                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
BONSUR.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for MAULI LAMA, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  WOODCHIP WILLA was overcame by ANNALEE 
and drops 11 points.  Our battling duelmaster MARY ANN has managed to hold the title, 
fending off DELLEA DOVER's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, BEACH 
BABES.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the BONSUR arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid TOOL SHED, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does 
BONSUR really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
TOOL SHED + Weapons That go Boom = CHURCH LADIES + Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, but 
if challenges were votes, ANNIE AWL would be president.  Although it may be a contest 
she doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, PAM went 
after MONA FROM MAUI, who was higher by 25 points.  Well, when the dust settled, PAM 
was beat by MONA FROM MAUI.  MARGO of CHURCH LADIES had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 15 points in a challenge which she won.  I thought MARGO showed 
great skill and promise when she defeated ANNIE AWL.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
