No silly! Not that kind of fortune! I'm talking about the kind of fortune that comes in a cookie. In my opinion everything is better when cookies are involved. I did this on April Fools Day to prank everyone (We got Chinese food. They were begging for trouble) in my family. I unfortunately never got around to documenting it until now. It's probably too late to get anywhere in the April Fools contest which, correct me if I'm wrong, goes entirely on user votes. Oh well, on to the project!

Step 1: Your Materials

This is pretty easy. You don't need much to change a fortune. All you need is:

A fortune cookie (Duh?)


Tweezers (Preferably very small)

Not Shown But Also Important!

A Computer and Printer

A drop of very clear glue OR clear tape
<p>you have to post a video of how one of these turned out in action.</p>
I find it funny how the fortune says &quot;A cautious person leaves no stones unturned&quot; and we're trying to prevent that.
the best fortune ever... from &quot;Roccos modern life&quot; (a cartoon)<br /> <br /> Bad luck and extreme misfortune will haunt your pathetic soul for all eternity<br />
Actually my friend told me about a really good one! It said: <br>Error 404 - Fortune Not Found <br> <br>GEEK HUMOR!!!! This is a great Idea! I will definitely have to use this!
No, my friend got a better one once:<br>You will eat another fortune cookie.
best show EVAR!!!
&nbsp;I love that show!
I have the BEST fortune here :D : That wasn't chicken....
I prefer the last option to get it out.&nbsp; Then I get hungry and eat the cookie.<br />
awesome...... this is so cool
Very nice prank my family gos out to at chinese Places quite often so this will work good &lt;(<sup>_</sup>)&gt;<br/>
poor john!
Ha! Reminded me of when I proposed to my wife. I opened a Cracker Jacks box at the bottom, removed the "surprise", carefully opened the little bag & removed the toy, put in the ring w/ a note something like "I don't know you, but Will You Marry Me?", and got the whole thing back together. I suggest not to try that at home. I proposed to my second wife along those lines, but using a KinderEgg. I now live alone in my small apartment. Memories, Like the corners of my mind, Misty water-colored memories.....
I did this years ago. If you put the cookie in the microwave it will soften it. Then you insert the fortune. Reshape the cookie and you are good to go.
We have these hot sealers for home use. You just insert two AA batteries and clamp it on the plastic. It'd work wonders on this.
did you get it online?
I found one at wal-mart for $4.00.
Yeah, my dad bought some spontaneously off<br/><br/>GraysOnline.com.au<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.handysealer.com/main/">http://www.handysealer.com/main/</a> is the website home, it's called Handy Sealer.<br/>
how much did you pay?
I'm not sure, the way GraysOnline works, is they sell a lot of stock that was supposed to be exported/imported but orders got cancelled etc. Example, we buy Wine which costs upward of $20-30 for &gt;$10, usually about $5. And all these Wines are Aussie made too. However I don't think they ship to Americas and stuff.<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://search.ebay.com/handy-sealer_W0QQ_trksidZm37QQfromZR40">http://search.ebay.com/handy-sealer_W0QQ_trksidZm37QQfromZR40</a><br/>;)<br/>
i know where to get them for 3.39 + free shipping thats why i was asking emo-child
Hehe, I've used that image since about 2005 for internet communities everywhere. I'm not actually emo, nowhere near it.
i guessed you wouldn't be offended b/c your not emo that image i have, a microdrive, taken apart by yours truly it is out of a $100 mp3 player
Sweet, did you actually do anything with it?
Not really, just for kix and pictures the player's firmware crashed, and there was no way to fix it... not all i need is a new microdrive, i still have the parts if i ever find the right HDD
That sounds cool... and useful.
I think this is a great idea. I'm going to use it on my kids at some point (6 & 8 1/2) reminding them of the importance of sharing or being kind. I think it will freak them out a bit especially the 8 1/2 year old that is currently reading Harry Potter books.
Haha. Thank you very much. Tell me how it goes!
and... the added fact that crazy glue wont taste good
Awesome!<br/>You have a leatherman... my mom barely even lets me have an X-acto knife!<br/><br/><sub>Which I lost...</sub><br/>+1 vote and rating.<br/>
I have both of those and a WWII dagger
omg, i have 3 shotguns an m-42 yugoslavian war rifle 2 machetes 8 bowie knives, slingshots, yummy pancakes, so many 10/22 guns to count, a glock .40 caliber made in Austria <sup></sup>, 4 samurai swords, a couple of bo shurikens, and around 20 pocket knives, all for nice, fun hunting or recreational use. did i mention 7 pellet guns?<br/>
yummy pancakes?
are you asking me if i am yummy pancakes? no, i am not so immature, which is no offence as it can be a good quality to some
Oh my gosh I have like six different knives, 3 pellet guns, and complete access of all my Dad's power tools.
X-acto?? Multi-tools and utility knives are where it's at!
I lost one of my X-acto knives too...It was sitting on the counter and the next day it was gone! But I have two others....Except I need new blades for them...
It's my dad's leatherman but he lets me use it a lot. He doesn't have much use for it so I get to use it pretty much whenever I need to :-). Thanks for the vote and rating. Oh, and sorry about your knife. X-Acto knifes are more useful than you realize until you lose one. I know from experience :-(.
i think it is very funny that you let the cookie sit on the carpet in your house lol, i imagin that the person you gave it to ate it? lol
lol, i heard if u microwave the cookie, it softens up and then u can take the fortune out and put another one in it before it hardens...personally i havent tried it but my friend said she has...she also said she burned it too.
ha very creative and would make a great prank! love it! +1 rating +1 vote (favorited)
That's great man, i voted. I can't wait for chinese food :D
Awesome, I hope you get something out of this. +1 +1vote
Nice idea - you just need to make sure the right person gets the right cookie! What other fortunes did you make? I am curious to know what other funny stuff you came up with!
Haha. Thanks.<br/>Here's one I gave to my friend who's really cheap:<br/><em>Cooper, for good luck in the new year, pay for your friend's dinners.</em><br/><br/>I just made stuff like that.<br/>
Whoops. Mis-entered the punctuation there. Friends'. Not Friend's. It actually changes the meaning a lot when you think about it. Haha.
