                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to BLACK AND BLUES, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the PSYCHO 
SQUAD stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for DOOPHUS, who flew up 26 points in the 
rankings after mashing BIG BILL BROONZY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was BIG BILL BROONZY, who dropped 21 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with DOOPHUS.  Our battling duelmaster 
HARD CORE has managed to hold the title, fending off SKIP JAMES' none too subtle 
advances.  Better luck next time, BLACK AND BLUES.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TRANSEL have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!--

Who is the Dangerous Criminal and why?  It's unfair and unreasonable.  He should be
on our team, not beating us up! -- Shirley Knott and Son of John

Well, um, you know, this Thetas Toman?  Him, too. -- Doophus

Big Bill Broonzy -- An easy win, when Alice Ain't Here. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

This Bumble-fingers, he's kind of a joke, isn't he?  I'll tear him limb from limb and
eat him for breakfast. -- Tom Tiger
P.S.  Or maybe a midnight snack.
