From Amsterdam (aren’t drugs legal there?), comes the story of a man who built a Viking ship from 15 million ice cream sticks. According to the article, this is the largest sailing ship ever built from ice cream sticks – which clearly implies there have been others. The small birch sticks are apparently held in place by glue, which suggests that there is a shortage of duct tape in the Netherlands. And speaking of guys doing odd things, 25 of them will now get on this mighty ship and actually sail it.

And while you women readers shake your heads in dismay, may I suggest that there is probably a woman behind this whole project. This guy’s wife got him out of the house for two years doing something that didn’t cost squat, while she had reason and encouragement to scarf all the ice cream she could possibly eat. Hmmm…
