BBC NEWS – Curry kicking art show cancelled

The Bedford Korma performance art piece has been cancelled because too many people would turn up to see it.

“But its created a huge amount of publicity so it achieved what it set out to do. The fact that it is not going ahead is not important, it has already existed in the public arena.”

So if I have an idea, talk about it a lot, get some money for it (his grant isn’t changing) and then cancel it, I can keep the money?
