Reality TV Meets Witchcraft

No, this is not an article about a new reality television series centered around magical practitioners. That's actually a serious downer - a reality TV series about magick is something that I would enjoy watching, especially if it got into some of the technical details of spellcasting and kept accurate records of the successes and failures of the methods employed by each participant. The actual topic of this article is a lot less interesting, but still amusing.

Apparently a recent contestant on the British reality TV series "Britain's Got Talent" was not only a practicing witch, but a sore loser. After failing to impress the judges with her act she cast a curse upon them all.

Piers [Morgan, one of the judges] told Radio Five Live: "A witch came on and after she got voted off she came in and cast a spell on Cowell, Amanda and me.

"We were left a little bit twitchy about what she'd actually done to us - it was fairly horrific. It involved a form of witchcraft.

"She went off stage and had a quick chat with Ant and Dec and then floundered back and said, 'You're all doomed'.

"Then we had a really bad session, the worst ever, in fact."

Horrific, you say? I'd love to hear more about the kinds of horrific things one could actually do on a closed television set. I mean, did she bring frog entrails or something in with her?

It remains to be seen if the curse can sustain itself longer than a single session of the show. I suppose only the ratings can tell for sure.
