Okay, it’s Friday the 13th, and you know what that means. That’s right, it’s curtains for promiscuous teens visiting camp Crystal Lake. It’s also time for Mystery Car! and hopefully that will offer you enough of a distraction that you won’t end up a serial killer’s victim. There are certain rules of idiot behavior that are common in slasher movies – always go into a dark basement, never call the cops, and whenever possible girls should wear nothing more than skimpy underwear when going outside to check the breaker box.
Fortunately Mystery Car rules are much simpler and let you be more fully dressed. There’s also a significantly lower likelihood of death while playing. There is always the slim chance of a brain aneurysm from thinking too hard, but today’s contest shouldn’t be that taxing. One thing it is, you will note, is some sort of wagon. It’s also in black and white, which was coincidentally the case of one of the scariest movies ever made – Night of the Living Dead.
It may be a day when the superstitious stay home, and getting busy teens get their comeuppance, but for us, it’s just a day to figure out the make, model, engine and year of the above Mystery Car. And after that, I’m going to go down into the basement to figure out why the lights aren’t working- in just my underroos.
