Okay – if this isn’t the “poster child” for the Gooblek part of my life’s dream, I don’t know what is. I can’t walk on water, but I believe a man has walked on the moon, and I can walk on Gooblek.

Popsicle Stick Ship

Click for picture of stick construction.Constructed of 15,000,000 popsicle sticks, The Sea Hart Viking was expected to set sail today in hopes of a Guinness world-record-making Atlantic crossing.

We here at Asparagus Pee say “bon voyage” and wish them well.

(If you click the picture, there’s a representative shot of a laminated plank being glued up out of popsicle sticks, and there’s a pretty full gallery behind the Sea Hart link above.)
