"why is it two cans and string, not two cans and a string"-- someone looking at this website over my shoulder.

Actually, there's a handful of more natural permutations including "A string and two cans". Simply put, "two cans and string" was the only permutation that was available as a .com without adding more words like "piece of" in front of "string".
  
String doesn't indicate a single object, but a limitless supply of a commodity.

Once upon a time I went poking around in the Civilization II resource files and found this gem:
From CIV II:
Caravan from %%STRING%% carrying %%STRING%% arrives in %%STRING%%.

So yes, string is definitely a commodity. And at least in Civilization it was limitless because IIRC you just have to drive a caravan to a place once to establish a trade route. No pesky merchant units wandering around the map to get in the way of military operations.
