In 1998, a Somerset pub-goer named Trevor Prideaux began issuing an annual "Turnip Prize" as a parody of the UK  art world's Turner Prize. The winner in 2003? James Timms' "Take a Leaf From My Chuck," a work inspired by a "freak leaf-blowing accident in a farmyard," comprising a raw chicken stuffed with leaves.

* As of 2020, the Turnip Prizes were still being awarded each year in multiple categories.
