The topic this past week was Mystery. The first thing that came to mind was Mystery Science Theater 3000. Do you remember that show? You should!

The show is pretty silly and awesome. Quick plot: Some mad scientists send a janitor to space to watch a bunch of crappy movies to try and find the best one to use as a weapon in world domination. The janitor guy made some robots and they watch these terrible movies together while mocking them to keep themselves from going mad. I think that explains it alright. ha
