(SUR)PRIZE.

* To win a prize of a  holiday from Flick's Bar in Spain entrants had to take an unusual picture of themselves. So, James Bourner, 24, snapped having the bar's logo tattooed on his buttock - but he missed the deadline by 10 minutes.

** First prize at a raffle for inmates at an English jail was withdrawn by the governor for being inappropriate. Bizarrely, the prize offered the prisoners the chance to win a day out.

*** A man won a prize of a £20,000 Mini Cooper car by having the word 'mini' tattooed on his penis. Andreas Muller, 39, of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, won a radio competition to find the craziest stunt to win the car.

Even without having any idea what it would be like to have a penis, I'm confident that wouldn't be anywhere near enough of a prize to convince me to let anybody anywhere near it with a tattoo or any other kind of needle.
