Britain: Running A Hospital With Income From Porn

How sad is that:  A British hospital rents out a vacant patient ward--to generate income--to a film company making a porn movie.

I can't think of a way comment seriously on this.

But in the interest of sarcastic humor how about these suggestions:

--Hospitals sell arms and legs--removed in surgery--to the film producers of Texas Chainsaw Massacre #23.

--Doctors rent examining rooms to prostitutes.  The examining tables already have stirrups.

--Pharmacies rent space to drug cartels.  Use the "pharmacy advice" window to talk directly to your drug dealer (why? to complain of poor quality, of course)

--Hire drivers to run down ambulance chasing lawyers with their cars, generating more, expensive trauma care and returning some of the frivolous lawsuit money back into the health care system.

--Pediatricians sell videotapes of their examination of children to pedophiles.

I mean, once you think about it, there's a lot of commercial opportunity here.  How many of the uninsured could we cover with this revenue?
