Beware if you decide to tax a witch!
Apparently Romanian officials decided that fortune tellers, palm readers, astrologers and witches should pay income tax like everyone else. That's when the excrement hit the proverbial fan ... or in this case, the cat excrement and dead dogs hit the cauldron. The witches don't think they should have to pay taxes, and they're fighting back by casting evil spells on the politicians.
You might think this would give the politicians a good laugh, but no. According to the AP article, Romania is a country where "the president and his aides wear purple on Thursdays, allegedly to ward off evil spirits."
We'll be keeping a close eye on this story to see how many Romanian politicians succumb to these spells!
