Fortune Cookies…

24 Sep


The husbear and I were in Memphis a while back eating at P. F. Chang’s. After quickly consuming our ever-so-tasty meal of Lettuce Wraps and Orange Peel Shrimp, my favorite part of the meal came…FORTUNE COOKIES!! As I’m sure many of you are aware, fortune cookies generally are NOT fortune cookies at all; they are actually Statement Cookies. My Statement Cookie read as follows: “There is never any harm in asking an honest question.” While this is in some cases a very true statement, the husbear brought up a very valid point. What if the ‘honest’ question was “Why are you so fat” or “Why are you so ugly” or “Why do you have that wart on the head of your penis”? Would there be harm in asking these specific questions? I would think so. What are your thoughts? What other questions can you think of that may not be appropriate?

    That is very true, Paul. I don’t know about you, but if someone is really ugly I would like to know why. If he/she is ugly because of some horrible, disfiguring accident then I can accept that. But if he/she is ugly ‘just because’, then I might have an issue with it (joke)…LOL.

    Asking “Why are so ugly?” isn’t a question. It’s a judgmental statement.

    On the other hand. If you don’t ask, you’re likely not to be told. It’s a matter of taking a risk sometimes.
