The celebrity spoon-bender has applied for a British government job asking for 'assorted weirdos'.
The Israeli illusionist has already been making headlines for his political stunts in recent months.
Back in March 2019, he attempted to put a stop to Brexit by encouraging others to transmit 'psychic energy', then in December he claimed to have used his powers to sway the UK general election.
Now he is applying for an actual government job after Boris Johnson's senior adviser Dominic Cummings put out an advertisement for "assorted weirdos and misfits".
According to him, there is not enough 'genuine cognitive diversity' in the civil service.
"While many have doubted my abilities, my achievements cannot be dismissed as trickery or illusions," Geller wrote in a cover letter intended as an application for the role.
"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."
"Perhaps you could have used my abilities in your dealings with Michel Barnier."
He also admitted to Reuters
that he felt his powers would give him an unfair advantage over other candidates.
Suffice to say however, it is unlikely he will be getting employed by Cummings anytime soon.
