<B>Soul sold for less than £12</B><BR>from the BBC website<P><BR>A graduate has sold his soul on an internet auction site for less than £12. <BR>Artist Gareth Malham came up with the idea after watching an episode of the Simpsons in which Bart makes a similar transaction. <P>The 26-year-old, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, posted an advert on the eBay site and his soul was bought by a man from Oklahoma in the US, for £11.61 ($16.95). <P>Mr Malham said the buyer wanted a new soul as he had lost his own in a bet over a game of air hockey. Members of the clergy have dismissed the sale as "dangerous". <P>Mr Malham, who lives in Byker, said he would sign over his soul by writing a legal document in his own blood when he receives his cheque. <P><A HREF="http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/uk/england/newsid_2051000/2051061.stm" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><P><B>Stuart adds</B>: The question is would a dancer's soul be worth more or less? This issue doesn't arise with Executive Directors, of course, as it is well known that they don't have souls.

We still haven't answered Stuart's question:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The question is would a dancer's soul be worth more or less?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>This is of concern because it is often said that the dancer put all of her/his heart and soul into a performance.....does that mean there is now less soul?<P>Or is it a renewable resource?<P>Or maybe it should be 'sole' (the shoe and/or the fish) instead of 'soul'...<P>As in: "she put all her sole into that pas de poisson...or was it pas de ange?"<P>

Would a choreographer have any say in how much a dancers soul is worth like the collectors on the antique roadshow?? <p>[This message has been edited by happymagill (edited June 20, 2002).]

Is an old soul worth more or less than a young one?

LOL, Failli! No doubt there are those behind the scenes trying to manipulate the market. And probably some inside traders, too.
