Fortune Cookie Philosophy 101

I've been contemplating life's little conundrums as viewed through the lens of the ubiquitous fortune cookie; Two I've recieved (and kept for posterity) are:

"Life consists not in holding good cards, but in playing those you hold well"

and

"Society prepares the crime, the criminal commits it"

Now dear readers, à la Mike Myers Coffeetalk character Linda Richman, I say:

DISCUSS

The problem is that life is a poker game, but I'm holding tarot cards...

I've got a four of clubs, two of hearts, jack of spades, ten of diamonds, and a card that reads as follows:

Thanks for purchasing this special deck of cards, all cards have been coated with a slick plastic coating to prevent staining if you like to eat while playing cards. Please discard this card before playing.

A Zen meditation perhaps. One can no more hold cards well and play them than have one's cake and eat it.

I went for a walk in the forest. A tree fell, but I didn't hear a sound. Now what?

One night my friends and I played poker with tarot cards. Three people died.

In my hand I've got a heart of gold, a smile of diamonds, a badly-clubbed dream, a spayed queen (i.e. female cat), and a jack of ass.

Do I raise, call, or fold?

Zen joke by approx 4 year old MiniSnab -"How did the cow kiss the pig when there was no pig?"

(As told to Ladybug, family & friends while cruising around Vancouver, B.C. one late summer evening many moons ago)

How about, "Thank you for supporting your local animal shelter."

That will encourage a large tip!
