I once was out to a chinese restaurant with some of my friends. When we were finished, we got our fortune cookies. This dialogue occurred:

A: "I got "A stranger is a friend you haven't met yet", and you?"
B: "I got "A smile is a free way to improve your day" How boring."
Me: "I got "This piece of papers grants two times free of wasing dishes!", LoL!"
A & B: *burst out in laughter"

I have a photo, if requested. (So: No "Pix or it didn't happen!")

We all have benn textrolled!

Dammit, now I'm suffixing every advertising slogan I see on banners with "...except in bed."

Norton Antivirus: incredible protection, incredible performance. Except in bed.
Dell: Yours is blue, yours is red, yours is colorful. Except in bed.

I almost stopped reading because I was sure that it was going to turn into a RickRoll comic after reading the first fortune from the left. You never can be too careful these days, especially with Randall.

Edit: Damn. ^ HMC, you beat me too it. Best Rocko's Modern Life episode ever!

Fairly Odd Parents, the episode when Timmy goes in the Internet to get back his threatmantic letter to Trixie. I believe his mom said that.

I went and got Chinese food just for this comic. I had brought lasagana from home, but it can wait in the fridge until tomorrow.

*crinkle-crinkle-crinkle*
*crack*
*munch-munch-munch* (What? I don't believe in reading the fortune until all the cookie is eaten.)
*admire*

"Good things come to those who wait. Be patient." Except in bed.

Edit: correct spelling error.

I love to play this game. And now it's even better.
My friend sent me a text months ago of a fortune he got...
Don't let friends impose on you, work calmly and silently....(except) in bed.

A few months ago, a co-worker of mine got one that said..
Get your mind set...Confidence will lead you on....(except) in bed.
Mine that day was,
You are always welcome in any social gathering..(except) in bed.
Seeing as it's mine, I prefer the original game...

Last week, we got chinese at work.
My co-workers fortune was
Today's the day the try new things....(except) in bed.
I forget what mine was that day...:-(

"You will read this and say....Geez! I could come up with better fortunes than that...(except) in bed."
"First they attack you, then they ignore you, then you win...(except) in bed."
"If your cookie is in 3 pieces, the answer is no...(except) in bed."
"Vacation can wait. Stick to the project 'till the end...(except) in bed."
"Your life becomes more and more of an adventure...(except) in bed."
"You emerge victoriously from the maze you've been traveling in...(except) in bed."
"You have a potential urge and the ability for accomplishment...(except) in bed."

I've saved two fortunes because they seemed oddly specific:

"You have a charming way with words. Write an email to a friend."

"Something on four wheels will soon be a fun investment for you."

The suffixes just don't quite work...

And in regards to hymns "in bed" or whatever - In The Garden. Just... In The Garden.

See, I thought you said "something on four legs", which changed the meaning of that one entirely.

One of my favorite (adult) party games involves thinking up advertising slogans and then adding "between my legs" at the end. It's amazing how often it works!

Am I the only one hurting from the grammar of 'more improved'?

Shouldn't it be 'further improved' or 'improved more' or something?

It was his dad, actually. Man, those damn reruns. I should probably turn on discovery or something, but the only thing I'm really interested in is Mythbusters.

Which reminds me somehow, I once got "In the next five weeks, you will find the man of your dreams." Which is fine and all, except that I'm not gay as far as I know. There should be a squad formed to hunt down the lugnut who did this.

The best fortune cookie I ever had simply said, "You may be laughing now, but wait until you get home." I wish I still had it. I shuddered a little.

Fortune cookies are fine, really, but the actual meal? Sorry, I don't like Chinese.

See, if I was a fortune cookie writer those are the sort of scary, self referring humorous I would write.
All the fortunes I get with my meals are rubbish.

At first I thought you meant just the chorus. But...

Were no strangers to love (except in bed)
You know the rules and so do I (except in bed)
A full commitment's what I'm thinking of (except in bed)
You wouldn't get this from any other guy (except in bed)

I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling (except in bed)
Gotta make you understand (except in bed)

* never gonna give you up (except in bed)
Never gonna let you down (except in bed)
Never gonna run around and desert you (except in bed)
Never gonna make you cry (except in bed)
Never gonna say goodbye (except in bed)
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you (except in bed)

Weve know each other for so long (except in bed)
Your heart's been aching (except in bed)
But youre too shy to say it (except in bed)
Inside we both know what's been going on (except in bed)
We know the game and were gonna play it (except in bed)

And if you ask me how I'm feeling (except in bed)
Don't tell me youre too blind to see (except in bed)

(* repeat) (except in bed)

Give you up. give you up (except in bed)
Give you up, give you up (except in bed)
Never gonna give (except in bed)
Never gonna give, give you up (except in bed)
Never gonna give (except in bed)
Never gonna give, give you up (except in bed)

I've had a fortune lying around that I always touted as being one of the most depressing things to ever come from a Chinese cookie. Thanks to this, it is depressing no longer.

It reads:

"If it seems the fates are against you today, they probably are."

...except in bed.

Booyah!
