Sept 28, 2010: Chocolate Boat

Rub a dub dub, two men in a tub,
And I firmly believe they’re daft.
Not metal or wood, as a sane man should,
They used chocolate to build their craft.



There's a video of the launch on BBC, but I won't link to it because you have to watch a 29 second commercial, just to see 28 seconds of break the champagne bottle and dump the boat in the water, with no real information.

Anyway, one of the two guys owns a chain of chocolate stores, and according to Arbroath, won a bet by building it.

It's flat bottomed, tipsy as hell, and neither the engine nor sail are chocolate.

Should be sailing in milk, surrounded by marshmallow icebergs.

That took place in Concarneau, France.

55 km south of my place in Britanny.

And they say that they are planning on a 12-meter (40 feet) for 2012.

richlevy  Tuesday Sep 28 11:36 PM

Congratulations Shel. You have the most freakishly skewed intellect of anyone on the Cellar, and that's saying something.



Elspode  Wednesday Sep 29 12:14 AM

I have been told by many that I'm a damn funny guy, but I can't begin to approach Sheldon's strata. Dayum funny, bro. Laughed long and deeply at that one.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Sep 29 12:17 AM

He could write Nathan Lane's scripts.



Griff  Wednesday Sep 29 06:40 AM

ZenGum  Wednesday Sep 29 08:37 AM

You're thinking of the Dragon Fish thread.



And my "power" extends farther than you think Shawnee!


Shawnee123  Wednesday Sep 29 02:01 PM

Oh Shel, I've never had any doubts about you, carob mia!



classicman  Wednesday Sep 29 02:26 PM

I think this whole thing is a hoax. No one would waste that much chocolate. That boat is made out of pressed turds. I mean look at their coats?! They obviously have bad die-a-rear.

Does that mean they had a bad case of the sails?
