One-Liner Wednesday – A backhanded compliment?


I wonder sometimes if Chinese food likes me as much as I like it …
The craziest thing? I got this same message almost exactly five years ago to the day. Figure out those odds, Mr. Holton! 😉  Click.

If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

  33. In a Vietnamese restaurant I received the same message in a fortune cookie at three different meals that read “A fool at forty is a fool indeed”. I was in my forties when that happened. The other people with me got different (and less ominous) messages which puzzled me all the more. However, looking back I now realize I should have paid more attention to that message than I did.
