The truth about fortune cookies

Posted September 10, 2008

New York Times reporter Jennifer Lee has a revelation: Fortune cookies mystify the Chinese!  She has the video evidence!

We've been hoodwinked!  When you finish your Chinese meal and open your fortune cookie, you can be the withering curmudgeon (a favorite role of mine) and tell everyone at the table how the Chinese have nothing to do with fortune cookies!

Every sentence in this blogpost ends with an exclamation point!

    I recommend Jennifer Lee's book called The Fortune Cookie Chronicles. You will learn more about Americanized Chinese food than you thought possible.
