Romania Rejects Tax on Witches

Witch Associated Press, Abracadabra! Romania Witches Win Tax Fight For Now:

Abracadabra, we'll turn all of you into toads! That's what Romanian senators may have been fearing when they rejected a proposal to tax witches and fortune tellers.

Lawmakers Alin Popoviciu and Cristi Dugulescu of the ruling Democratic Liberal Party drafted a law where witches and fortune tellers would have to produce receipts, and would also be held liable for wrong predictions, a measure which was part of the government's drive to increase revenue.

Romania's Senate voted down the proposal Tuesday. Popoviciu claimed lawmakers were frightened of being cursed.

Nice silhouette of Nancy Pelosi. They should tax zombies for eating the brains of people who voted for her.
