                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRANSEL to see 
what's new.  Too bad, PSYCHO SQUAD, but BLACK AND BLUES was just too good to be 
stopped.  MVP award for DOOPHUS?  PSYCHO SQUAD's proud of him after beating ROBERT 
JOHNSON and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SHIRLEY KNOTT got 
smashed by BIG BILL BROONZY, and lost 12 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is 
being unfair?  I think SKIP JAMES should let SON OF JOHN 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.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  Like, is ROBERT JOHNSON popular, 
or what?  He was challenged the most in all of TRANSEL!  He's got a 11-18-0, is that 
good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TRANSEL ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  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.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Our congratulations to Skip James, who is skipping out on us. -- Jorja and some of
the Psycho Squad

We're getting awards for being a TEAM?  Outrageous!  Unacceptable!  We Psychos are
against teamwork in principle.  Who do I take this protest to?  This must be FIXED!
We should have individual awards, not TEAM awards. -- Shirley Knott

Robert Johnson -- And again.  I don't mind. -- Son of John

Torpedo -- What?  Was there something in that beer?  I can't seem to remember
anything. -- Doophus

Dooph -- You never remember anything.  Don't sweat it. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

Big Bill Broonzy -- Amazing, you were devastated, and Alice Ain't even HERE! -- Not-
a-Nut Jones
P.S.  I've got papers to prove I'm not a nut, you know.  I'm not just sounding off
here.

Standbys.  Ridiculous little people. -- Shirley Knott

Elmore James -- Didn't you LISTEN last time?  You're my lamb, and I'm supposed to rip
you apart.  You aren't following the script here! -- Tom Tiger
