The next time you have Chinese food, check out the back of the fortune cookie wrapper. Chances are, if an address is listed, it's from Brooklyn. Most fortune cookies come from Brooklyn. Seriously. I know it sounds like a joke. Some cookies have no address given, but when they do have one, it's for a company in Brooklyn.
Yeah, the irony is obvious, but I'll say it anyway: in an age when all of our products are manufactured in China, our Chinese fortune cookies are manufactured in America. Logic would suggest then that Chinese people are born in America while American people are born in China. That makes we in America actually China and THAT then means that WE are the world's up-and-coming economic powerhouse and superpower! Woo hoo! U-S-A! U-S-A!
