Peter Ayotte, noted in his press release as a "friendly upcoming Internet opportunist"--i.e. not The Devil Himself, just to be clear--would like to rent your soul for ten bucks a week.
It's a new twist on an old non-profit business model. He's gambling on the chance that the soul-leasing business will earn enough money to stay afloat from the charities who pay weekly to advertise on his site, RentYourSoul.com.
Ayotte swears he's not working for Beelzebub. He'll pay you $10 and also donate $10 to the charity of your choice, selected from the nonprofits posting to RentYourSoul.
If you've ever been tempted to trade your soul for fame, fortune, or other significant gains, you're in good company: Homer and Bart Simpson, Dr. Faustus, Charlie Daniels' violin-wielding "Johnny," and any number of Blues players have risked perdition with the Prince of Darkness. One News.com staffer claims to have sold her soul in exchange for her almost supernatural Guitar Hero skillz.
Instead of skirting the fiery pit of eternal damnation, why not simply lease your soul for a good cause? It only takes a few minutes to post a photo of yourself, and if he posts your photo on the home page, you're soul-free for a week and ten dollars richer afterward. No, you can't have hordes of dancing girls and wealth beyond your wildest dreams in exchange. But you can have the satisfaction of a deed well done for the good of others.
What's the risk? It's an asset almost all of us possess, and chances are, you're not using yours anyway.

File this under "F" for Freaky.
Peter Ayotte, an Internet entrepreneur, has devised a clever marketing scheme to help charities that want to advertise on his website. He is offering the public an opportunity to rent out their soul for a week. All you have to do is post your photo with a little "my soul" sign on it; if your photo is chosen to be put on the homepage, you get paid ten dollars and do without your soul for a week.
The plus is that he also donates ten dollars to a charity of your choosing from those advertising on his website.
While this is not the proverbial "selling your soul", Mr. Ayotte swears that he is not working for Beelzebub.
Check this out. I "rented" my soul on www.rentyoursoul.com The site owner chooses 20 "souls" randomly each week and pays $10.00 to their preferred charity and gives you $10.00 to boot. My charity was World Vision. I will donate the other $10.00 to our Christmas 50/50 Offering along with our other gift. (In case you missed tonight's Christmas Dinner we asked our church to give a generous gift at Christmas to Jesus through our Church. We will give away 50% of the money to do mission work around the word - and 50% will be used to fund a Children's Pastor in '08. - If you know of one - let us know). Pretty cool! Stuff. You can "rent your soul" and get $20 (10 for you - 10 for your charity of choice) just by submitting your photo. New photo's and charities every week.
