Britain wants weirdos and “misfits” and the government has even posted a job role.
In response Uri Gellar, famed psychic, spoon bender, and former friend to Michael Jackson, believes he fits the bill.
Responding to an ad from the British government asking for “weirdos” and “misfits”, Gellar says he’s the perfect candidate and has applied.
So, what exactly is the UK looking for when asking for weirdos? Well, it may not be Uri Gellar’s type of weird they are looking for.

In a blog post, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s most senior adviser, Dominic Cummings, advertised government jobs for “assorted weirdos”. For example, he says he wants people with cognitive diversity, something that is lacking in the civil service.
Britain Wants Weirdos, Gellar’s Your Man
Amazing, Gellar wants to join the civil service it seems. The psychic must have seen this coming, of course, and has now applied for a job with an open letter. Starting with “Dear Dom”, Uri hilariously says he has conducted espionage work in the past.
“While many have doubted my abilities, my achievements cannot be dismissed as trickery or illusions,” he says.
“In my intelligence work I assisted with Operation Desert Storm, helped to locate secret tunnels in North Korea, and used my skills to erase crucial diplomatic discs on their way to Moscow,” he said.
Gellar shot to fame in the 1970s, when simply being whacky was enough. He is most famous for using telekinesis to seemingly bend spoons and contort other objects. Sure, Gellar’s “magic” gained him huge fame, including becoming friends with Michael Jackson, but most dismiss him as a hoax.
However, Gellar has always insisted he is the real deal. He even says he actively helped Boris Johnson win the UK’s election last month. For instance, Gellar says he gave Johnson’s aides a spoon covered in positive energy.
Geller recently said he had used his powers to help Johnson win last month’s general election by giving his aides a spoon enthused with positive energy. As he points out, his abilities probably give him a good chance of getting the job.
“I don’t think any of the other people who filled out the form have any psychic powers, but I’m not 100% sure,” he said.
