A London gallery is looking for a £3,000 brick by artist Gavin Turk
which went missing and was replaced with a worthless equivalent.

I think I'm going to take a black marker to all the junk laying around my yard (I've got some bricks and slate paving stones), I'll sign everything now, so it will be ready if I'm ever famous!

I found an article on a piece of "art" Laughing along the same lines as your brick. Here's the link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/4059997.stm

If that's the most influential piece of modern art - maybe art needs a new definition. Either that, or men's rooms should now be considered galleries

Marcel Duchamp must be howling with laughter (from the great beyond)
