What price your soul?

I'm sure I wasn't the only person immature enough to be mildly amused by the April fools trick played by GameStation , reported by Church Mouse .
Apparently, 7,500 customers blithely signed their immortal souls away in return for a five pound gift voucher. I decided to do some research and discovered that ebay banned people from selling their souls after a singer, appropriately named "Dante", offered his immortal soul to the highest bidder in 2008.
The article also brought to mind that wonderful line from A Man for All Seasons, in which it becomes evident that Richard Rich has committed perjury in return for the Governorship of Wales and Sir Thomas Moore says, "It profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world - but for Wales!"

So, Wales or a five pound gift voucher? If the answer is "neither" , check the small print!
