Did you know that Banksy entered last year but his piece was disqualified on the grounds of being 'too good'!

Plant Mad Nige said...

Exquisite! The swinging six teas is my fave. Is all Turner Prize stuff bad art? I seem to recall some quite good stuff from time to time - or is that my failing memory?

VP - I've someone declare Banksy a traitor because he's become 'acceptable art.' Not sure what that's supposed to mean. Traitor to whom?

Plant Mad Nige said...

Whoops - should have read 'I've heard someone . . .'

Good news for the sock....heucheraholics now have a blog up and running and would love you to join in!!!(Only nice people with no glyposate welcome!!)
(Sorry Nige!)

Bad news for Heucheraholics, the Bedsock is on Plant Mad Nige's side and can't abide them! Take him off your Christmas card list at once.

Ps. The swinging six teas and Knickerless Cage are my favourites.

I really hope the tea bag one wins!! Great stuff and pretty much could be a Turner entry. Art is wonderful. Oh what could it all mean?????
The Knickerless Cage, has too much thought and work put into it, tut tut.

Ms B said...

Well, me being a very basic sort of person with no subtlety about me you can guess which one I liked bestest!

WV is 'actismir' which reminds me of antimacassar! Do they still exist?

Arabella Sock said...

Oh dear Ms B. it wasn't the slightly soiled pants was it? I know it was.


Antimacassar - Is that an exotic form of matter in which the electric charge of each particle is the opposite of that in normal macassar?

My favourite has made me want a jam tart. Great find for the advent calendar, Arabella.

Quick Advent-y question - did anyone ever make one of those flammable advent candle things that they used to have on Blue Peter?

Juliet said...

Oh, those are wonderful - so much better than the real Turner prize. Most of them are far too clever to win a prize for taking the least amount of thought and effort to complete though.

My parents have antimacassars (well, they are 81. The parents, not the antimacassars.).

The Michael Winner is declared ....

"Man Hole Cover"

Who said judges had no sense of humour?

BFN

PS: The winning entry was nearly as enormously large as Mrs B's infamous BIG PANTS!

VP said...

Curses! I see BFN has beaten me to the scoop :(

Croc of Gold turned out to be an entry from the local TV film crew joining in on the fun!
