A 24-year old Shanghai man is auctioning his soul on Alibaba’s online auction site Taobao, reports Sina. The item has received 25 bids so far, with the maximum bid at 31 Yuan.

Milhouse: Every religion says you have a soul, Bart. Why would they lie? What would they have to gain?
Bart: Well if your souls real where is it?
Milhouse: It’s kinda in here… and when you sneeze, that’s your soul trying to escape. Saying god bless you crams it back in. And when you die, it squirms out and flies away!
Bart: What if you die in a submarine at the bottom of the ocean.
Milhouse: Oh, it can swim, it’s even got wheels, incase you die in the desert and have to drive to the cemetary.
Milhouse: I traded your soul for Alf pogs. Remember Alf? He’s back. In pog form.
