                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SAUSAGE PARTY, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
BOOZER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was BOOZER, who dropped 17 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with SAUSAGE PARTY.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was CARDOW HUNTERS' STARFLOWER, who was turned away from the Duelmastership 
by METHODSOFRATIONALITY.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of BOOZER, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Well, just when you thought it 
was safe to put a new warrior in the arena.  No no!  HARRY'S SHADOW, a mere girl, was 
slain by SCUMORAMA this turn.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both 
yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the DULLENS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  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

Sausage Party -- I don't *dislike* sausages, but they don't distract me the way the
do certain of my teammates.  Still, it was a good try on your part, and I won't turn
*down* the sausages. -- Starflower, ready with the buns

Boozer -- Wha?  There wash a figh?  I din' notish.  Good shtuff you brought. -- Anvil
the Truly Sloshed

It's a fact that I do NOT believe the Lost Potato Farmer beat me, despite him having
more points than I did going in.  He's just capitalizing on the "Stuffed Baked
Potato" craze.  I'll stuff and bake HIM. -- Laughter Redknife

Snuffy the Kittycat?  Bah.  Probably Goldilocks's pet. -- Bearfoot
