                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for ROSE, who flew up 17 points in the 
rankings after mashing PAM like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was MONA FROM MAUI, who dropped 11 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with OZAWINDIB.  Isn't that life?  One minute 
you're on top of the world and then next you're laid out on a slab!  NIKKI NAILS was 
killed by EILEEN.  Say no more.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the BONSUR arena.  Did you 
hear that TOOL SHED was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of TOOL SHED's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch SENTINELS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from TOOL SHED.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  And who needs the Dark Arena if 
you've got OLAF around?  This week he decorated his armor with FOXY BROWN.  Who's 
next?  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in BONSUR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Chaotic -- You are one messed up warrior.  I'm sure your manager has some master plan
in place for you that is really long term, but you might want to get some sort of
promise in writing, because right now it just looks like you're going to get killed.
Feel free to challenge again. -- Skara Brae

Saw Horse -- Useful implements, saw horses.  But they usually stand around waiting
for things to get set on them.  But I guess that is sort of what you do.  We just
aren't real gentle in how we put things on (or into) you. -- Whiskeyjack

Bellamore -- One of these days I will find a good matchup.  In the mean time, I will
take the bonus discovered that round. -- Ozawindib

Gumbercules -- An interesting name, for both you and the team.  I simply enjoyed the
win-- and over a tourney warrior! -- Olaf

We salute the tourney participants.  We see that some did well and some excelled, but
the best performances were by graduates.  They won't ever be coming back, so... eh.
Nothing personal, you did good work, but what we really need are people who show up
here every two weeks to fight. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes

Annie Awl -- Aha!  My teammates kept losing to you, but *I* won!  And probably jinxed
myself in saying it, but what the heck.  What's the point of winning if you can't
gloat over your teammates? -- Dellea Dover

Balor -- Have you considered getting a prosthetic eye? -- Mona from Maui
P.S.  And if you have your teeth cleaned, that might help your breath.

Anzahanzek -- The really annoying thing is that you did that while standing on your
head.  It seems unfair.  I mean, why should I be face to foot with you? -- Pearl
White, kicked in the teeth and not happy about it

Woodchip Willa -- Gotta keep those chips under control.  A landscaping tool, yes, but
in the house?  I don't think so! -- Annalee

Ozawindib -- Those stewards!  Slander, that's what it is.  Our time together was NOT
dull.  In fact, you're a fascinating conversationalist.  We should do that more
often.  Maybe at the cabana, with a pitcher of smash. -- Bellamore
