A male witch would feel a wee bit odd, wouldn't it?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Imagine: It would be like Nanny Ogg or Granny Weatherwax with a beard. :lol:

:D :D Tony.

Has to be a Hag, the advert says so. I wonder how many men could actually play the part of a hag. :D Tiff is too young, got to be a Granny Weatherwax type, I think. Nanny Ogg is far too jolly. :D
Best wishes,
Tiff

ROFL :lol:

But really, I'm not sure I'd want to live in a cave in a town called "Wookey Hole". It sounds like an unpleasant orifice on a Star Wars character. :shock:

It's not so far from somewhere called Cheddar Gorge - the SW sense of humour possibly.

Anyway Wookey Hole was around long before Chewbacca and we all have to have holes... :lol:

Then there's Pratt's Bottom, Elmers End and of course the notorious Wetwang of Countdown fame... :lol:

But they're in the SE or up north somewhere...

Within 10 miles of me are towns called Bird-in-Hand, Blueball, and Intercourse.

Here's a description of the Witch of Wookie Hole:

Wikipedia wrote:Witch of Wookey Hole

The Witch of Wookey Hole is a stalagmite in the first chamber of the caves and the central character in an old English legend. The story has several different versions with the same basic features:

A man from Glastonbury is betrothed to a girl from Wookey. A witch living in Wookey Hole Caves curses the romance so that it fails. The man, now a monk, seeks revenge on this witch who—having been jilted herself—frequently spoils budding relationships. The monk stalks the witch into the cave and she hides in dark corner near one of the underground rivers. The monk blesses the water and splashes some of it at the dark parts of the cave. Catching the witch off guard, the monk splashes the water at the dark corner she is hiding in. The blessed water immediately petrifies the witch, and she remains in the cave to this day.

It was partly down to the legend of the witch that prompted TV's Most Haunted team to visit Wookey Hole Caves and Mill to explore the location in depth, searching for evidence of paranormal activity. The show, which aired on 10 March 2009, was the last episode transmitted in series eleven of the show's run on the satellite and cable TV channel Living.
