Tylluan, it is obvious that you did not apply for the 50K per annum job as witch at Wookey Hole. The interview required a cackler, and someone who sounds as if they could genuinely spook the visiting public. I am not sure if this is really what it is all about.
I haven’t researched the history of this hole, nor Wookey, so I am not in a position to comment on the appropriateness of the appointment. There is no doubt that the estate agent who got the job, will have no arguments about the appropriateness for her, especially with the money bag that goes with it. Perhaps, the public will pronounce in due course. I should imagine, it is a seasonal appointment. If not, someone is going to get really cold and shivery in the hole. The up side of that though, is that the designated witch will be so healthy, she’ll be able to ward of any hint of swine flu!
