How can I get a job as a fortune cookie writer?

I'm working on my portfolio. I'm going for much more specific predictions
than the medium typically offers. Here's a few samples:

You will marry for love, but your spouse will marry for money.
You’ll be too in love to notice.

This time, everyone at work is going to notice your new haircut.

You will have 134 more headaches before you die.

Since I joined Netfliz all I do is watch British comedies on my computer. Especially The IT Crowd.

Why is the word yes so brief?
It should be
the longest,
the hardest,
so that you could not decide in an instant to say it,
so that upon reflection you could stop
in the middle of saying it.

Walmarts to host Bama's BCS trophy

The University of Alabama is going to display its new national championship football trophy at a place where most anyone can see it: Walmart.

The school says the Coaches' Trophy will be on display at a Walmart Supercenter in Tuscaloosa on Saturday and another Walmart store in Gardendale on Sunday.

Fans will be able to get their picture taken with the actual Coaches' Trophy that was presented after the BCS win over Texas. The $30,000 trophy is topped with a football made of Waterford Crystal.

The school will permanently display the trophy on campus. The Walmart stops are part of a sponsorship deal.

Good God

Instead of casting them out of paradise,
Instead of making them labor in pain and sweat,
Instead of instilling tristesse after coitus,
Instead of giving them fire to burn their house down

And light their way into the outer world,

He could have split them, each with a memory of the other,
And put them each into a separate world.

(Mark Jarman)
