     Well, what are you looking at, ALJAFIR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, MIDDLE WAY, since ALMOST 
THANKSGIVING took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  IN MIDDLE 
EARTH turned their 3-0-0 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any 
better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, 
but don't get cocky, ALMOST THANKSGIVING, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see GREEN BEANS win a fight and 
gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MARX beat BARNUM CHELLS and BARNUM CHELLS lost 
14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ALJAFIR 
may be getting bland, as CORNBREAD STUFFING stays top dog in the city.  The Vile 
Vizier, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From ALJAFIR's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ALJAFIR to get a drink than The Vile Vizier! 
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
ALJAFIR.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the 
kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Cornbread Stuffing -- Dare I say, "You knocked the stuffing out of me"?  I didn't
enjoy it, but I survived, so I suppose that makes it a "good fight."  Couldn't prove
it by me! -- Kaireen Lamar

Green Beans -- Ah, Kaireen... she's a bit of a sissy, in a good kind of way, you
know.  Now, you caused me injury and pain.  As, of course, you were supposed to do
so.  But unlike Kaireen, I gloried in it!  And I will hold myself in readiness to
return the gift to you at the earliest opportunity. -- Senlum Nosh

Candied Yams -- I get bilious just thinking about you, so I was, perhaps, harsh.  Or
perhaps not harsh, considering that you ARE candied yams. -- Bellona Chist

Aragon -- It isn't enough to have a heroic name and origin, you have to LIVE your
heroism.  And you aren't cutting it, kid. -- Barnum Chells

Cran-Berry -- Better you than a blue berry.  At least you have flavor. -- Caleb Door
