Olimar's journal

Just looking at this sealed container makes me want to open it up! But opening it will decrease its value on the alien antiquities market. Maybe I'll just use my imaginary can opener and pretend to open it instead.

Sales pitch

This calls out to be opened, peeked inside, and tasted. This temptation-filled item is perfect for those who wish to test the strength of their resolve.
