                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ALJAFIR.  MVP award for KAIREEN LAMAR?  
MIDDLE WAY's proud of her after beating VETERAN MERCENARY and getting 17 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  EDGAR ALLAN POE's match with WHIRLING FROGGY cost him a 
loss of 12 points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!) 
Oh well, welcome BELLONA CHIST.  Aren't MIDDLE WAY proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the 
wiseguy that said ALJAFIR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Vile Vizier?  
Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ALJAFIR ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  It was kind of sad, seeing old FOOTBALL stumbling around the 
arena, before ZOMBIE finished her off.  Oh well!  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Robert Frost -- That was... impressive.  I was impressed.  Are you going to do your
column in verse? -- Bellona Chist

Reaper -- It's probably a seasonal thing.  Once we get into the later half of the
year, you'll do better, because reaping is in season then. -- Zebd Arvin

Candied Yams -- Not something I care for much.  Might just as well eat sugar straight
out, you know? -- Alida Bern

Yeats -- Too intellectual for me.  I couldn't get a grip on it. -- Senlum Nosh

Cornbread Stuffing -- So, maybe next time, you'll do it MY way, which is:  you make
the cornbread and serve it, forget the bird. -- Kaireen Lamar
