Very simple - fortune-cookie shaped hard tortillas, with fortunes inside. :) Call them "fortillas"! A trendy little gimmick, eh?

       Haha! YES! Exactly!! :D

       Not a fort made of tortillas? Damn, disappointed again (+)

       Forte: Capsaicin, the stuff that turns up the heat in jalapeños, not only causes the tongue to burn, it also drives prostate cancer cells to kill themselves, according to studies published in the March 15 issue of Cancer Research.   

       Just doing my duty of informing the Halfbakery community of the benefits of red hot chili peppers. May we have healthy prostates - our fortune is in tortillas!

       Very Cool.   

       Great first post.

       Methinks we have a newbie-in-disguise, someone who may have been around for a while and got tired of fishbones. Now they post each of their new ideas under a new ID so they're cut a little noob slack, then Kaboom! They hit us with that killer idea and we fawn all over them, inviting them to sit at our table in the lunchroom, giving them our home phone number AND our cell number, even showing them the secret handshake. Oops! I've said too much.

       ([theleopard] Babelfish reports that the last few annotations read: "The one that gets angry, loses.", "The one that vacillates, loses.", "the love conquers all.", "His waiter deserves a great gratuity.", "He reads the other side please.", "Its lucky number is...", "Aid! I am being imprisoned in a factory of fortilla.", "the weasels of the ice will eat their liver.")

I was thinking - couldn't you print, or scorch, the message directly onto the tortilla itself? This would be a good use for all those thermal printers (the kind that print onto that silvery paper) which no one uses any more.

       No, I'm not anyone in disguise, I promise! I have heard of this site YEARS ago and signed up without posting, but this is my first submission. I am somewhat of a goofball in my personal life and work, and my friends all thought this was a good idea, so I thought what the heck?   

       I'm very glad to hear that so many people think it's a good idea!! :)

       Ah, thank you for your ¡Ayuda! [hippo]
theleopard, Jun 12 2007
  

       Sorry, my Spanish, she is, how you say? Not so well? I was trying to translate some well-known fortune cookie-style phrases such as:
Help! I am being held prisoner in a fortune cookie factory.
Your waiter deserves a very big tip.
Please read the other side.
You snooze, you lose.
Love conquers all.
  

       Can we come up with versions of this for other ethnicities? "Pitagrams" for Greek restaurants? "Naanentities" for Central Asian cuisine? Roti-writings? Chapati-notes? Matzo-lingo?

       thats pretty awsome. Could you make stuff like tacos and quesadillas with them?
bobathie, Jun 27 2007
  

       I was envisioning tortillas you can use to make a fort. Either way, its right up my alley. [+]
