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
Step 2: Get It Out
In this step, you need to cut the cookie out of the package. Sounds easy, but there are many methods to removing it. Let me give you the pros and cons of each.
Cut a Small Slit on The Back <-- My personal favorite and method shown in pictures.
The down side is that it is pretty obvious if whoever is eating it gives it a good look. The upside is that people barely ever give it a good look and when they do they look at the front and the two ends you normally open it from.
Open it Normally and Crazy Glue it Back Together
Upside is that this is easy and looks normal. Downside is that it raises suspicions when they can't open it.
Tear it To Shreds
Upside: Gets the cookie out quickly.
Downside: Difficult to make it look untampered with.
In the pictures I show you the slit in the back method. Just cut a small slit in the back, and carefully remove the cookie!
Step 3: Tweezer Time
Carefully slip the tweezers into the cookie from one of the sides and carefully extract the fortune. I found that once you get any of the fortune out of the cookie using the tweezers, that it is best to transfer the fortune from the tweezers to your hand and finish the removal manually.
