                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of DAL 
SHANG brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, KILLER TUNES, since THAT 
SMELL took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  BUMPER WISDOM turned 
their 2-0-0 turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-0 is nice, but don't 
get cocky, THAT SMELL, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see MOFFIT win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, ROT beat ANOTHER BRICK PT2 and ANOTHER BRICK PT2 lost 6 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DAL SHANG may be getting 
bland, as RESIN stays top dog in the city.  The Blazing Unicorn, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DAL SHANG's trash 
dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  THAT SMELL, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it 
looks like KILLER TUNES avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  And we have NAMASTE Y'ALL in a challenge, going down 
11 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought NAMASTE Y'ALL showed great skill and 
promise when it overcame PORK SODA.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  SLITHER, a glorious 
6-6-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad KILLER TUNES.  We're all going to die 
in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of DAL SHANG.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
