                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  MONOPOLY's walking tall now that 
they went 4-1-0 their first time out.  But we know what awaits them soon...  What's 
with THIMBLE?  She actually beat ZUWAYZA's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 
more points from the fight.  Major screwup at THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  THE ENQUIRER 
lost 16 points to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe THE 
ENQUIRER will provide more easy wins...  What a role model for ZUWAYZA's young 'uns!  
ERIC CARTMAN becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure ZUWAYZA 
is excited about FARM WEEKLY, the new Duelmaster from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of ZUWAYZA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  ZUWAYZA 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Eric Cartman -- Well, yes, I suppose I do see some value to my operation in having
"connections" with a carter, but I had never before now pictured you as someone who
would be at all interested in hauling mangolds to market.  Let's talk about this in a
more relaxed environment. -- Farm Weekly

Dr. Ruth tells all!  Many flee to the antipodes in embarrassment!  Story and photos
on page 9. -- The Enquire

Mini Me -- I hadn't thought of building a railroad in your scale; it would be a
challenge.  But I can handle challenges.... -- Model Railroader

The Mordant Deserter claims that introduced "weed" plants such as the tumbleweed are
"good."  He even had a whole elaborate argument about it, involving some weird
concept he called "evolution," but it isn't plausible, you know.  What's more, it
isn't FAIR, and that is important.  Desert plants are especially sensitive to such
issues. -- Desert Plants

Ghost of Master Blaster -- I *tried* to warn you about the flour.  If you aren't
careful, a lot of flour in the air really will explode, as you, alas for you,
discovered. -- Cooking Lite
P.S.  But it did clear the bird's nest out of my chimney, so all is not lost.
