                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZORPUNT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see KING BROWN SNAKE win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, KING BROWN SNAKE beat BILL POOLE and BILL POOLE lost 11 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZORPUNT may be getting bland, as 
STONEFISH stays top dog in the city.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale 
at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZORPUNT's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ZORPUNT, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
WATER DECK the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it 
looks like AUSSIE KILLERS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     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?   
     What does the ZORPUNT arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide
