Your fortune for today:

Dear Would-be Fortune Teller,

If you are looking for a fun activity to enjoy with your freinds and pass the time, you would be better off polishing your shoes, because this pack of Misfortune Telling Cards is anything but enjoyable. These 26 cards are designed to foretell your miserable fortune, and if I were you, I would put them away and never look at them again.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

How to Use Your Misfotune Telling Cards
1. Shuffle cards as best you can.
2. Divide cards into three piles.
3. To read your own misfortune, pick the third card from the bottom of the middle pile.
4. To read the misfortune of a friend, pick the top card from the pile on the left-hand side.
5. To read the misfortune of someone you haven't met yet, pick any card from the right-hand pile.

Proceed with extreme caution.
If rash occurs, discontinue use.
