I'm now, finally, 6'4.

Gingered Again

Idk man I’m ginger so can I not participate, or like do I scam him, or..?

-NTS-Azazel

Okay but same this was my question.

Does he know the ginger-loophole? Does he think he's got a soul and then when the amazon dude arrives, he's just like "goddammit gingered again!"?

-SpaceyMoogle

I love that we can just assume by this point that Amazon delivers to Hell...they're everywhere.

If Only

To forgive all student loans.

Quick sidebar story. A few years ago I used to work for a student loan company that is currently being sued for predatory practices. They pretty much forced us to tell the borrower to make bad decisions so the interest would go up. I worked there for like a month and it really felt like I was selling my soul to the devil. I would absolutely give my soul to the devil so that others don't have to suffer through those egregious practices and screw their entire lives up over it.-

Seemed Like A Good Idea

A bowl. It sounded funny at the time...but now I'm down one soul.

Catch-22

My soulmate.

^(not sure how that would work)

-Imsickovit

Technically it's the devil I suppose, as he literally has your soul, mate.
