                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ALJAFIR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see GABOGOOL win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GABOGOOL beat 
MORRIS ORMRAN and MORRIS ORMRAN lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ALJAFIR may be getting bland, as LT. OLSEN 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?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the ALJAFIR arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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 
Clemens
