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.
