Woman Trying to Sell Her Soul on eBay

×
By Zachry Floro

People can sell their souls on eBay?

A New Mexico woman named Lori is doing just that, and bidding has already jumped from $100 to $405 in just a day.

Describing it as a "slightly used soul," Lori is offering buyers a "Carfax" so they can see the black and white marks her soul has accumulated over the years. Religious bidders can save Lori's soul through conversion or prayer.

Pop culture abounds with examples of people selling their souls to the devil in exchange for money, however, this doesn't seem to be what's motivating Lori.

After being disabled in a drunk driving accident years ago, Lori told NBC 2 that she feels like she's "at the end of her rope" and just wants to connect with another soul.

eBay's policy forbids users from selling human body parts or remains on its site, and the company has removed listings in the past when people tried to do so. For now, you can check out Lori's soul auction online.

how can she sell something if she doesnot have???technically she has one but neither she as seller nor the buyer knows the soul. so i will pay her by invisible money if she want to sell her invisible soul.

Give her a pistol and tell her it's a point and shoot camera.
Look into the lens and take a self portrait.

She just sold her Soul to the Devil for money. money isn't God. he blessed us to use it wisely. but there's good money and bad money. it depends how you use the money. we will not see her in heaven. she's a damaged dark soul. love God not money people!

Once the auction is over, what do they "get" for their money? (Does she "move in with the buyer"? Or does she agree to "do what ever they ask"? ) This is more than just silly, it's dangerous. I can imagine how this would work out. Esau sold his soul for a bowl of stew and it didn't work out so well for him...

Wow, what would I do with another soul? Tell you what, I'd be happy if I can keep my dog from pushing his food out of his bowl with his nose
