                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well!  And a "Ho!" to you, King Brown Snake, too bad you were off your form
today, eh?  At least, too bad for YOU.  I liked it.

                                     Bubba Jones

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZORPUNT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, KRILL CAVALRY 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by MONEY PIT!  Way to go 
MONEY PIT!  MVP award for IRMEAN?  MONEY PIT's proud of him after beating BOX 
JELLYFISH and getting 17 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  BOX JELLYFISH's match 
with IRMEAN cost him a loss of 15 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think BUBBA JONES should let KUNG-FU MASTER be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of KRILL CAVALRY must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why MONEY PIT's 
been avoiding KRILL CAVALRY so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, 
is BILL POOLE popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ZORPUNT!  He's 
got a 18-10-1, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Inny Meanie -- Bad match for you, but that's the way the cookie cracks.  Could be the
other way around next time. -- Bill Poole the Philosophical
P.S.  The way you sucked up those skills is amazing.  Must be a golem thing, huh?

Ultimate Sin -- What do you define as the "ultimate" sin, exactly?  Something fun, I
hope?  But probably not, as the really nasty, deep-running sins are all mean-spirited
things.  Oh, well. -- Tiralea Flete
P.S.  Besides, you're a golem.  Do you even have free will to decide whether or not
to sin?  Because if you don't have free will, it might be nasty, but I don't see how
it can be true sin.  You have to have a choice.

It's iniquitous what the Userous Merchant wants to charge me for those skills!  It
isn't as if I'd ASKED him for the skills.  He FORCED them on me.  He did, really! --
Mikela Poole

What is this, Standbys Victorious Day?  I protest!  I was doing it right, I WAS, and
the Mordant Deserter (wow, was my face red!) just up and DEFEATED me and made
insulting comments.  Gods, I hate that. -- Teri Lark

Ed. -- That was my thought, since in fact there aren't any active mammals.  But does
this team have a Human on it?  Not so's you'd notice! -- Teri Lark

     Maybe a good thing.  Humans tend to be pretty sneaky. -- Ed.

Gilbo Shortaxe -- But I like "short" jokes.  Sue me. -- Bubba Jones
