Your fortune is X-rated!

First there were pork dumplings, then there was politics. Then there was porn.
A fund-raiser hosted by a Brooklyn political leader this week caused red faces when guests at the event in a Chinese restaurant cracked open fortune cookies with X-rated messages.
"The insertions in some of the cookies were really triple-X, graphic sex, can't be repeated," Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz said about the mix-up at Brooklyn's Ming Gee restaurant.
"They were probably meant for a very raunchy bachelor party."
Some 350 sexually explicit suggestions such as "One good (expletive) deserves another" were among nearly 1,500 more mundane messages delivered to the Chinese New Year's affair that raised money to send underprivileged kids to summer camp.
One attendee, Dr. Daniel Ricciardi, chief of rheumatology at Long Island College Hospital, said his fortune implied a woman was aroused by him and wanted sex, and like many others he saw, was far too obscene for print.
Markowitz said the party was a success despite the cookie controversy and that 68 children would be sent to summer camp.
"I assured those that got the naughty fortune cookies, that this is not that kind of a party," Markowitz said, adding the cookies "added spice to our event even though it wasn't a Szechuan restaurant."
