                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for COLD WEATHER, who 
flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing AMBITIOUS GUARD like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
SNUFFY was bested by VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and drops 17 points.  Well here's a 
duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  BERT & ERNIE made a Dark 
Arena Challenge against SHEWISH GIANT this week.  The crowds were amazed this turn, 
as SHEWISH GIANT killed the Duelmaster, BERT & ERNIE, leaving OPEN SESAME in 
mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, SNUFFY from OPEN SESAME to 
ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that MESOPOTAMIA was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of MESOPOTAMIA's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause OPEN SESAME beats feet every time MESOPOTAMIA smiles at them.  Try 
farming, eh?   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Yesterday I talked to the BOOK OF THOMAS' 
manager and TRAGICOMIX, slayer of DAPPER DAN.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think 
I can'.  TRAGICOMIX:  'I already did'.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will 
say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
