In the year of Our Lord 1999, under the tutelage of Master Oogway, a fortune cookie gained sentience. He was known as Joel Osteen and his tidbits of mostly nonsensical if universally applicable wisdom brought him acclaim and spoils. Oh, so many spoils.

As Master Oogway said to him before sending him out into the world, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called present.”

For years, Osteen’s dominance remained undisputed. Every day was a gift. But then a challenger emerged: wrestler/actor/China-apologist John Cena.

When not busy kowtowing to the chief content officer of the Motion Picture Association of America, it seems Cena increasingly likes to offer platitudes and bromides similar to those upon which Osteen built his empire. Cena’s fortune cookie bona fides also most likely have significantly more support from the country that did not invent them.

As such, the preacher, not wanting to live in regrets and miss seeing the new, decided to vanquish his potential rival before the latter had time to remember the
