A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

This is a picture of Kenzie's fortune out of her fortune cookie from lunch yesterday.  There are two things disturbing about this.

1.  Blatant disregard for grammar.  What's next?  A watched pot don't never do boil?  Absolute power corrupts most totally?  Absence makes the heart grow more better fonder? The lack of editorial oversight in the fortune cookie industry is troubling.  Also, I'm starting to suspect that fortunes aren't really written by wise old men in China.

2.  That is a bite mark.  There is a bite mark out of the fortune because my daughter didn't have the patience to let me take out the fortune about patience before she bit into her cookie.  I guess in her world,  all good things come not to he who waits, but he who bites the cookie first.  A more appropriate  fortune might have been don't bite the hand that feeds you.
