Things that deserve the stink-eye:

Maybe I'm judging too quickly. Perhaps this is not a fortune cookie fail; perhaps there's some hidden message? Here's my thought process:

1. Who are the "people?"
2. What are they trying to do?
3. Whose "thing" is referenced here?
4. Why do the "people" lack motivation?
5. What does this infer about the future?
6. Did Yoda write this?
7. Is Dr. Seuss involved? (Thing 1?)
8. What happened to Thing 2?
9. Is this some sort of hooked on phonics advertising campaign?
10. Is it just me or does this make complete sense when I imagine Sofia Vergara saying it?

Ohh yeah, when Sofia's voice said it in my head it was complete coherent!

Makes sense to me.

Lorraine said...

I got a dirty vibe off of it.

Like...

People try thing (winkwinkwink) because they just don't want it (WINK) enough.

No?

Officially the weirdest fortune I have ever seen.

"Thing" is obviously a code word. Have you stumbled across an old spy fortune cookie left over from the Cold War? I just saw "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" so anything is possible. Trust no one.

I think it's either a translation fail, or they've run out of ideas and are now just stringing random words together.

Outsourced fortune. Good luck.

Shana said...

SubRadarMike had the right idea, I think!

People try THING

only one.
I liked Lorraines comment (tee,hee)

I NEED FORTUNE COOKIE CLOSURE! I TRY THING TO FIND CLOSURE!

No, it's bugging me...I want to make it fit our lives.

My most recent and possibly weirder fortune cookie: "Made in the USA"

I think Yoda did have a hand in this.

We already know how he feels about "trying" to do something. Taking that into consideration, we can surmise that if you "try" a thing rather than "do" or "do not" said thing, then you obviously lack the proper motivation.

Hmmm...

Paul McCormick said...

I'm with Vinny, stop trying, start doing.

Maybe instead of trying to write fortunes they should start doing it.

I can't believe you are criticizing the fortune cookie that I wrote ...

Munk said...

Not to worry... I'm sure you want it enough.
