                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  RIZTAB needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  The guys at THE UNDEAD 
like really pulled together to get a 5-0-0 this turn, moving up by 4.  MVP award for 
SUN RA?  BLUE NOTE's proud of him after beating HEZASH THE MOUTH and getting 18 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  HELIODORUS got smashed by MUD MUD FROG, and 
lost 8 points!  Like DARK ARENA's SPYMASTER TORRIC is sweating since he got Dark 
Arena Challenged by Duelmaster AESARA!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think AESARA should let SPYMASTER TORRIC be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said RIZTAB's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  DREAMERS was RIZTAB's most avoided 
team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what THE UNDEAD's been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from DREAMERS, that's fer sher.  
Can SWEET MAGIC's NELLI POLITANA be more popular than me?  She was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?  KORYNN FROG is being unfair.  He's challenged 
down 16 against PROCLUS.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd better 
shut up) Is this how KAOS FROGS advances, by having their members (KORYNN FROG) fight 
people that are really below them (PROCLUS)?  Ooh!  Did SKELETON really know what he 
was doing when he challenged TAFFY?  A 15-11-1 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  
I don't know what it means.) Do you think SKELETON knew something before he 
challenged TAFFY?  He got a win and 21 points.  What will the guy do next?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like, who is this gal???  AESARA gets sent to the Dark Arena, battles 
SPYMASTER TORRIC, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet DREAMERS manager is surprised!  
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.  RIZTAB is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Oh-five, but that's not the big deal today.  Ha!  Grubstaker, that dirty little man,
devastated by Three Olives!  That is so rich!  We love it. -- the rest of Sweet Magic

Three Olives -- My teammates laugh, but I know you for what you are!  Destroyers of
pizza! -- Grubstaker

Well, looks like our personals from last time didn't make it, so there'll be twice as
many from us today.  Which means, of course, twice as many as usual.

Our congratulations to Aesara.  A dream realized, eh? -- Jorja and Sweet Magic

Ammonius -- That's because I'm doing salt-water taffy today. -- Taffy

Mud Mud Frog -- I tried working with colored clays this time:  earthenware red, china
white, albany slip which is quite chocolaty.  Good stripes.  How do you like it? --
Nelli Politana

How embarrassing. -- Sugar Baby

But we beat OUR standbys. -- Charlene and Grubstaker
