                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Cheese Louise, Shy Guy, you're not supposed to be too shy to hit back!  Hmm.
How about if we go out somewhere and HAVE some Cheese Louise, I hear there's a
restaurant here than can do it fairly well, and talk about this?

                                    Jammy Larke

P.S.  And we can have Jammy Larks for desert.  That'd work.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out KALTOS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for GOOMBARIO?  PAPER MARIO's proud of him after beating 
VETERAN MERCENARY and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  IRVINA 
KORL got smashed by STAR KIK, and lost 14 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is 
being unfair?  I think JAMMY LARKE should let TUBBA BLUBBA 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.  CASSEY'S CREW 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 114-139-9 record really that scary?  I don't know 
what PAPER MARIO's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from CASSEY'S CREW, that's fer sher.  Like, is FELISSA HURM popular, or what?  She 
was challenged the most in all of KALTOS!  She's got a 18-6-0, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

I apologize if we Paper Marios have a Duelmaster, as there will be no column.  We are
on vacation. -- Luigi, Paper Marios

     Some people have all the luck!

Hopefully our challenges will have been good ones, as we guessed our way into them.
-- Luigi

I want to graduate!  I need to!  Everybody is stepping on my blue suede shoes.
*sniffle* -- Tiny Toes

Tiny Toes -- I suppose that us being "there for each other" is a blessing.  At least,
today I'm considering it as such.  Maybe I'll even see if I can find you some tiny
socks, it's been cold lately. -- Felissa Hurm

Tubba Blubba -- Listen, I am NOT going to become "inspired to cook" by you.  NO WAY!
We don't need another "cooking team" on the roster, Caleam and Riztab is enough. --
Katirona Murh

Goombario -- I dunno, maybe Kat's being too narrow.  I could do roasted peanuts. --
Pendru Rost
P.S.  With or without embelishments.

Star Kik -- Well, we were TOTALLY there for each other today.  I suppose five fights
between the two teams beats ten fights with standbys.  I guess.  Thanks for the win,
by the way.  I needed it. -- Irvina Korl

Goombario -- You were supposed to stay out of the casinos, man!  Those places are
DANGEROUS. -- Pendru Rost
