The Can and its Mysterious Contents

The "Super happy fun time can of double lucky excellent mysteries of the strange, unexplained and unknown," began as a giant can of fruit cocktail. It has since gathered within it's mysterious depths an ever-changing collection of topics ranging from mysterious places, lost civilizations, cryptozoological creatures, imaginative structures, horrifying ghost stories, unexplained lights and phenomena, and even the occasional urban legend.


Topics are assigned by chance. Students must reach within and select a small sheet of paper, reminiscent of the fortunes folded within fortune cookies. Only then will their topic be revealed.
