                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZUWAYZA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
HEMLOCK?  SERPENTS HOLD II's proud of it after beating WATER WORKS and getting 17 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  MILK IS OUT's match with KUNG-FU MASTER cost 
him a loss of 15 points!  Like THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' COOKING LITE is sweating since 
he got TV challenged by Duelmaster THE GREAT GAZOO!  Was that a tear I saw in COOKING 
LITE's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't THE GREAT GAZOO fit to be 
tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  CUNNING RUNTS was the most avoided team.  Is a 
152-98-5 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why BASH BRO 
HOUSEMATE's been avoiding CUNNING RUNTS so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?  Like, is COOKING LITE popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all 
of ZUWAYZA!  He's got a 17-10-2, is that good?  Some fights are really unfair.  How 
do you think THE ENQUIRER feels about being challenged by DID NOT FLUSH, 30 points 
above him?  Is this how BASH BRO HOUSEMATE advances, by having their members (DID NOT 
FLUSH) fight people that are really below them (THE ENQUIRER)?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZUWAYZA ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
