BONUS: You’re No Dumbledore



This time, the foolishness lies with the employer. But it was just too good a story to leave off our list.

The location was Land O’ Lakes, Florida 2008, not Salem, Massachusetts 1692, but a substitute teacher was fired for witchcraft. Jim Piculas, the teacher in question, performed a 30-second magic trick in front of a middle school class where he made a toothpick disappear. Later that day he got a call from the substitute teacher coordinator who told him he could not take any more assignments. “Why?” he asked. For being suspected of “wizardry.”

Moral of the Story

Leave your wand at home. Apparently, witchcraft is still a scourge on local youth.
