                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUWAYZA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, JAGUAR WARRIORS, since 
FUNKY FOLK took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see MODERN MATURITY win a fight and gain 6 points, 
terribly.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting bland, as SUE 
SHE stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else 
do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ZUWAYZA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
JAGUAR WARRIORS 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 FUNKY FOLK.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     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 ZUWAYZA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of ZUWAYZA.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Jill Oppy -- RUN DOWN!  And not even by a class act, either.  I call that hard.  I
call it...insulting.  The machine age is the BANE of all true athletes. -- Sports Ill

The Mordant Deserter is so SLOW.  I just ran him down--he was riding a HORSE, the
idiot--and trampled him under my wheels. -- Hot Rod

Elves are so fragile.  Even half elves.  They're at least half as fragile.  And
juvenile.  I figure the half-elven Osksi Noble's problem was that he had a peter-pan
complex.  He didn't want to grow up, and he was, ahem, a delicate little boy.  I
don't believe in delicate little boys. -- Modern Maturity

Unnamed Cult Member -- Why not?  Good gods, man, fast cars ARE a cult, and very
cutting edge one at that!  You should have leapt at the chance.  You should be
begging me for another chance! -- Hot Rod

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
