Lori N., a woman from Albuquerque, NM, is attempting to auction her soul on eBay, with a starting bid of $2,000. Any takers?
Believe it or not, there have been even stranger items peddled on the popular online auction site. A British fellow received $240,000 for a glob of glue which looked like Homer Simpson. In addition, someone once forked over $35 for a UFO detector, and a Dorito shaped like the Pope's hat once netted $1,200.
Even in a down economy like this one, Lori N. will surely find some sucker willing to shell out a couple thousand dollars for someone else's spirit. She is currently struggling financially, and has experienced a fair share of bad luck lately.
eBay doesn't allow the sale of human body parts on the site, but there are no rules regarding people's souls.
In 2007, Lori got into an automobile accident, resulting in her breaking several bones, suffering a stroke, and being a coma for three weeks. It's hard not to feel empathy for the woman, but there must be easier ways to raise funds than selling your soul on eBay.
