                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZUWAYZA.  Like, CUNNING RUNTS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by IDES OF MARCH!  Way to go IDES OF 
MARCH!  MVP award for MODERN SCENE?  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' proud of it after beating 
SHIRL LOCKE and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SHIRL LOCKE's match 
with MODERN SCENE cost her a loss of 9 points!  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome ANTONIUS.  Aren't IDES OF MARCH 
proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was the most avoided team.  Is a 477-609-18 
record really that scary?  I don't know what IDES OF MARCH's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, that's fer 
sher.  Like, is BLACK BELT popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of 
ZUWAYZA!  He's got a 21-12-0, is that good?  Speaking of challenging 29 points above 
did you hear about WEE MAN of CUNNING RUNTS vs. THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' BLACK BELT?  
(And how was that intro!) Like, was that some fighting on WEE MAN's part, or what?  
And he got 26 points out of it!  (besides getting in my report)  Poor BLACK BELT.  
MARCELLUS must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged 
ERIC CARTMAN.  14 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought 
MARCELLUS showed great skill and promise when he subdued ERIC CARTMAN.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 gotta leave.  ZUWAYZA is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Antonius -- You have no sense of the decorative arts.  How sad.  You miss so much. --
Ornament

White Chocolate -- You need more color in your nature.  Too bland. -- Black Belt

Wee Man -- Drat, you're so small, you slipped out of my grip.  Though I'm not sure
even our new Squeez-o-Matic trash compactor could do much with you. -- Trash
Collector

Stewie Griffin -- I suppose that was cunning, if you care for cunning.  But there was
no sense of artistic balance, poor composition and no center of interest, and the
colors were badly chosen. -- The Artist

Evel Dewar -- Hmm, you appear to be one of those unfortunates who attempt to make up
for physical defects by being aggressive and mean.  This is not becoming, though it's
common enough. -- Modern Scene

Stewie Griffin -- Please be careful what COLORS of paint is in the full cans you put
out with the trash!  Visualize how the colors will mix and overlie each other when
they are compacted and burst.  You have a chance to make a superb Artistic Statement
here, if you choose wisely. -- The Artist

Stevie Griffith -- Ignore that stupid Artist.  Just make sure you don't mix the wrong
kind of paints with your biodegradable garbage, that's all. -- Trash Collector

Eric Cartman -- I hope you make a pig of yourself on those frosted donut pancakes
(and NO, we will not take up cooking here!), because it should end up being like
having an anchor in your stomach when it comes to fighting. -- Black Belt

Deep Thought -- Strength of FOUR?  You've got more nerve than I have. -- Jorja
