                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARKERS to see 
what's new.  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all ARKERS. 
He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, ZIRCONIUM must be 
pretty gutsy!  It challenged the Duelmaster from HOYT FOUNDATION.  Does this beast 
have a death wish or what!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome ZIRCONIUM.  Aren't Z GLADIATORZ proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear 
the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  HOYT FOUNDATION was the most avoided team.  Is a 
120-118-10 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE CHOSEN?  
HOYT FOUNDATION, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out HUMBLE LEE challenged 
JHERI BLOOMERS.  After all, haven't SERIOUS LEE and HOYT FOUNDATION had a long 
standing duel in ARKERS?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but JHERI 
BLOOMERS wants me to write about it since it was defeated by HUMBLE LEE.  Satisfied?  
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARKERS ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because WAY JOURNER had 6-5-0 was no 
reason for FOREST GARDEN to send him to the Dark Arena!  Stop it!  Hey you guys, 
don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone 
write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ARKERS is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

ATTENTION:  Have you or a loved one has been diagnosed with the heartbreak of 
Muffintheliomariasis?  You may be entitled to financial compensation!  
Muffintheliomariasis is a common nervous system disorder linked to the destruction of 
self-worth and confidence due to the regular down-challenging of The Muffin Man.  
Symptoms and side effects include involuntary twitching, irritable bowels, sweating, 
abdominal pain, headache, gender impermanence, acute hygienic arrest, nausea and 
death.  These side effects typically occur after his down-challenging warrior has 
whomped up on you, your warrior or a loved one.  Are you at the end of your rope?
