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.
He was fired from his substitute teaching job, thereby saving these innocent Muggle middle school kids from learning magic tricks.
Oh, the horror! Yes sir, we've got trouble! Trouble with a capital 'T' that rhymes with 'P' that stands for 'Presto-chango! I'm performing a sleight-of-hand trick that will lure your child into the occult!"
(PS--It really seems like there is probably more to this story, but it was too funny not to snark at face value.)
