                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
WILLAF brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now let's all watch PUNNY AMINALS' 
heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA win a fight 
and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MATTHILDA beat ANOTHER DA and ANOTHER DA 
lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like WILLAF has some guts at least, 
HORI BULL the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  GOLDEN FLASH 
challenged WILLAF's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice 
of life, WILLAF may be getting bland, as HORI BULL stays top dog in the city.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
WILLAF, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  BLOOD ON THE TRACKS the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this 
mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  Ha 
ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide
