                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TOBIR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
SHARDAVAN?  DRAGONS GUARD's proud of him after beating BUSTER and getting 26 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  BUSTER's match with SHARDAVAN cost him a loss of 24 
points!  Like THE DOGHOUSE's YELLOW DOG is sweating since he got challenged by 
Duelmaster TIPPI TURTLE!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome YELLOW DOG.  Aren't THE DOGHOUSE proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear 
the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of THE DEATH SQUAD must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
Is there some deep dark secret why DRAGONS GUARD's been avoiding THE DEATH SQUAD so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can THE DOGHOUSE's YELLOW DOG be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  SPONGEBOB 
is being unfair.  It's challenged down 31 against FLOPEAR.  I don't know why they let 
this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) SPONGEBOB beat FLOPEAR.  No surprise about 
that.  Really I'm not surprised SPONGEBOB would do such a scummy thing, either.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TOBIR ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  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.  TOBIR is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Spongebob -- You taste icky.  What have you been soaking up? -- Buster

Burnt Out Hippie -- Darn.  I wanted to bury you in the sand.  It seemed like the
thing to do. -- Yellow Dog
P.S.  People seem to think I should be sorry for killing you.  I didn't notice I'd
killed you, and I bet you didn't notice either.  But I still would have liked to bury
you in the sand.  After all, I'm a dog.  Burying things is what I do.
P.P.S.  And it was you challenged me.  I figure it was just one of those things that
happens in the arena.

Frisky -- Uh... isn't that a CAT food? -- Bill Bitemore
P.S.  My momma told me, you eat cat food, you turn into a cat.  Don't want that.

Tippi Turtle -- I never did like turtles. -- Flopear

Warsong -- Sorry, I only know moon songs.  Howling, you know.  But I'll pay
attention, maybe I can learn yours, too. -- Brown Bear
