In yet another exam­ple of the per­verse sense of humor of the uni­verse, an Indiana Wiccan stabbed her­self in the foot with a sword while con­duct­ing a good-​​luck ritual.

MSNBC shares with us the story of Katherine Gunther, of Lebanon, IN. While per­form­ing the cer­e­mony under the light of a full moon1 in a ceme­tery — which includes, appar­ently, repeat­edly thrust­ing the point of a sword into the ground — she man­aged to spike her­self as well.

Now I sup­pose you could argue that the good luck cer­e­mony actu­ally worked, or else she’d have sev­ered her femoral artery … but maybe in the future she and her fel­low Wiccans will con­sider avail­ing them­selves of toy swords.


1. Of course.
