                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TOBIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with BURNT OUT HIPPIE?  He 
actually beat FOREIGN LEGION's ITALIAN STALLION, and walked away with 17 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE DEATH SQUAD while they watched BURNT OUT 
HIPPIE clobber ITALIAN STALLION.  He lost 16 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  BIO WARFARE's hatred of THE DEATH SQUAD surfaced again as 
CYTOPLASMIC challenged TOBIR's top dog.  CYTOPLASMIC was reminded on the sands why 
TIPPI TURTLE is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice 
on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
THE DEATH SQUAD.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BIO WARFARE ain't 
reelin'!  THE DEATH SQUAD's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, ANDILLIA!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that MICHAEL 
PALIN gets in.  He fights people like ANDILLIA, 9 points below.  I thought MICHAEL 
PALIN showed great skill and promise when he won victory over ANDILLIA.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  So FOREIGN LEGION sent WONG WAY to the Dark Arena.  Big deal.  
Plenty more fighters where WONG WAY came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, Spyreporters... 
WHITE FANG, with hers forgettable 12-14-0,  was killed by GOLGI APPARATUS in a 
forgettable match.  THE DOGHOUSE didn't seem to mind very much.  The ultimate victory 
is one that results in death.  GOLGI APPARATUS of knows this.  Will THE DOGHOUSE 
attempt a Bloodfeud?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Cytoplasmic -- For the skills, I will take the loss. -- White Fang
P.S.  Right, like I had a choice....
P.P.S.  You know, I don't think that's my strategy.  Maybe I should change it.

Spongebob -- The way you soak up the skills is a reproach to us all.  I'll have to
work on that myself. -- Chichi-Hooey
P.S.  Of course, I'm not sure you could teach your way out of a paper 
bag.  You'd probably get everything backward, like a blotting paper.

Michael Palin -- (recoiling quickly)  You're a snake?  I hate snakes!  Euwh, get away
from me! -- Andillia, snake-o-phobe extraordinaire
P.S.  Especially pythons.

Maginot Line -- Ah.  What I expected but not, alas, what I was prepared for.  Drat.
-- Gerbent
P.S.  Too bad you're a golem, or I'd invite you to go get mokus with me.

Red Blood Cell -- Gods, did you see what the Commission DID to me?  They say I'm a
CAT.  I might be scarred for life by that. -- Scruff
P.S.  I may be scruffy, but *I* know I'm a dog, and don't you forget it.  Best friend
to the canopener.

Amazing, not a single standby fought today!  That's not what we've come to expect
here, but it's good.  Let's keep that up. -- Leeta, The Doghouse

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
