                                      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 ERRATA, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the BARHOPPERS 
stable.  It looks like the guys(?) at THE MIDDLE WAY 4 had a good week as they went 
4-1-0 to put them in 2nd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for 
DOBERUM HANNIS, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing BARTHOMAS like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  CORAL EDEN was defeated by IRON MAIDEN and drops 7 points.  Going for the 
gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was BARHOPPERS' WHITE SPIDER, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by GIGLIE.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed 
protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that MADTOWN was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of MADTOWN's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be 
funny, but catch ERRATA's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from MADTOWN.  And who is this THUMBSCREW you ask, with 37 points and a 6-3-0 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, 
K KLONK went after CROWN ROYAL, who was higher by 24 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, K KLONK was subdued by CROWN ROYAL.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Tequilla Gorilla -- You say drinking that actually helps you fight?  Maybe I should
try it.  What's it made of? -- Doberum Hannis

Vince -- You do know how to show a girl a good time!  I love those slow dances.
Maybe we should do it again some time. -- Erhlie Fay

Joe Kerr -- Well... yeah, I thought it was kinda funny. -- X. Rolph Tupp
P.S.  You need to get a little blood into your alcohol stream, though.  It made me
drunk without filling me up.  I hate it when that happens.

Thumbscrew -- Ah... it's more secure than a thumbtack?  Or even a thumbnail?  But
what about a thumbolt? -- Trellin Xiss

Barthomas -- Wow, you really clubbed me over the head with that canoe!  Ouch. --

Oh, no!  The Electric Jello has been taken out of the stores, off the shelves,
