                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUKAL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see MAINE COON win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BOO 
BOO KITTY beat MRI and MRI lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, ZUKAL may be getting bland, as PUSS stays top dog in the city.  
The Blue Boar Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get 
this stuff?  From ZUKAL's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, BLUE HAVEN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice CAT-FU challenging down 27 points to fight 
BLUE HAVEN, ARENA FELINES doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult to 
honor.  CAT-FU was defeated by BLUE HAVEN!  Ok, CAT-FU want to fight my grandmother 
next turn?  Huh?  I guess I can give a little credit to ME-OUCH of ARENA FELINES for 
challenging up by 19 to TRUE BLUE.  ME-OUCH lost to get 30 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, RAHB JR. of THE MONGOLOIDS has added the final loss to his 8-6-0.  Tee hee!  
We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of ZUKAL.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
