                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZUWAYZA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  CUNNING RUNTS were 
a bunch of dogs after MONOPOLY got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
Apparently ZUWAYZA isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The 
Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  Another fighter (MILK IS OUT 9-8-0) 
challenged another Duelmaster (ERIC CARTMAN 38-12-0).  Life goes on.  MILK IS OUT was 
reminded on the sands why ERIC CARTMAN is Duelmaster.  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.  THE 
ENQUIRER didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from DID NOT FLUSH 
of BASH BRO HOUSEMATE, who is 18 points below him.  DID NOT FLUSH perhaps got his 
just desserts, seeing as he beat THE ENQUIRER and ended up with 88 recognition 
points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that HAIR IN 
SINK gets in.  He fights people like THIMBLE, 12 points below.  I thought HAIR IN 
SINK showed great skill and promise when he defeated THIMBLE.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Deep Thought -- That strat did exactly what I expected it to, which is both good and
bad.  Just two more turns and we are rid of you forever! -- Assur

The Enquirer -- Great for wisdom.  Application of that wisdom is not as clear. -- Did
Not Flush

How is it that I have the best record on my team with the least skill?!? -- Hair in
Sink

     Divine favor?

This turns ads (missed last turns cutoff by a few hours):

Monopoly -- Condolences, but clearly that Boot was worn out past its usefulness. --
Assur
P.S.  Next time, you might consider training in a different style.  PLs that get 1
shot so often have issues (5 of the 6 matchups my bashers had were 1 shot victories,
the 6th was a 2 shot victory).

The Enquirer -- No comment. -- Hair in Sink

Eric Cartman -- It is with great pleasure that I congratulate you in advance of what
I suspect will be a pleasant retirement.  You've proven nothing to me that I didn't
already know.  Sadly, Milk is Out doesn't need the throne to graduate.  Only
victories which you've denied him.  I do thank you for all the skills, but they
aren't enough to send Milk to an Adepts tourney. -- Assur

Hair in the Sink!  Spaghetti Monster from the Dark Hole!  Vampire Spider Deposits
Web!  Read All About It If You Dare!  Story on page 6, pictures on page 7.  Amazing
Disclosures! -- The Enquirer

Mini Me -- I warned you, and now see!  You're as wide as you are high, and this is
not "mini."  You'll have to change your name to Maxi Me! -- Cooking Lite

Thimble -- That's the entire month's allotment of rain you're carrying away.  Bring
it back! -- Desert Plants

Free Parking -- No art in that. -- Art of the World

Blizzard -- Odd, I could have sworn that spell was supposed to produce a "mild,
cooling breeze."  I wonder if I should have gone with the maplewood wand after all,
instead of box elder?  But they're nearly the same thing, it shouldn't have made a
difference.  Hmm, maybe... iodized salt, instead of plain?  A different flavor of
incense?  Let me look into this and then I'll try again. -- Magic Today

Mini Me -- I understand about the challenges, but if you don't cut back on the fats
and sugars, you won't fit in a "tiny" rocking chair. -- Cooking Lite
