Simply mix into your local Chinese restaurant's regular fortune cookie supplies, and wait...
Chances are you'll never see the results, but should guarantee a very awkward moment for someone!

       Heh. Very cruel.

       This qualifies for the Product:Weapon category. The scary thing is how indiscriminately the damage is going to be done.

       The paper should still be inside and say "Will you maw we me".

       "Mickey Blue Eyes much (-)"???
Does anyone else understand that?
MikeOliver, Mar 12 2006
  

       Perfectly clear to me. But not having seen the film, no idea if s/he is right.
DrCurry, Mar 13 2006
  

       "NO, EAT COOKIE NOW!!!"   

       or something like that. Best part (well, only good part) of the whole movie.   

       This is the very kind of idea I would give multiple +'s if I could.

       Halfbaked. I know a man who proposed via fortune cookie. The waiters were in on it, but she elected to save it all for snack the next day...

       OK then, I guess I'll have to admit to having seen that film. In an early scene; Hugh Grant, being the permenently befuddled character he is in every single film, puts an engagement ring in a fortune cookie for his girlfriend but it went to the wrong table. There's a notable similarity with this, but I'm guessing [MikeOliver] hasn't seen it.

       Heh. That's a great prank idea. An interesting variation would be for a woman to plant a fake engagement ring into her own cookie. This would give her the opportunity to say yes to her husband, resulting in him knowing that asking her to marry him would result in a yes answer. It would also be a strong hint that maybe he should do so sooner rather than later.   

       Variation 2: Same as above, but woman says no and breaks up with guy. A bit vicious, I admit.

       Ah, I've just remembered why "Mickey Blue Eyes" has anything to do with this: There is a scene where the fortune cookie (with a real engagement ring inside) is delivered to the wrong table. Hilairy ensued.

       Hilairy - isn't she running for President or something?
DrCurry, Mar 15 2006
  

       Oh God, she choking!Somebody do something! That ring is really expensive!
