    I really don't think that back in 1837 (when the company was formed) anyone sold their soul to the devil. I also really don't think the current president sold his soul either, as it took him over 20 years as a P&G employee to attain that position.

    RE: the moon and stars logo: Many claimed that the logo was a mockery of a Bible passage (Revelations) which describes “a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars." P&G’s former logo consists of thirteen stars surrounding a man’s face, which is etched on the moon.

    It's still in use in Hong Kong and China.

    Source(s): I did a paper on P&G many moons ago.

    Was this sole a pet or did he catch it to eat, then change his mind? Was the devil going to eat the sole? If so, how was he going to prepare it? If not, a sole seems like an odd fish to keep as a pet.

    This urban legend refers back to the trademark symbol of a circle with a half moon man looking at a starry sky. You used to see it a lot on the packaging as recent as 5 years ago. From this artwork there are all kinds of rumors about P&G having ties to Satan. But they are just that. Rumors!

    Well no it's not true.

    You can't sell your shoes (sole) to the devil

    he he

    just kidding.

    There is some speculation about this. Some people have thought the symbol on the old p&g items had some correllation to demonism.

    You mean the sole of his shoe or the sole he caught on his last fishing trip?
