Ding! Fortune Cookies is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.

What does it say?

  • I think that first unravelling cookie is supposed to say "you are very [...] indeed" not "you are very dead" - the 'in' is clearly there... dunno what that other scribble in the bottom left is supposed to be though... --phlip TC 14:36, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Certain cookies; certain sayings?

  • Does anyone else think that the each fortune is only accessable from a certain cookie? —Einstein runner (thorax.pngfile_icon.gifmail_icon.gif) 15:29, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Order

Are the fortunes listed in any particular order? They look pretty arbitrarily ordered. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 08:00, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Looks to me like someone jus' sat there and played the game, copying down whatever came up, in the order they got them (which is how I woulda done it). --DorianGray
Maybe we should put them in alphabetical order. Just a thought. Incidentally, they're in no recognizable order in the Flash file, either. — It's dot com 13:40, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
Alphabetical sounds good. --DorianGray
Actually, I noticed that in the game clicking on certain cookies will only yield a limited variety of fortunes; in other words, there is a separate list of fortunes for each cookie. Is that true, or is it just me? — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 15:42, 14 September 2006
I think you may be right. If I'm reading the Flash file right, the list is divided into three groups and each group is assigned to one of the cookies. — It's dot com 20:49, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
I just played the game taking notes along the way. For instance: "Buy me a sandwich" only comes from the left-most cookie, and "www.thoraxcorp.com" only comes from the one on the right. So I'd say yes, that's how it works. I might add that to the page, but how should I do it without overly cluttering it? — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 05:05, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Trivia

When did this game come out? "Will you go with me" is a key line in Donnie Darko, and I'm wondering if it's a reference. The Lyrical Wondermind 23:21, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
