List Rules Upvote the best, most funny fortune cookies, downvote the ones that are generally unremarkable.

Fortune cookies are always a gamble. 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. But the funniest and greatest fortune cookie fails come from either accidental Engrish (false, Asian-inspired, incorrect English), typos, or people trying to pull off 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 that the Internet has to offer. Upvote the best fortune cookies and downvote the ones you think are either Photoshopped or lame.
