I like Popsicles.

I like sailboats.
I like Vikings.
I like popsicles.

That's the trifecta for sure so I guess I like this project. A Dutch man, Robert McDonald, has made a 15-metre replica of a Viking ship with five million ice cream sticks. He's apparently going to cross the Atlantic Ocean in it.

Tiny little picture lifted from: Reuters

The ship was glued together with help from over 5,000 children. It's unclear from the article I keep paraphrasing whether the kids contributed the sticks or helped with the gluing.

A boat made of popsicle sticks. What are they going to think of next?
