                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZENSU needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for MARIELLA 
TREE?  BEYOND THE PALE's proud of her after beating NIGHTMARE GARCIA and getting 16 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  GENERAL 1's match with VENOMOUS CONCUBINE cost 
him a loss of 46 points!  Like ADVENTURE TIME 2's EARL OF LEMONGRAB is sweating since 
it got challenged by Duelmaster SOLDIER 1!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
SOLDIER 1 stopped EARL OF LEMONGRAB dead in its tracks!  I hear the top team insists 
all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR 
photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Like, is 
RALPH NEPPEL popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ZENSU!  He's got 
a 14-4-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
