     Well, what are you looking at, ZUWAYZA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, MONOPOLY, since CUNNING 
RUNTS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see AURELIUS win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, HAIR IN SINK beat MAGIC TODAY and MAGIC TODAY lost 14 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, THE GREAT GAZOO has 
lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as DID NOT FLUSH 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?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, THE ENQUIRER was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  THE ENQUIRER was 
challenged by one of BASH BRO HOUSEMATE's warriors this turn, with DID NOT FLUSH 
having a lead of 41 points going into the fight.  Question now is, will ZUWAYZA 
accept this sort of tacky behavior?  DID NOT FLUSH beating THE ENQUIRER.  The insult, 
the....yech!  Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, MILK IS OUT 
challenged up 28 to take on SHORTLINE of MONOPOLY.  And, oof!  MILK IS OUT saw stars 
around his helmet, after losing the fight, and disappointing the crowds, I might add. 
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Short Line -- If I wasn't using the same dice, I'd say you were cheating with those
rolls.  But it is always better to be lucky than good.  Last turn, you were lucky.
This turn, I hope to be good. -- Milk is Out

no reason to get off the toilet. -- Did Not Flush

Dualopoly -- Cool name.  But one has to wonder if, growing up, the kids didn't tease
you and call you things like Duelopoly and Duel2poly. -- Hair in Sink
