Dream--err, Nightmare Job At Wookey Hole Caves

WANTED: wicked witch to cast spell over historic caves in southwest England. Must be able to cackle and not be allergic to cats. Salary 50,000 pounds ($99,500) per year.

That was the job description for a magic role at Wookey Hole Caves near Wells, southwest UK, where the owners were looking for a new witch to delight and terrify visitors after the last one retired.

Real estate agent Carole Bohanan has been announced as the winner of the sought-after position, which has been compared to Tourism Queensland's "Dream Job" competition, partly due to the hefty pay cheque on offer.

Hundreds of hag hopefuls lined up for interviews at the caves today, which are thought to have first been inhabited by man 50,000 years ago but are now home to flocks of bats.
