Mostly, I order out for Chinese. By the time I get to opening the cookies, their fortunes are as soggy as the cookies. I get the fortunes that say learn Chinese on the other side...they're kind of cute.
As far back as the 19th century, a cookie very similar in appearance to the modern Fortune cookie was made in Kyoto, Japan, and there is a Japanese temple tradition of random fortunes, called omikuji....... Most of the people who claim to have introduced the cookie to the United States are Japanese, so the theory is that these bakers were modifying a cookie design which they were aware of from their days in Japan.
Fortune cookies aside, I hate the Chinese..! I'm taking a break right now from trying to assemble one of their damn BBQ rotisserie sets...NOTHING FITS!!
I have to drill two holes in the side of the BBQ itself to make the rod level with the motor attachment...The parts inventory does not include a wooden handle, just a rod ending with threading..! The instructions are quasi-English and show no difference between screw sizes...Instructions end with this admonition: Please to keep hand off motor when cocked...Huh !!!
HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Im sorry to laugh. But two years ago I got my husband a bbq for fathers day. The assembled version would not fit in my van, and I thought that assembly would require putting the bottom half onto the top half. Like..stick the legs on and be done.
I was sooo very wrong and to make a long story short, I ended up with a fat lip, a scrape over my right eye, and I got the bottom part of the grill backwards so the propane tank doesnt sit right.
Yeah - you go right ahead and blame the Chinese for selling poor quality goods that are demanded by Walmart for poor Americans to buy because you have no work because your own shops import the rubbish from China instead of the good stuff that Chinese buy
