                                      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.  Like, MAN OR BEAST? 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by THE MOTHERSHIP CC!  Way 
to go THE MOTHERSHIP CC!  MVP award for TREME?  VISIONS V2's proud of him after 
beating HUGS-N-KISSES and getting 28 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  PORK 
CHOP GOLEM got smashed by MODERN PHRENOLOGY, and lost 15 points!  Was that a tear I 
saw in RAMEX's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't NEWT ROCKNE fit to be 
tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  SEINFELD was 
the most avoided team.  Is a 23-23-1 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are MAN OR BEAST??  SEINFELD, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't 
get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is DOTTLE popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of ZUWAYZA!  He's got a 16-9-0, is that good?  Some fights 
are really unfair.  How do you think DOTTLE feels about being challenged by SAMUEL 
COLT, 41 points above him?  SAMUEL COLT beat DOTTLE.  No surprise about that.  Really 
I'm not surprised SAMUEL COLT would do such a scummy thing, either.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZUWAYZA ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  TREME of VISIONS V2 wasn't planning on killing 
HUGS-N-KISSES, I bet.  Now he has to worry about being Bloodfeuded, and getting put 
on lists...  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ZUWAYZA is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

We salute the tourney participants, with a special nod to Mad Dog Russo, maybe not
relaxing company, but a tourney victor none the less. -- Jorja and the Magnificent
Mags

An oh-fer turn, with most of our losses being to Very Strange opponents.  Whatever
else, there is variety here.

The Kung-Fu Master KICKED MY WINDOWS OUT, and I'd just gotten them RIGHT.  Does he
realize how HARD it is to find the right window treatment when SNOW is coming?  I may
have to go with faux landscapes mounted in the windows, since fields of snow are so
BORING. -- House Beautiful

Yoga Pants?  Seriously, you want to use YOGA PANTS as a garrote?  That seems
particularly perverse. -- Mother Ghea News

Hugs-n-Kisses -- No wonder I got sick!  That kind of thing is KNOWN to spread all
KINDS of diseases. -- Health Digest
P.S.  A dignified salute from across the room would be sufficient.

Zyane -- I was TRYING to adjust your bumps for the best character development, and
you kept LEAPING AWAY.  This is not HELPING. -- Modern Phrenology

Mad Dog Russo -- I will not let you in my boutique even if you ARE a tourney victor.
What has that to do with anything? -- Everybride
