Confucius Say...

Or maybe it was Dr. Ruth? Either way, attendees at a children's fundraiser in New York last week got a real treat when they broke open their fortune cookies. The host, Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz, intended the cookies to contain messages like "Brooklyn--the 10th planet" or "Brooklyn--it's like an everything bagel." Instead, some 350 fortunes (out of 1,750) turned out to be "graphically lurid." Yes, due to some mix-up, the guests were served porno-fortune cookies.

"They were not cutesy. Triple-X to say the least," said Markowitz. Still, I'd take them over the usual mundane ones ("You are patient in times of trouble," "You enjoy traveling," "You are kind to strangers," "You like Chinese food").

And at the very least, the guests probably didn't have to add the words "in bed."

Come to think of it, what *would* be a good Brooklyn/porno combo? Time for a Galleyslaves invitational?
