                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to THE DEATH SQUAD, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the PLAYPEN stable.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for MITOCHONDRIAC, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing ANDILLIA 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was WHITE FANG, who dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout 
with GOLGI APPARATUS.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash 
yer clothes.  OPUNTIA did not fight this week so hers title was forfeit.  In front of 
all the crowds, WOOFER took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at 
that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TOBIR arena.  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, TIPPI TURTLE would be president.  Although it 
may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  LITTLE DEVIL of PLAYPEN had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which she won.  I thought 
LITTLE DEVIL showed great skill and promise when she won victory over CRACK BABY.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the TOBIR 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.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
