Florida teacher accused by idiot of “wizardry.”
You know, you just can’t make this stuff up. Most of us just aren’t this stupid.
Teacher Jim Piculas does a magic trick where a toothpick disappears and then reappears.
Piculas recently did the 30-second trick in front of a classroom at Rushe Middle School in Land ‘O Lakes.
Piculas said he then got a call from the supervisor of teachers, saying he’d been accused of wizardry.
Yes, that’s right: wizardry. And the imbecile who made the accusation is apparently quite serious! Piculas’ boss, the supervisor of substitute teachers, called him to tell him he couldn’t take on any more assignments and that this was “a huge issue.”
No, the huge issue is that someone who saw him perform a sleight-of-hand trick that’s been done by kid’s party magicians for something like a couple of centuries would seriously not understand that they were seeing a trick. That no “wizardry” was going on, here, at all. That this was anything other than a minor entertainment. Honestly, either the person who accepted the call on behalf of the supervisor put way, way too much weight on this or the person who made the call is just an ignorant idiot stuck in the dark ages, literally. The school district should inform the person making the complaint that they need to grow the hell up – immediately – and get with the 21st century, advise the supervisor in question that he need not panic should this occur again, and offer apologies to Piculas along with assurances that his toothpick trick won’t land him in any trouble.
Criminey, folks, we’ve got serious issues to deal with. Leave off on the idiocy about magic tricks…
