"I had an idea once, a long time ago, to do a huge sculpture that was going to be a human poo - seven foot tall and forty foot long. I was going to make it the most perfect human poo you could make, in bronze - and then put it outside somewhere. And I was going to call it Untitled (No. 2). I made a model - I just never made it. I think it's a great piece of art. It forces people to look at things that maybe they are not that keen on looking at, but it's healthy and it means you're well - and it's a beautiful object."
Damien Hirst, doing little to disabuse his critics of their view that his art's shit.
