                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, BONSUR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, UNDER JOLLY ROGER, since 
ESPANA took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now let's all watch 
WASTELAND II's 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 SALTON SEAHORSE win a 
fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SALTON SEAHORSE beat CLARITIN JUNKIE 
and CLARITIN JUNKIE lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  SWEATY challenged 
BONSUR's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
BONSUR may be getting bland, as HAILSTORM stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a 
very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, BONSUR?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  BONSUR, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
WASTELAND II the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
ESPANA.  Ha ha ha ha!  UMBRELLA MAN was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  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

Turtleface -- I loathe turtles, you know.  They're ugly and scary, and I want nothing
to do with them.  You can't even tell if they're boy turtles or girl turtles.  You
can't tell what they're UP to.  Disgusting. -- Umbrella Man

Dikembe Mutumbo -- You know, we've fought you a lot.  Let's not any more.  Let's
party, instead.  Come on over to the cabana, we've got some good vin. -- Laguna Lil

Claritin Junkie -- I expected you to fall asleep.  Why didn't you? -- Salton Seahorse
