|Soul for sale |
(Seattle, February 10)
A 20-year-old student from Washington state sold his soul on the Ebay Internet auction site for 400 dollars, but
acknowledged it will be difficult to deliver the merchandise, a local newspaper has said.
Adam Burtle of Woodinville, Washington, a university of Washington student, listed for sale a "20 yr-old Seattle boy's soul,
hardly used," with bidding starting at five cents.
According to the Seattle Times, the auction was about to close at 56 dollars when a bidding war erupted.
Ades Moines, an Iowa woman entered the winning bid of 400 dollars, but Burtle said, "I don't think she's going to be able to
collect on my soul, to be honest."
Officials at Ebay, the San Jose, California, company that operates the auction site, were not amused. They removed the
listing and suspended Burtle from further auctions.
"You have to have a piece of merchandise that a seller can deliver to a buyer," said Ebay spokesman Kevin Pursglove,
who noted the company was able to suspend previous auctions for human souls but that Burtle's somehow slipped through
Pursglove told the newspaper the company was unable to prevent the two parties from carrying on any transaction on their
Burtle, for his part, said he was pleased with the outcome.
"I was happy to be past 7.50 dollars," said Burtle
