Oh my god, look at this:

Teacher Fired for Magic Trick, His School District Calls It ‘Wizardry’

WFTV Orlando, FL reports:

A Florida substitute teacher says his job disappeared after doing a magic trick in front of his students. Substitute teacher Jim Piculas made a toothpick disappear, then reappear in front of a classroom at Rushe Middle School in Land O’ Lakes, Florida. The Pasco County School District says there were several other performance issues, but none compared to his “wizardry.”

Professor Dumbledore could never work at this school!

“I get a call the middle of the day from head of supervisor of substitute teachers. He says, ‘Jim, we have a huge issue. You can’t take any more assignments. You need to come in right away.’ I said, ‘Well, Pat, can you explain this to me?’ ‘You’ve been accused of wizardry,'” Piculas explained.

The assistant superintendent with the district said Piculas had other issues, like not following lesson plans and allowing students to play on unapproved computers. Piculas said he’s concerned the incident may prevent him from getting future jobs.


Hahaha, can you believe the ridiculousness of this?!! People getting accused of witchcraft and losing their job over it, I mean really, it sounds like the dark we’re heading back to the dark ages sometimes doesn’t it!! The Salem witch trials were over a 300 hundred years ago, how far have we really come since then? If a school teacher can get fired for making a matchstick disappear, it must have been a Catholic school or some other orthodox religion.

I just think that’s so funny, parents can be ridiculous when it comes to their kids, the teachers probably caved in due to pressure from them and the poor dude got fired. Oh well, next thing you know they’ll be taking ‘fun’ off the curriculum completely.
