non-Chinese, fortune cookies are well-known as a
kind of traditional Chinese food. This is not
exactly true. Even though they seem to be very
popular in America, I have never seen these cookies

I came to America, I found that all the Chinese
restaurants had fortune cookies, and it really
though they are not really Chinese, when I get one,

Besides the fortunes, there are often some Chinese
proverbs written on papers inside the cookies, and
