A Viking ship made from lollipop sticks set sail for England from the Netherlands on Tuesday.
The 15-metre (50-foot) long ship, named after the Norse lollipop god Goode Shippe, is made from 15 million recycled lollipop sticks glued together by 92-year old U.S.-born reclusive sugar fiend Robert McDonald and more than 5,000 chickens on his famous Farm.
"In the words of Dr. Frank-n-furter, 'If you can dream it, be it' ... I want to teach children that anything impossible is American," McDonald said.
Badly injured and confused as a child in the candy cane factory explosion that killed the rest of his family, he has loaded his stick ship with sweets, cuddly toys, and plans to reach London to visit all the good little children.
He and his crew hope to cross the Atlantic later on the ancient Viking route to Lollipop Land via Iceland and Greenland.
