weird event: December 2011 Archives

275x250.jpg It's not uncommon for hotel visitors to try stealing a robe from their room -- but a hotel chain in Australia is setting their guests a bigger challenge.

Art Series Hotels are hiding a $15,000 Banksy in one of their Hotels and telling guests that if they can steal it without getting caught, they can keep it.

A spokesperson for the hotels said: "The $15,000 masterpiece is one of just a handful of signed and authenticated Banksy's available in Australia. Find it, as it does the rounds of our hotels, and it could be yours...

The artwork "No Ball Games" will hang in a corridor in one of their hotels for 30 days from today… unless someone get it sooner.

Would-be title-holders are being asked to submit photos of themselves looking at paint and state the longest time they've spent watching the coloured stuff dry.

Six finalists will then be selected and invited to take part in a grand final in front of media and show off their paint drying skills.

A spokesperson for, who are organising the contest, said: "After so many sporting disappointments we’re keen to invent a sport which England can excel at and watching paint dry could be just the thing.

"Entrants don’t need to be physically fit or participate in a vigorous training regime, what’s more important is mental strength, concentration and endurance.
