What’s the going rate for souls nowadays? By the kilo?

Where is the best market?

I’d do a lease type deal.

Deal! Where do I sign?

I’ll even throw in a free bag of fairy dust

Well I don’t believe there’s a soul. But I’m answering it anyway :P I’ll replace soul with arm. No, I wouldn’t sell my arm to gain the world, because I don’t want the world, it’s a disgusting awful dirty nasty place, and if I somehow gained the world I would be extremely tempted to destroy it.

since the ‘soul’ is intangible, and there is a possibility that there is no afterlife,
yeah sure. with the world, you have something to show for it. i’d like to ask someone to show me their soul.

I would sell my “soul” to gain an Audi R8.

You people are being too hasty. Before agreeing so quickly, remember the lessons learned in Simpsons, Season 7, Episode 4, “Bart Sells His Soul.”

Its to bad you can’t sell something that truly does not belong to you. Otherwise I am sure many folks would sell there souls. Also, how can your soul be replaced in context for an arm. Really, why would anybody want to posses another persons arm. Now a soul…you would hold their world in your hands and control the very fibers of there being. Hmmmmmmm ; )

I used to date a girl named World, sis’ was arrayed in glamour and gold.
But now I got a new best friend [Jesus] , cuz the world will keep you dry and watch you die in the end.

Everyone’s idea of what the world is is different. As the planet? So are you asking would you sell your soul to be a god? Gain is not always a good word.
Gaining the word globally? Too many things to take care of, have enough to do taking care of my own home. I love my home, but sometime I gain too much dog poo in the back yard.

Thanks gail, I knew I heard it somewhere. The preacher needs a new mike.

Jeruba's avatar

Not at all. The world is amazing and mostly beautiful, except where our kind has made a mess of it, but I would not want to be responsible for it. A little tiny piece of it will do for me.

Clair's avatar

eww, why would you want that?

Dr_C's avatar

@PapaLeo don’t forget the Simpsons episode where Homer sold his soul to the devil… since he had already given it to marge he promptly got it back. Cold be a plan!.

@Dr_C LOL: “Don’t touch, Homer’s soul doughnut”
