                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You may be a Great Gazoo, but your diet is insane.  Lucky for you, I can fix
that.  Less fat, and only the GOOD fats:  olive oil, butter, lard....  No sugar at
all, fruits for you, and maybe a bit of honey now and then.  And LOTS of sun-lite.

                                    Cooking Lite

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUWAYZA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see MAGIC TODAY win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GOLDA MEIR 
beat HEMLOCK and HEMLOCK lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as THE GREAT GAZOO takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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.  What's 
the big D?  CUNNING RUNTS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BASH BRO HOUSEMATE.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, THE ENQUIRER was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  Now look at this.  DID NOT FLUSH challenged down 36 
against THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' THE ENQUIRER.  What a weasel!  And golly gee, DID NOT 
FLUSH subdued THE ENQUIRER.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  I guess I can 
give a little credit to NAPOLEON of CUNNING RUNTS for challenging up by 25 to FREE 
PARKING.  NAPOLEON lost to get 28 points of recognition.   
     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?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Hair in Sink -- If you don't like hospitals that much you should probably be more
careful who you upchallenge.  ;-)  Still, 5 learn, no complaints here! -- Shortline

Magic Today -- Funny, that's also the title of the periodical scroll I read while in
the infirmary. -- Dualopoly

Hemlock -- I drank what? -- Water Works

Cooking Lite / Jorja -- Congrats, congrats, congrats!  I had The Great Gazoo figured
for undefeated.  Cooking Lite, in two fights, couldn't jump Milk is Out.  Milk is
Out, in two fights, couldn't jump The Great Gazoo.  One would think...  With the win,
you deserve everything you received last turn, the throne and an invite. -- Assur
P.S.  Or maybe it was bad mojo because Deep Thought didn't send in a Duelmaster's
Column.

Meanwhile, Milk is Out continues to prove a theory I have on how to make under-
performing bashers.  It is quite possible that my toilet challenged warrior could
receive his invite before I finally am able to put the milk away for good! -- Assur

Magic Today -- Perhaps we could dress him up to look like a beautiful female
assistant? -- Assur

Shortline -- Sorry, I thought I had my tickets.  Next time, I'll double check before
I even think about boarding. -- Hair in Sink

The Enquirer -- I've started reading old issues again.  You very well might be the
most magnificent mag ever! -- Did Not Flush

Did Not Flush -- New Discovery!  Self-Flushing Toilets!  Amazing Use of Golems!  Read
all about it on page ten. -- The Enquirer
P.S.  Surprising Disappearances from Behind Houses!  No Clues at Scene.  Story on
page twelve.

Dualopoly -- Not a problem, I can just play with both hands. -- Magic Today

Napoleon -- Not all deserts are as easy as Egypt, you know.  You can't get around ME
by shooting the nose off a sphinx! -- Desert Plants

Free Parking -- I was lulling you into complacency.  It isn't like I'm a HOUSEPLANT,
you know. -- Desert Plants
