EMERGENCY calls are going unanswered as hipsters pressure the NHS to decommission ambulances for their art projects.
Just four ambulances remain active in East London with the remaining 596 being used as vegan burrito museums, gamelan rehearsal spaces and ironic shrines to Jim Davidson.
56-year-old Bill McKay said: Last month I fell in the street, smashing my pelvis in three places.
Luckily an ambulance was passing, but it wasnt staffed by medical professionals – just some youths with a pop up exhibition of sadomasochistic cartoons from the 50s and 60s.
“There was also an on-board DJ playing rockabilly records. Ironically he was called ‘Doctor Hellfire’ but could do nothing to ease the agony radiating through my torso.
“They were pleasant though and one of them ran to get me some paracetamol, while I lay there screaming and looking at the kinky drawings.”
Ambulance owner Nikki Hollis is a sculptor specialising in bodily fluids: “Most days Ill get four or five people flagging me down.
“I stop and pretend to help but actually just siphon their blood and urine for use in my forthcoming show ‘Garden of Death’.
People believe anything you tell them when youre driving an ambulance.
