We decided to splurge on Chinese take-out tonight, and of course we got a fortune cookie. I opened mine up, and this is what it said:
Say what? I’ve seen cryptic fortunes before, but this one was particularly puzzling. And stupid. I scratched my head over it a bit, thinking, “but does money really change everything?” and “how do I change the money? You mean like getting a roll of quarters?” Then I wondered what this has to do with me, or any customer for vegetable fried rice.
Then I flipped it over.
Jesus. FTX, the bankrupt cryptocurrency outfit, was promoting itself by marketing fucking fortune cookies? No wonder they crashed and burned.
The cookie wasn’t very good, either. Stale. I wonder how long China Panda will be serving bad financial advice with their cookies?
