                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt BONSUR will ever be the same.  And let's see, SANDY SHORE fought THE USEROUS 
MERCHANT and gained 15 points and contributed to BEACH BABES' 2-3-0.  LAGUNA LIL has 
lost to PINK NOSE, falling 10 points, while helping make BEACH BABES a 2-3-0 turn.  
The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and TURTLEFACE remains BONSUR's 
top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the ESPANA stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on BONSUR, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided ESPANA stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was WASTELAND II.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was BEACH BABES' warrior 
LAGUNA LIL.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!  CLARITIN 
JUNKIE of WASTELAND II had better have a good reason for challenging down 13 points 
in a challenge which it won.  I thought CLARITIN JUNKIE showed great skill and 
promise when it bested UMBRELLA MAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that BONSUR has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, BONSUR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in BONSUR and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Dikembe Mutumbo -- (raising his umbrella and brandishing it at the sky)  Ha!  Take
that, you fiend!  And that and that! -- Umbrella Man, with a rush of victory-
testosterone to the brain

Pink Nose -- Well, use sunscreen, then!  Don't blame ME. -- Salton Seahorse

Bomba Yearn -- I could understand it if you were yearning for boNbons, but not that
yucky bomba stuff.  It's all artificial sweeteners.  Bad for you. -- Laguna Lil

Condemned Pirate -- So what are the grounds for condemnation?  Are you not up to code
somehow?  Bad sea-legs?  Mustaches that won't swoop?  Tell me, I'm fascinated. --
Beach Betty

Odd.  The Cult Member has a bone through his nose, and it looks to me like it's a
tiger's wishbone.  Disturbing, too, because you can do horrible things with a tiger's
wishbone if you have the right tomes. -- Sandy Shore

Lord, or as it might be (but I shudder at the thought) Lady Protector Sweaty -- Queen
Gemra remains adamant that there are no free lands or, she points out, free lunches
to be had in Bonsur.  I seem to have missed the offer of a free lunch.  But it would
probably have been beans and onions, and that is definitely not "my kind of thing."
The queen suggests, instead, that you bend your mental efforts to discovering why
there are so few active warriors here, and also as to why there are even fewer
personals.  She does like a chatty newsletter. -- Arenamater Ilhume'
P.S.  This should have appeared last time, but for some reason, probably a dark plot,
it did not.
