The Turnip Prize

I found something to cheer me up during all the doom and gloom.

I may be a little late to this one but have only just read about it.   According to the BBC  here ...

The Turnip Prize award, organised by a Somerset pub, is given to the person who has "created something they perceive to be crap art using the least amount of effort possible".  Winners of the competition receive a turnip attached to a wooden base.

Some of the current entries.....

Apparently last year's winner was rather rude, but very funny.  Read the BBC article if you want to know more.

    1. It's good to see so many people still retain their sense of humour. Perhaps the BBC only reported the less rude ones!

  2. Haw! Haw! I love this. With a nod to The Booker Prize we might introduce another prize - The Hooker Prize - open only to rugby front row forwards and prostitutes. But they wouldn't have to write anything. They'd just submit photographs of themselves - preferably not while at work!

    1. What form would the award take, YP?

    2. It would be a silver trophy with handles and a lid. Engraved upon it would be these words "The Hooker Prize". Crazy, huh?
