                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Seriously...you guys...you can't beat me, I'm hell-a-good at kickin' butt in the
arena.
     Cooking Lite?  COOKING LITE?  There's no way I'm lettin' somebody named Cooking
Lite beat me.  I'll smack you down and rub Cheesy Poofs in your face...just try me.
     Looks like the Street Walkers didn't show up, I thought it smelled better around
here.  Bring those skanks back, I got a quarter burning a hole in my pocket.
     Bash Bro Housemate...(lifts his winter hat and scratches his head)...what the
hell does that mean? Assurba...Assurbani....Assurbonerpull...hehehe.
     All right, I guess I'll be here a little while longer guess I'll grab a
Magnificient Magazine and head for the can.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to CUNNING RUNTS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the BASH BRO 
HOUSEMATE stable.  Call it luck at the right time or bribes in the right hands, but 
the new team MAN OR BEAST? scored a 5-0-1 record this week.  Hey everybody, watch out 
for THE GREAT GAZOO, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing DID NOT 
FLUSH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to 
walk out on the sands.  DID NOT FLUSH was bested by THE GREAT GAZOO and drops 15 
points.  Unlike most arenas, ERIC CARTMAN managed to get his challenge off against 
the 12-4-2 COOKING LITE.  Our battling duelmaster ERIC CARTMAN has managed to hold 
the title, fending off COOKING LITE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next 
time, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try 
and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid STREET WALKERS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does ZUWAYZA really have that 
many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause BASH 
BRO HOUSEMATE beats feet every time STREET WALKERS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, MILK IS OUT would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  MILK IS OUT of BASH BRO 
HOUSEMATE had better have a good reason for challenging down 12 points in a challenge 
which he won.  I thought MILK IS OUT showed great skill and promise when he subdued 
MINI ME.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The

The Great Gazoo -- Assur says I get the 'honor' of facing you this turn.  He also
told me that if I get the opportunity, to eliminate my bad habit for this turn and to
flush you thoroughly.  Nothing personal, but he's the boss, so... -- Did Not Flush

The Enquirer -- Compared to previous editions, that last one was most disappointing.
Though if you're only gonna teach one thing, at least you taught me something I can
use. -- Milk is Out

     To always keep a spare half-gallon on hand?

Eric Cartman -- Assuming I'm in range and you're still DM, I'm calling you out for
turn 641!  You've ruled over this arena too long and we are tired of it.  I may not
have what it takes, but I'm gonna try anyways!  The commission should have granted
you immortality already, but something has gone wrong.  Assur believes it is a
conspiracy funded by bribes and kickbacks.  He even thinks he knows the guilty party,
but cannot speak publicly because there is no physical proof left by the scumlord
responsible.  You however, are one of the beneficiaries of this conspiracy, not
getting the call when you should have.  In the meantime, Assur is preparing me with
top secret scum hunting tactics.  I will be as ready as I can be when the time comes.
-- Milk is Out

Monopoly -- Looks like we messed up your bathroom good last turn. -- Hair in your
Sink and Unflushed Toilet ftw

Milk Is Out -- Amazing Dairy Shortage!  Hoarding Suspected!  Inside story on page 5!
-- The Enquirer

Eric Cartman -- You want to eat without counting the cost?  Fine, be that way!  See
if I care when you turn into a greasy beach ball. -- Cooking Lite

The Great Gazoo -- That's a name?  Good heavens.  You should probably be talking to
my teammate, Magic Today, rather than to me. -- Desert Plants

The Boot -- I know you can get it in a museum show.  That does NOT make it art,
dammit!  Any more than a soup can is art.  Cheese louise! -- Art of the World
P.S.  Technical skill in representation I will grant you--and the soup can guy.  But
it still isn't art.

Ah, a Persistent Beggar.  Excellent, a subject with no one to enquire as to his
situation.  Just what I needed.... -- Magic Today

Persistent Beggar Disappears!  Remarkable Vanishing Act!  Read all about it, page 8.
Plague of Toads, No Explanation!  Story on page 3! -- The Enquirer
