Spotty Swansea makes Turner Prize Shortlist

In a surprise announcement, the Turner Panel has named the Welsh measles epidemic as a short-runner for this year’s converted Turner Prize.

Taken as a series of aerial photographs, the 900 reported cases bear a startlingly resemblance to Roy Lichtenstein’s “Thinking of him”.

The Department of Health has been asked by Culture Secretary Maria Miller to delay the production of 1.2 million vaccines.

She told arts executives in a speech that they must “hammer home the value of culture to our economy”. A spokeswoman added, “If it means, a few kids in Swansea suffer from inflammation or a high fever, this is a small price to pay for great art.”

Mrs Miller approved of the Turner Panel’s decision saying: “The government wants participants – not bystanders”. The Secretary reminded reporters that under the Tories we had seen growth of “2,000 cases of measles in England – the highest figure for nearly two decades!”

The Turner winner – who will receive £25,000 – will be announced on 2 December. Previous winners include Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley and last year’s recipient, a small outbreak of Chlamydia in Bognor Regis.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
