The Honourable Association of British Prostitutes - HAPB - are getting their own back on the sex-for-commission trade with a new reality TV show called "Ride my Pimp".
This new show is loosely based on the American TV "Pimp my Ride" series, where gentlemen from the hood, dressed in jeans with crotches below their knees, pointing their fingers in the air, going "yeah man" and shouting "crucial" convert 1993 model year Ford Fiestas into 4x4 stretched limos with leather interiors, 30-channel stereos and swimming pools.
The new TV show sees pimps being transformed into various forms of transport, from two-wheeled scooters to long wheelbase vans.
The pimps are transformed into these various forms of transport using nothing more than welding arc lamps, aluminium and various pieces of miscellaneous electrical equipment. Some will have seats added as well as luggage racks and tow bars.
Spokeswoman for HAPB, Tracey Legover said this was the first step towards freedom for the members of her honourable profession. She said that for too long, pimps had nothing better to do than abuse women and customers, or in some cases go as far as to threaten police and drug dealers who stray onto their patch.
"This is the first time that pimps are going to be able to make a contribution to society. Especially if they are turned into a green form of transport."
