                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TALCAMA to see 
what's new.  MVP award for GURGLES?  CENTER FOR OLDS' proud of her after beating RUTH 
and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  LUCIFER got smashed by 
SLIPPERY MICKEY, and lost 3 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most 
popular guy in all TALCAMA.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) 
A'S SPECIAL BLEND thinks his 21-34-0 and studly character is good enough to face up 
to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I 
think KILL KITTEN should let A'S SPECIAL BLEND be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said TALCAMA's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Original Arthur's Last Stand?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  CENTER FOR OLDS was TALCAMA's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
SHEPHERDS?  CENTER FOR OLDS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them 
to accept an invitation!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
