Number 2244: Sisters of the witch
The three sisters who are “The Sisters of the Witch” are a mean bunch. They are beauties, and flirt with a hunk, Rob. Their older sister, Martha, is plain and in love with Rob, who ignores her. She whips up some spells and takes care of at least two-thirds of her rivals. In this case I am rooting for Martha because her sisters are mean girls, insulting Martha about her lack of beauty. I think they deserve what they get.
