This is a slightly leftfield post, but it was so entertaining that I couldn’t help but share it.
Mission: Custom developer fortune cookies for the Chinese New Year!
Why: Giving your developers a good laugh with relevant fortune cookie messages
We have a pretty awesome development team and we celebrate a diverse number of events. The Chinese New Year was approaching and the group were in the preparatory step of asking everyone to bring a dish… Note that I find all kinds of interesting ways of squirrelling out of bringing anything (the only thing I know how to bake is textures in a computer game :)). For this event I jokingly said I would bring fortune cookies.
Buying a bag of fortune cookies is such a cop-out, so here’s an alternative idea – make your own.
What you’ll need:
- A fortune cookie recipe – they’re remarkably easy to make
- Relevant fortune cookie messages, here is my template
- We spent 20 minutes racking our brains for funny messages, it’s definitely the best part!
- About 2 hours trying to not singe your fingers while folding the cookies
Happy New Year everyone!
