, to pictures of the new Apple Watch, to details on the identity-theft-ready Apple Pay, people had a lot to say about how terrible this year's Apple keynote address was.

<![CDATA[The Dirtiest NFL Players of All Time]]> http://ranker.com/list/dirtiest-nfl-players-of-all-time/prosportsextra The dirtiest NFL players of all time are some of the meanest and most hated men to ever play professional football. You probably won't see these current and former National Football League players earning any sportsmanship awards anytime soon but there's a good chance their names will be in the news for bone-crushing hits, injuries and losing their tempers on the football field.

Each year several sports media outlets asks the NFL players themselves which current player they see as the dirtiest. In recent years, names like longtime Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward and and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong "Donkey Kong" Suh have been selected by their peers as the dirtiest. With both players having nasty on-and-off-field incidents to their credit, the selections are not undeserved.

But dirty play is nothing new in the NFL. In fact, many of the dirtiest NFL players of all time are from many decades ago. Conrad Dobler, an offensive lineman who played from 1972 to 1981, bit, hit, kicked and spit on opposing players, including an incident where he punched fellow tough guy and one of the greatest defenders in NFL history Mean Joe Greene. Johnny Sample is another long retired player who earned the reputation for dirty play. The defensive back in the 1950s and 60s even named his autobiography "Confessions of a Dirty Ballplayer."

While professional football is and will probably always be a violent sport, these dirty NFL players took that to another scary level. Vote for the NFL players you think are the dirtiest below or add any that are missing. Think these guys are bad? Check out the most shocking NFL scandals too.

If the proclivities of Prince William and his own brother, Prince Harry, play into the temperament of the child in any way, the 2nd royal baby ought to be a little on the wild side, should that shape the way you vote on what the royal baby's name should be.

There are clear front runners when asking "What will the royal baby's name be?" Among them are Diana for a girl, calling to Prince William's late mother, Lady Diana of Spencer. They could also honor the current Queen, Elizabeth, if the royal baby is a girl. If another boy is born, they could perhaps honor William's father, Prince Charles (since he'll probably never see the throne at the rate the current Queenie is livin') or perhaps look to others of royal lineage and pick something like James or Timothy. Whatever Wills and Kate may be thinking at this point, there are A LOT of royal baby names to pick from.

What should Will and Kate's second baby be named? Cast your vote now!
