Woman Sells Two Souls, Really…

From the I swear I aint making this up department the AP news is reporting that a women from New Zealand just auctioned off two souls suspended in holy water:

The rare spirits that went under the gavel at a recent online auction in New Zealand weren't aged brandies or hard-to-find liqueurs.
Instead, two glass vials purportedly containing the ghosts of two dead people sold for $2,830 New Zealand dollars ($1,983) at an auction that ended Monday night.

The "ghosts" were put up for bidding by Avie Woodbury from the southern city of Christchurch. She said they were captured in her house and stored in glass vials with stoppers and dipped in holy water, which she says "dulls the spirits' energy."

As a good capitalist I applaud her for making a buck. What I can’t get my head around is that someone paid almost two grand for two vials of soul infused “holy water!” Sheesh!


It sounds like there was definitely some spirits involved; high-octane spirits! What is the popular spirits of choice in New Zealand? We need to stay from whatever it is that they drink over there.

'Souls R Us' ?

P.T. Barnum was right!

I wonder what the purchaser plans do with them. Conversation piece? Set them free?

No doubt the buyer was a relative of the dearly departed who wanted to assure the proper rest of his/her ancestors. Right? Why else would you buy dead spirits in holy water?
