                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUWAYZA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see TIM PANNI win a fight and gain 
16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MODERN SCENE beat MORT TIFFIDE and MORT TIFFIDE lost 
6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like ZUWAYZA has some guts at least, 
PUBLIUS the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  PUBLIUS challenged 
ERIC CARTMAN for ZUWAYZA's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety 
is the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting bland, as PUBLIUS stays top dog in the 
city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to 
know what's new, don't you, ZUWAYZA?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  CUNNING 
RUNTS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care 
to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was IDES OF MARCH.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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!  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

Old personals, sorry about the formatting slip last time.

Well, it would appear that the news-agent can't get the new magazines on my
subscription list!  I'm looking into this, but who knows how long it will take to get
his attention? -- Jorja, the (few) Magnificent Mags

Eric Cartman -- I don't know that you would really qualify as a runt, but I'm sure we
could improve your image, if an image problem is what it is, by a little judicious
ornamentation. -- Ornament

Al Byno -- The problem with wearing a lot of white is that it really shows the dirt.
-- Trash Collector

Project XY -- You aren't modern at all.  You're practically REACTIONARY! -- Modern
Scene

Our congratulations to Bart Simpson. -- Jorja and the Mags

Deep Thought -- No, sorry.  That would have to be a policy decision from the highest
levels of the Commission, and they don't seem to see it as a problem.  Or, at least,
as a problem greater than attempting to make changes would be.  The system isn't real
flexible, and there could be other problems--a lot of people do NOT want to see any
changes at all. -- Jorja

Current stuff:

Mini Me -- I didn't need this.  Just because I told you that the tongue-ring looked
silly! -- Ghost of Ornament

The Userous Merchant?  An old fuddy-duddy.  Usery is so old-fashioned! -- Modern
Scene

Mort Tiffide -- And so you should be, putting something like that out in the trash!
I've probably ruptured something lifting it. -- Trash Collector

Tim Panni -- Hmm, you look like you belong in a band, yes?  I want a band for the
station I'm setting up.  What do you play? -- Model Railroader

Phil Agree -- Not much place for that on a farm, though I admit it looks pretty in
town. -- Farm Weekly

Ah, heck, a formating glitch last time!  Since my words are so valuable--because of
being the only ones here--I'm going to send 'em again. -- Jorja

Jorja -- I'm terribly sorry about Ornament, my warriors have fought against her so
many times they almost felt like family.  Mini Me is a vicious little bugger, but he
was only running with a 7 kd and aiming for the left leg.  These low df bashers can
never hit wht they're aiming for.  I hope her replacement is worthy of a Mag title.
-- Deep Thought

All -- Well I am off to ADM as Deep Thought's second graduate, an aimed blow and a
parry lunger, eight more styles to go.  In case anyone wants to know my stats...
6(7)-6(7)-12-17-15-7-21 and I like to fight open handed.  My ship is about to leae so
good luck and I will be leaving my pair of crossed daggers for Zuwayza's Hall of Fame
since I won't be needing them anymore.  I'm taking my skateboard with me. -- Bart
Simpson, Cowagunga Dudes
