Best. Fortune. Ever.

Except I had to be told it was funny.


Now, I am usually quick witted. But last night I just didn’t get it. Both Ali’s and Claire’s fortunes were funny, and funnier even with the requisite, “in bed” tacked on the end. But I read mine and said, “I don’t get it. It’s not even funny.”

Man who goes through airport turnstile sideways is going to Bangkok.

Ali asked for it, read it, then laughed out loud. And I mean loud. So did Claire when she read it. I still didn’t get it. Then Claire looked at me and said, in a look-for-the-hidden-meaning kind of way, “Bangkok…”


I don’t think I’ve ever read a subtle humour fortune. Must be a Thai thing. :)

So I put this up as contender for Best. Fortune. Ever. Got anything that will beat it? Now now. Get your mind out of the sewage treatment plant.


  1. A friend of mine has one, laminated, which he keeps in his wallet.

    It reads, “You can’t please everyone. Please yourself first.”
