I saw a recent promo, where they had that kids folded paper toy, you know, the one that's diamond shaped, and you put your thumb and forefinger of each hand in it, and move your fingers away from you, towards you, then left and right, and then open up a flap, and read what's under it?

What the hell is that thing called again? It's been bugging me for years.

 Where I come from it was called a "fortune teller", because the idea was that you had your buddy pick a color, and then after several iterations of the device, you had them select an available number, and then after several more iterations one more number, then you lifted the flap to gleefully tell them their fortune, which inevitably involved them contracting cooties.

Thanks Chris. Looks like "Cootie Catcher" is another common name.

 Ah! I note that "cooties" seems to be a common theme. :)
