Turnip Prize

Nominees for this year's antidote to the Turner Prize for bad art have been announced by Turnip Prize HQ: New Inn in Wedmore, Somerset. They include a sweaty-looking slab of Swiss cheese cut into the shape of an E to make CheeseE and an Action Man with a strategically placed postage stamp entitled First Class Mail. May the worst pun win. Money raised from the competition goes to childhood bereavement charity Winston's Wish. The winner will be revealed on 5 December, the same day as the Turner Prize is announced (title link). Banksy doesn't stand a chance; too much effort and no awful pun.
