Fortune cookies are fun, but never leave the realm of general advice or predictions.

Luckily, things are about to get a lot more agonizing.

To promote the launch of their new shipping service Blackbox, the people behind the popular card game Cards Against Humanity wanted to create a practical use case for their service.

And what better way than to use fortune cookies? OK Cookie ships you a box of 15 random, horrible fortunes cookies for $10 excluding shipping. The possible inserts consist of uplifting messages like the following:

Your wildest dreams will come true, assuming those dreams are about the extinction of honeybees.

You will probably die of a heart attack or something.

It’s too late to stop climate change.

The reasoning behind starting their cookie endeavour is to showcase the ease of using Blackbox to sell a product and swiftly ship it around the world.

I don’t know if I’m completely convinced yet, but I’m definitely ordering a box of these.
