Well, I have always thought that you would have to be an idiot to be a Wiccan. Here is some proof.

“Lebanon police investigated an overnight incident in which a woman stabbed herself in the foot with a sword during a Wiccan ritual at a local cemetery.

“Police were called to the Witham Hospital emergency room around 2:00 a.m. on July 19, 2008 on a reported stabbing. The victim, Katherine Gunther, 36, 532 S. East Street, had been transported to the hospital by friends after running a 36-inch sword completely through her left foot.

“Gunther told police that she and several friends were in Oak Hill cemetery in Lebanon around 12:15 a.m. practicing a Wiccan ritual involving candles, incense and driving swords into the earth during the full moon. During this ritual, Gunther accidentally ran the sword through her foot; she also admitted to having consumed alcohol earlier in the evening.

Duh! Everyone knows that you don’t drunkenly drive swords into the ground when there is a full moon. The moon can throw off your balance.

Now I do hope that you picked up that the “victim” — Ugh! Victim? really? Can’t we call anyone by there proper name anymore? I think that in this case either fool, imbecile, or nitwit would be more appropriate than victim. Anyway, — the “victim” is 36 years old. You might laugh off teenagers displaying such brainless behavior, but a grown woman? Sheesh. I wonder if while she was at the hospital, they were able to get her head out of her …
