Here's one for Jacoblog. Damien Hirst's stuffed shark - The physical impossibility of death in the mind of someone living (1991) - is rotting, despite its tank of preservative. Steve Cohen is the rich twit who bought this decaying corpse for approximately £6.5m back in 2004. Haw, haw, haw. Sorry, Steve; if this were a work of art I would be genuinely upset. Moneybags Hirst has agreed to replace the shark with a freshly stuffed one, but what happens after his death? Will he set up a trust fund to replace stuffed sharks every few decades or will he leave his Anti Art to rot for good? Hey, Damien, what about this for a final statement: have yourself stuffed and suspended in the nude in a glass tank and donate yourself to Tate Modern? Needs a catchy title...any suggestions, folks? Nothing rude, please.

Footnote: Charles Saatchi commissioned this load of putrefaction for £50,000, then sold it for £6.5m! See what I mean about insider trading? Saatchi controls the Brit. Anti Art market in a way that would be illegal on the stock exchange, but is legal when it comes to "art".
