                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZUKAL needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for G-STRING? 
HOT STUFF's proud of her after beating BLUE STREAK and getting 24 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  BLUE STREAK's match with G-STRING cost him a loss of 21 points!  
Was that a tear I saw in SHORT SKIRT's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And 
wasn't MABUSHI fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  I hear HOT STUFF sent SWEET CHEEKS to the 
Dark Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  Hey, warriors get killed by 
other warriors, not by their manager sending them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong 
with SWEET CHEEKS' 8-3-1, HOT STUFF?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  
I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ZUKAL is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

worthy effort. -- Jorja and the Blue Moon

Serpent 2 -- And one of the things I'm bitter about is you pushy snakes! -- Bitterman

Hudson -- That'll teach you to go sailing along polluting our waters! -- Blue Streak

Hicks -- Well... damn. -- Blammo

So much for THAT Beggar.  Maybe he'll learn when to quit. -- Blue Goose
