"Sign it in yer own blood, scabbie!"

This is hardly a good thing. This big pirate fellow wants me to make a treasure map in my own blood, and I've not the gall to actually slice my finger and write it out. Not to mention, I don't write very well with just a finger...

Have no fear! well, maybe a little, he does have a sword, after all. But, besides that, have no fear!

Just use your newly purchased blood pen to draw the map. It's designed to look just like a sliced finger, and indeed, fits over an average sized adults index finger quite nicely. Specially designed ink comes in refillable canisters, with the look and feel of real blood, we spent six months alone matching the viscosity! Watch as you dabble away in your "blood", your adversaries will be amazed at your fearless candor when asked to sign in blood and you end up turning the entire decree into a scarlet mess!

       Good idea... I don't know if you've had the chance to sell your soul recently, but all soul sales must be notarized and signed in blood in triplicate.   

       You could even pull a fast one and sign it with someone else's blood. All the benefits of soul selling without that damned eterntal damnation.

       the devil tested my soul by the usual bite and taste method, made a sour face and declared that whoever sold it to me was a con-man.

       The 'ol two souls for the price of one trick, eh, po?
daseva, Jul 01 2005

       no, that was soles for my leakin' shoes

       If you are often being asked to sign things in blood, then extract all the required blood in one blood extraction (Like giving blood) and have the blood made into a lifetime supply of fountain pen catridges........

       Minimal, you clot.

       Of course, signing something in blood would have the added advantage of being amenable to DNA testing. One croissant for you, my friend - please forgive the bloodstains.

       I believe this invention would have saved Sideshow Bob quite some trouble. +

       Or buy a pen with a short hypodermic needle poking out of the side. One hard press allows it to penetrate the skin, and lead the blood to the nib.
(You'll only run out of ink when you're dead, maybe)

       Wouldn't clot, [baconbrain], as blood only clots when in contact with air. The cartridges would be sealed.

       Nice. I am, however, slightly worried about how many people on HB have such detailed knowledge of selling one's soul to Satan...

       We're just into niche markets.

//you clot//
//Wouldn't clot//

Well, could be both. Daseva could market Saint Gennaro's blood in a pen. The bad thing is, the pen will only write twice a year, but the good thing—when it does write, it means there won’t be any catastrophes in the near future.
