Elwood "Bunky" Barlet must of read the Harry Potter series. The Wiccan celebrity wants to open his own Hogwarts.
Wiccan high priest Elwood "Bunky" Bartlett, who won an estimated $49 million in the Maryland lottery last month, intends to use his money to set up a school for witches -- a real-life Hogwarts.
Bartlett, who formerly operated a bookkeeping service, says the winning ticket came to him after he promised "the powers that be" that he would use his winnings to quit his job and teach full-time.
He told the Associated Press that his school will teach not just about Wicca but also about multiple spiritual traditions, as well as offering training in practical skills like financial management.
It is an odd story reported without commentary. A lottery winner wants to teach about Witchcraft and financial management. One does not need formal training to become a Wiccan high priest, nor does one need a specialized degree to teach people how to pick lotto numbers. As P.T. Barnum said "There's a sucker born every minute".
