                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly BONSUR games.  OBROJOBO caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LONG BEACH LILA and was awarded 23 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, OBROJOBO put down 
LONG BEACH LILA, causing her to lose 21 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
his absence and inability to defend the throne, SOLSKJAER has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of MOSES, for with his arena victory he 
may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over 
half of the old women in BONSUR seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In BONSUR "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS.  Indeed it was AMEN!.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  PENSACOLITA take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in BONSUR.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in BONSUR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Big Bad Daddy Jr. -- You might not be an ogre, but the name would fit. -- Ogresmasher

Moses -- You weren't all that hard to track down in the wilderness.  It is a shame we
lost Ramses a while back.  I think he would have enjoyed the match-up. -- Huntsman

Fare well, Bonsur!  Party down at the beach tonight to celebrate by departure! --
Huntsman

Lila -- Impressive on both the win and the learns.  Ouch. -- Erasmus

Blue Cube Guy -- What a square!  Even your corners have corners.  I'm amazed. --
Galveston Gilly
P.S.  But you probably won't float well.  Keep tipping over, I bet!

Solskjaer -- If you say so.  Just don't ask me to pronounce it. -- Sandy Shore
P.S.  Secret admirer?  As if!

Baby Jesus -- Contrary to dwarven propaganda, us elves do NOT eat babies. --
Pensacolita

Erasmus -- You are an INCREDIBLE teacher!  Thanks.  (throws her arms around him and
kisses him with enthusiasm) -- Long Beach Lila

Count Smackula -- What a tedious fellow you are, to be sure.  I bet between us we
were something like totally unpopular with the fans. -- N'Orleans Nora, not overly
concerned

Wow, nobody died here this time.  Somebody's slipping, and a good thing! -- the Beach
Babes
