Fortune Cookie Copywriter

Saw this fortune cookie on Jason Oke's new blog and wondered how many and what kind of people it took to come up with this stuff. Well, his name is Donald Lau and he is a vice president at Wonton Food, the largest fortune cookie maker in the US, and New Yorker had a feature about him a couple of years ago. "The company will soon advertise for a new fortune writer, and Lau will make the transition to editor." They should license Hugh McLeod's drawings.

And yes, someone has already thought about product placement in fortune cookies (it's Mark Hughes, the author of Buzzmarketing).
