                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for MORDANT.  Like, RUN DMC had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by SWEORDMASTERS!  Way to go 
SWEORDMASTERS!  MVP award for PRAETTIG?  SWEORDMASTERS' proud of him after beating 
BUSTER MARNE and getting 12 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  CATTY WENCH's 
match with ARNOLD ZIFFEL cost her a loss of 5 points!  Like BOOZE's ROT GUT is 
sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster WYRTHA!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think WYRTHA should let ROT GUT be Duelmaster for a 
while, without fighting about it.  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.  RUN DMC was 
MORDANT's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark 
secret why SWEORDMASTERS' been avoiding RUN DMC so much?  Or is it just that they're 
too scared?  Can HOMICIDAL MANIACS' MASKED MURDERER II be more popular than me?  He 
was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  SANDRA DEE is being unfair.  
She's challenged down 23 against MASKED MURDERER II.  I don't know why they let this 
stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) Is this how CHUCK'S PINUPS advances, by having 
their members (SANDRA DEE) fight people that are really below them (MASKED MURDERER 
II)?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think DOMESTIC DERVISH feels about 
being challenged by BELLE BENNETT, 19 points above her?  BELLE BENNETT beat DOMESTIC 
DERVISH.  No surprise about that.  Really I'm not surprised BELLE BENNETT would do 
such a scummy thing, either.  I'm not so sure BEEFEATER knew all the facts when he 
challenged MY ADIDAS of RUN DMC.  I saw BEEFEATER stumbling and dribbling at Conan's 
Place last week...  MY ADIDAS bested BEEFEATER, and was I surprised (right!).  But 
its a good thing MY ADIDAS could stop laughing long enough to give BEEFEATER a good 
pounding.  People were asking me did THE SAUCE REALLY challenge SCHOOLBUS DRIVER?  
(all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, 
or anything, but SCHOOLBUS DRIVER wants me to write about it since she bested THE 
SAUCE.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like, who is this guy???  RUN'S HOUSE gets sent to the Dark Arena, 
battles HIGH ELF, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet RUN DMC manager is surprised!  
Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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

another standby.  They deserve that.
