Entry: Update: Fortune Cookies - A88013955

Update: Fortune Cookies A3169
Original authors: Old Writing Team

Reason for update:

1. I saw a link from the Library of Congress on Twitter, and was intrigued.

2. I looked up 'fortune cookie' in the Edited Guide and found something that didn't intrigue.

3. I decided to update.

Full disclosure: I haven't eaten a fortune cookie in decades, as I need my oracular pastries to be 100% guaranteed gluten-free.

I read the Entry just now and like it very much smiley - applause

The only thing I did wonder was: what is the cookie? Not just a stale biscuit, I presume!

smiley - ok

Pretty much. It's a thin, hard, sugary biscuit.

Yes, I’ll gladly second this, subject to a few tweaks.

The first sentence should read ‘had’, as the original Entry will be overwritten with this one. smiley - ok

It is an opportunity to add more h2g2 links. smiley - ok

I’m still not entirely sure the Entry says what a fortune cookie is - the section about how they are made could perhaps be tweaked to say that it is a circle of ?sweet pastry that is folded into a semicircle (or whatever shape it is that they are) smiley - laugh

1. I changed the first sentence to 'had'.

2. I added this paragraph under 'How Are Fortune Cookies Made?'

A fortune cookie consists of a crisp, thin cookie in the form of a circle which has been folded over and pinched in the middle. When broken open, the cookie reveals a hidden message on a slip of paper. (The paper is not edible.)

3. Could a subeditor please add more links?
