In-baked Fortune Cookie

Truly metaphorical cookie
 
(+1, -1)

[newser] almost gave me this idea.

They say that only when you die and reach heaven do you learn the meaning of life. They say that only by breaking a piggybank can you retrieve the money inside. And they say that only when you reach the top of the mountain can you tell if it was worth the climb.

Finally, a cookie that represents all this - a fortune cookie with the fortune printed on the inner dough of the cookie. Not on a half-sticking-out slip of paper that you can remove with your fingernails.

Read your fortune if you must, but you must break nature's most divine creation - the sweet cookie - to get it. Feel the poignancy as you piece the fragments together to read what might have been, but that is now lost forever.

       Need a fortune cookie shredder?

       Doesn't make sense. Breaking a cookie doesn't make it worthless. Try the inside of a faberge egg or something.

       Or a real egg. Tyson Chicken can have a contest like Pepsi -- break an egg, see the serial # inside, win a chicken farm

       Jutta, this is metaphorical. You don't need a faberge egg for it to be metaphorical.

       This is way too deep for me. Just take an MRI scanner or something else that detects the paint at high resolition to read it non destructive. But then, before climbing that metaphoric mountain I would go up there with a helicopter to check if its worth the climb or at least read a travel guide.

       What is worthless is biting into a muffin and finding it's all doughy and liquid inside. That should be a metaphor of something.

       When you learn the meaning of life, you die--not the other way around.

       Cookie + steam = intact fortune.

       Since when this become some metaphor site? Can we get back to the ideas please?

       If you die halfway up the mountain, you'll know it wasn't worth it.
