Thank you for making this port. I was quite saddened when these fortunes were removed.

I will test it this weekend.

Going by the other fortune file ports, misc/fortune-offensive or something very similar would be more appropriate.
It's not really a game in itself and the others are in misc, so misc is probably more appropriate.

The fortunes were removed in one of the ALPHA releases if not before then (certainly before 10 was branched to -STABLE), so I'm sure it's
fine to simply target 10.
Anyone still running a version of 10 from when it was still -CURRENT can expect problems anyway.

Perhaps it would be better to specify the version - e.g., "The offensive fortune cookies present the 9.x base system that were removed in 10.x."
