    Serves him right for attempting to entertain in such a ridiculous society!

    Is that Pasco County, FLORIDA??

    If so, how come only bad things seem to happen in Florida these days? Secede already! Form the Flori-texas Republic, where toothpicks don't disappear but death-row inmates do!!

    On the other hand they would have a great national (American) football team...

    One thing is for sure: the teacher was not fired for being a wizard.

    You're right. He was fired for being accused of wizardry. Much better.

    I was going to suggest he was fired for the grave offense of working for idiots, but I suppose yours works too.

    Throw him in a lake. If he sinks and drowns, he was innocent, if he floats, burn him. :)

    Probably got a job a Hogwarts shortly thereafter.

    I apologize if this bad joke has already been made.

    This is a bunch of crap. Those who were responsible for his firing should be beaten with sticks. Repeatedly. Across the kidneys.

    I like yours better.

    I wouldn't be surprised if someone got burned or drowned for being a witch at this point. Which is sad. I'm sad now. God, people are stupid.

    It was, but still funny.

    This is exactly what is wrong with America nowadays. And this is coming from a religious person...

    Wrong. He's a magician not a wizard.

    Magicians deal with transportation and movemement of physical objects.

    Wizards deal with arcane magic such as summonings and controllings.

    Eh, are my geek pants showing?

    Pat Sinclair made Jim Piculas' job disappear. I call Witch! Keep an eye on that one.

    So Wizardry… Is that like Witchcraft "lite"?
    :p
    No burnings just the ducking stool?

    Imagine what the good citizens of Pascoe County would like to do to David Blaine…

    People actually think he made the toothpick disappear? Are people really that gullible? :confused:

    maybe that's his pet name for it... like playing hide the sausage. It would make more sense him getting sacked then.

    </gross>


    No seriously, there HAS to be more to this story. I can't believe someone could be fired for a magic trick.

    Sigh. While the FL education system is completely EFFED, no one bothered to read the rest of the article:

    granted, he denies this, but still, a little more context would help.

    in all likelihood, he was fired for being a crappy sub. He was not a teacher, a sub. Subs have no rights and need not be at all considered teachers within the system. If he wanted to teach, subbing is a good way to get your foot in the door. And if this screws up his future chances, that totally sucks, but I bet he could move to a better state for teaching anyway.

    Interestingly enough, my friends and I used to have a game called "Florida or Texas" in which we'd dig up news stories as ridiculous as this one and everybody would have to guess whether it happened in florida or texas!

    You have to remember that in some primitive cultures, prestidigitation can be mistaken for "magic" or "wizardry"....

    And add wizardry to his list of offenses. Being a wizard must have pushed things past the tipping point.
