** Bob sells his soul to Satan for a wish that he will make at a later date. Happy at getting Bob's soul, Satan goes to Vegas, gets a hangover but is pleased nonetheless. At a later date, Bob makes a wish and Satan realizes that the wish is way bigger than he can handle. Due to the Vegas trip, Satan neither has Bob's soul to refund nor the resources to grant the wish since he lost it all while gambling. Because of legal stuff, Satan has to fix this mess otherwise he'll either be Bob's eternal slave, be fired by the bureaucracy, or both. To fix it, Satan concocts a ZanyScheme which involves lots of cardboard and ironically a [[DealWithTheDevil Deal with]] [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Cthulhu]].

** The entire thing is a SecretTestOfCharacter. That Bob wishes for unworthy things for the high prices the Devil asks for reveals his own short-sightedness. Once Bob realizes this and starts wishing for worthier things, the bargains turn out to be WorthIt.
