                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ALJAFIR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, 82ND ILLINOIS, since MIDDLE 
WAY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see T.G.I. FLOYD'S win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, LT MUELLER beat MORRIS ORMRAN and MORRIS ORMRAN lost 6 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.  
ALJAFIR, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  ZOMBIE SQUAD 2 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 82ND ILLINOIS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, SENLUM NOSH was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  SENLUM NOSH was challenged by one of ZOMBIE SQUAD 
2's warriors this turn, with DAWN having a lead of 68 points going into the fight.  
And sorry to say, DAWN won victory over SENLUM NOSH, leaving a bad feeling with the 
crowd.  I think exploitive snob is the term I'm looking for.   
     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.   
     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.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Lt. Olsen -- Today, trust me, I don't care.  I have survived long enough to escape
alive, and that's all I can think about right now. -- Senlum Nosh

This Convicted Assasin's not such hot stuff. -- Caleb Door
P.S.  Has he always been a dwarf?  I forget (too many blows to the head).

I do NOT believe that the Dangerous Criminal, six foot two in his socks (not that he
was wearing socks), is a dwarf.  It's some kind of stupid disguise.  Not convincing.
-- Morris Ormran

You know how it is with people like the Ambitious Guard.  The bigger they are, the
harder they fall.  Or maybe that's "the farther they fall"? -- Fenster Golly

An Embezzling Scribe?  I say to him, Ha!  And again, Ha Ha! -- Debra Elsith
