Ok, this is a most interesting fortune cookie:

“If your cookie still in one piece, buy lotto.”

Hmm, what cookie is this referring to? And why should I buy lotto?

So I start to think that this is likely a computer-generated garbage fortune — i.e. the artificial intelligence makes no f*ckin sense!

Anyway, you will be fascinated to know that the modern fortune cookie with the paper fortune inside the hollow of the cookie was invented in California.

However, the Japanese put something like this in the bend of the cookie already in the 19th century.

Using this fortune as an example, I have this gnawing feeling that the Japanese fortunes had a lot more intellectual substance to them.

Anyway, someone tell this lame cookie fortune teller that Lotto is way out and Powerball is in and where the real winnings are. ;-)
