When you eat a fortune cookie, you will find a scrap of paper inside with a random rumor. Blessed fortune cookies always contain true rumors, cursed fortune cookies always contain false rumors, and uncursed fortune cookies may contain either. Eating a fortune cookie breaks illiteracy unless you are blind, and they are vegetarian but not vegan. You can also read it if you want to keep your conduct. Regardless of their BUC status, they also appear to never be rotten when eaten.
Because of their low weight and nutritional value, fortune cookies are useful for taming carnivorous pets.
When reading a fortune cookie blind, you will receive the message "What a pity you cannot read it!" instead of a rumor.
