The Soul Storage Company?

"Is your life weighing you down? Lighten up! If your soul is keeping you from finding the happiness you deserve, there is an easy, painless and safe solution. Remove it, store it, and walk away a happier person. The Soul Storage Company's patented De-Souling™ technique actually allows its clients to have their souls removed, whether permanently or just for a little "mental vacation." After a simple and painless outpatient procedure, you will walk out of our doors unburdened, leaving your soul behind in our secure, state-of-the-art storage facilities. Later, if you decide you're ready to get your soul back, the procedure is easily reversible… but don't be surprised if you learn to love living soul-free! We are very proud to announce that our soul-extracting technology is the basis for a new major motion picture called Cold Souls, starring one of our actual clients, Paul Giamatti!"

The quote above comes from the website below. I couldn't make this up if I wanted to. It's obviously a satirical website, but its worth checking out, even if only as a reminder of how we live in a time when what was once unlikely and improbable can be entertained as a tangible reality.
