A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

An Extreme Craft!

Just when I think that I've seen the apex of extreme craft, another peak comes along, scaled by a determined crafter with a whim of iron. Former Hollywood stuntman Robert McDonald has spent the last two years building a Viking ship out of 15 MILLION POPSICLE STICKS! He and two assistants have finished the ship, which was to be put on its maiden voyage yesterday with a crew of 25. Not only is the craft (sorry...pun not initially intended, but I think I'll roll with it) seaworthy, but McDonald wants to eventually sail the ship across the Atlantic! No popsicle will be safe when the Viking Ship starts plundering Quikee Marts on this side of the pond.
