Coming out of my cookie and I've been doing just fine.
Here's your WTF news story of the day, aside from the one about Donald Trump ALLEGEDLY liking golden showers. We don't think anything could top that.
The Killers decided to indulge themselves with a Chinese from Panda Express this week and got a little more than they bargained for when they cracked open a fortune cookie which had lyrics to their own song inside! What are the chance of that? No, seriously, are there any statisticians out there that can work it out for us?
The lyric in question was "Smile Like You Mean It", from the song of the same name, and the band had the best response when they uploaded a photo of the cookie on their Twitter feed.
I'm thinkin' orange chicken for life and we'll let you off the hook for using our stuff. pic.twitter.com/3gJ9FebZVD— The Killers (@thekillers) January 8, 2017
That's right. They are trying to get free chicken for life in exchange for this flagrant example of plagiarism. Genius!
So, if anyone ever asks how to get free Orange Chicken at Panda Express, say that 'somebody told me' that you need to write a hit song with lyrics that can be used in fortune cookies.
