                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to JUST CHILLIN, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for BROOKS AND DUNN, who flew up 21 points in 
the rankings after mashing TAMMY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  TAMMY was beat by BROOKS AND DUNN 
and drops 12 points.  Our battling duelmaster SUPPLY SIDE has managed to hold the 
title, fending off CRIMSON WONDER's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, 
MEDIEVAL CHAOS.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SOLVEN arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE REPUBLICANS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does SOLVEN really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling 
your rasberries, cause KELLUMBO'S KIDS beats feet every time THE REPUBLICANS smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this BROOKS AND DUNN you ask, with 100 points 
and a 15-17-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, KOFI ANNAN went after SNOWBALL, who was higher by 25 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, KOFI ANNAN put to death SNOWBALL.  CHRISTINE GREGOIRE of 
CONSPIRACY INC. had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a TV 
challenge which she won.  I thought CHRISTINE GREGOIRE showed great skill and promise 
when she beat CEPACOL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Well, the arena is no place for slow 
learners (and hopefully T.P.s) and KOFI ANNAN demonstrated that very violently on 
SNOWBALL's body.  Proving again that SOLVEN is not rated G, SMELLY of the KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS slew the warrior JUDGE ADVOCATE in a rather bloody bout.  Let's look for a 
bloodfeud.  On a sad note, SNOWBALL found an early retirement at the hands of KOFI 
ANNAN this week.  I wonder what JUST CHILLIN will be doing about it?  In the 'Oops, 
What Have I Done?' category, BLIZZARD was mashed by ZEBROE, who let BLIZZARD know 
that killing members of THE ZOO is a no-no.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
