Do some cootie-catcher prophesizing next and see what that gets you, too!
I have no idea what that little origami-snowflake toy is properly called; when I was growing up it was a “cootie-catcher,” and after flexing it enough times, you’d pop it open, unfold a section of it, and somehow your fortune would be told.
"cootie-catcher" - the intricately folded paper equivalent to the Magic 8 Ball.
