Ever notice how a well placed or misplaced word can make or break a sentence? Obviously humans use words frequently as a means of expression. Some very funny things can happen when they intentionally or unintentionally swap words, add a word, forget a word, or pull a Freudian slip. Of course, comedians intentionally play with words to create humor. One interesting collection of words this princess enjoys and finds amusing are fortune cookies. The following prepositional phrases will be added to some real fortune cookies for amusement
(disclaimer: no fortunes will be harmed in the making of this post...or will they?):

  • under water

  • at the zoo

  • in your face

  • up a tree

So let's mix it up and have some playful fun. The following combo fortunes are created by attaching the phrases as fortunes are pulled out of the fortune cookie jar:

You will show what you are capable of under water.

Depart not from the path which fate has you assigned at the zoo.

You will have gold pieces by the bushel in your face.

Share your enthusiasm - it will prove infectious up a tree.

One who does nothing but wait for his ship to come has already missed the boat under water.

Birds are entangled by their feet and men by their tongues at the zoo.

The physician heals, nature makes well in your face.

You will pass a difficult test that will make you happier up a tree.

You will be proud in manner, but tolerant and generous under water.

Answer just what your heart prompts you at the zoo.

You are deeply attached to your family and home in your face.

It is better to have a hen tomorrow than an egg today up a tree.

So thus is the mix of merry and mayhem in this life, the Universe, and everything.
