I see a tax in your future

Romania is continuing its hard-line stance against witches, so that probably means get ready for an influx of illegal immigrants making it to the East Coast on their brooms.

Witches, soothsayers, palm readers and such are now being taxed, but a new bill being considered by the Romanian legislature proposes to fine or jail those whose predictions don’t come true. Romanian witches, who apparently have a union or something, are none too thrilled with that idea.

“They can’t condemn witches, they should condemn the cards,” Queen Witch Bratara Buzea told The Associated Press by telephone.
