Leading fortune cookie writer quits due to writer's block

By: Troy Frisby, Buzz60

After three decades, the leading writer of fortune cookies is giving up his gig.

The reason? He can't think of anything else to write.

Money reports that, for 30 years, Donald Lau has been the Chief Fortune Writer at Wonton Foods, which claims to be the largest manufacturer of fortune cookies, among other products.

Because when you have the coolest job ever, you ignore Elsa's advice and never let it go.

Until now. Lau recently told TIME he used to write about 100 a year, but in the past year, he was down to two or three per month.

With all that time spent not writing fortunes, you'd think he might've been able to find a little inspiration. To be fair, Lau's also the company's Chief Financial Officer, a title he'll continue to hold.

Meanwhile, he's passed the fortune-writing torch to the founder's nephew. Does this mean they're not accepting resumes?
