Turd...of life?

Controversial modern artist Damien Hirst has revealed his latest creation to the world.

"Turd of life" is his latest existentialist offering and is expected to receive a rapturous response from the art world.

In an exclusive interview with TheSpoof.com, Damien gave us a brief background on just what inspired him to come up with "Turd of life":

"Basically, I was just walking along one of London's railway embankment's when I came across a tramp who was defacating on the pavement.

Like a bolt of lightening, I was filled with my usual inspiration, and the old creative juices began to flow!

I quickly scooped up the still steaming turd and rushed it back to my art gallery.

It's basically the same as when I found it, however I have added a few chunks of sweetcorn to add authenticity, and then I put it in a perspex display case.

I expect it to fetch at least £100m at auction"

Who would have thought that a common tramp pinching off his daily loaf could lead to such a wonderous piece of art?

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
