                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TRANSEL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now let's all watch BLACK AND BLUES' 
heads swell from their 3-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see WILLIE BROWN win a fight and 
gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PRETZEL beat PRIVATE 4 and PRIVATE 4 lost 11 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, TRANSEL may 
be getting bland, as DESMOND DOSS stays top dog in the city.  The Victory Tavern, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
TRANSEL's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  MACHINES OF WAR was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was MEDAL OF HONOR Y2.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, FLUFFY BOY was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  FLUFFY BOY was challenged by one of MEDAL OF HONOR Y2's 
warriors this turn, with PRIVATE 1 having a lead of 17 points going into the fight.  
Question now is, will TRANSEL accept this sort of tacky behavior?  PRIVATE 1 beating 
FLUFFY BOY.  The insult, the....yech!  And we have CRUSADER in a challenge, going 
down 9 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought CRUSADER showed great skill and 
promise when he won victory over ALICE AIN'T HERE.  All right, so I slept through it! 
Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  I could say I saw this coming, but so 
could anyone else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  ALBERT KING's 17-9-0 has earned him 
the Dark Arena.  And sending ALBERT KING to the Dark Arena was supposed to be one of 
your better ideas, BLACK AND BLUES?  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry 
if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in TRANSEL to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Our congratulations to Albert King.  We can't stay for the party, we have to keep
moving because somebody is hunting us in the alleys! -- Not-a-Nut Jones

One-four, and it was (shudder) Dark Fluffy, also known as Fluffy Boy (a misnomer if I
ever encountered one) who got it.  Gonzaga is lucky to have gotten away from him! --
Not-a-Nut Jones

Crusader -- I don't think Alice noticed.  She wasn't all there, you see. -- Not-a-Nut
Jones

Pretzel -- This yoga stuff is weird.  No one's knees were meant to bend that way. --
Knees McGee
P.S.  And it's all YOUR FAULT.

Gonzaga -- Your offence was REALTIVELY minor, thus you get this chance to repent and
mend your ways.  Otherwise, I will COME FOR YOU. -- Dark Fluffy

Legionnaire -- Oh, sure, go around in gangs!  Hang out in dark alleys and AMBUSH
people!  Some of us know what you're up to! -- Son of John

Torpedo -- Not for me, surely Not Me!
