Bad omen


I'm off today. I decide to spend a day in Boston area. Then I found this poster in a service area on the way. It's the ad for Happy Meal in McDonald's.

Wow! You can not pick up food with two pairs of chopsticks! That's super bad omen in Japan. If my grandma sees this, you'll be yelled at for hours. The only time you do that is when you move the bones to the urn after cremation, hence it is a bad omen to do the same thing on food. The poster says "Share good fortune." Well, I don't know how much good fortune left after the kids did this inauspicious thing. Is Japanese the only people who thinks this way?
