It’s come to light that an old witch of the woods has had to begin eating her own gingerbread-built home after council officials declared her kitchen to be a spare bedroom.

A visit by inspectors for the new bedroom tax found two children to be sleeping in what has been described as “minimal” bedding. The old witch, who refused to be named and wouldn’t give her age, said having to pay tax on what was quite plainly a kitchen/pantry had left her penniless and unable to afford to feed herself. “I’ll have to eat my gingerbread house myself if I can’t get any more kiddies to come visit me!”

A spokesman from Inland Revenue stated, “Any room where a person or child sleeps is classed as a bedroom and therefore warrants tax.” If this is the case, the old witch may consider partaking of the newly assessed bedroom first, in order to reduce her rate.

The two children were unavailable for comment.

The bedroom tax has been under fire lately, with many claiming to have been taxed unfairly. One such complainant, Rapunzel said, “How is it right to charge me tax? I can’t even get out of here!”
