Artists sharing their cocaine in the turbine hall Tate Modern

LONDON- A worthless piece of art? Or just more problems with London drugs culture?

None of the above. A huge line of crack cocaine, enough to fuel the London glitterati for several decades - 548 ft long and three feet deep in places - in the concrete floor of Tate Modern has been unveiled as a new £300 million work of art.

Made by Brazilian artist Boris Baldarsehole and entitled Pile of Shit Dope, the line is the latest monumental smack to fill Tate Modern's giant Turbine Hall in the rolling Mothercare series of commissions.

What may not be glaringly obvious to visitors is that Pile of Shit Dope is laden with meaning as deep as the smack itself, according to Baldarsehole.

He explained that it was a statement about celebrity and the gap between celebs and the rest of us.

If you have a line of smack you'd like to reveal to the public, send us your photograph, and we promise not to get the met involved.

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