I just realized that the movie Dumbo is the perfect representation of how a covens list should work.
-first come the 'strongmen' (referred to in the movie as roustabouts, as in 'to engage a fight?')
-then in come the elephants...
-finally in come the clowns to make everyone question their sanity.
'we work all day we work all night we never learned to read or write, we're happy working roustabouts!'
sorry everyone, thought i would engage a chuckle or two out of you if i could.
