Poe's "Never Bet the Devil Your Head"

Also in honor of Poe's birthday, we thought we'd present one of his lesser-known humor pieces: Never Bet the Devil Your Head.

It's one of Poe's better satirical pieces -- a retort inspired by some of the critics of his day calling into question his moral values.

Seemed oddly (excuse the slight pun) apropos.
