NEW YORK (AP) — There is great embarrassment in your future.

A box of X-rated fortune cookies was mistakenly delivered to a fundraiser hosted by a Brooklyn politician.

The 350 cookies stuffed with “the most graphically lurid” fortunes got mixed up with a batch of 1,750 cookies ordered for the Chinese New Year event, Borough President Marty Markowitz said yesterday. Some guests “were stunned, to say the least.”

The annual event to raise money to send poor children to summer camp was attended by about 700 guests Tuesday evening, but only about 80 were still there when the dirty cookies were opened, Mr. Markowitz said.

The borough president was on the second floor of the two-level restaurant when a guest “yelled to me from the first floor: ‘Marty, did you order these cookies? Did you see what’s inside them?’ ” he said.

Mr. Markowitz said his office had given the restaurant 10 slogans about Brooklyn to insert into the fortune cookies, and 1,400 were delivered correctly.
