a surfing can of creamed corn

Also, interesting note on the classic surfer term "bodacious". Whilst the term (a portmanteau of "bold" and "audacious") is most often associated with the 70s and 80s eras of surfing, it actually dates back to 1832. Hell, it may have been used in some Civil War soldier's letter home (Ken Burns style). And yet, with such a long, rich history, it is now seen as a word used by degenerates. And that, kids, is how society simultaneously creates and ruins language.
