                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, NIATOLI ISLAND?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, SEA DOGS, since THE 
SEWING CIRCLE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see MULCHER win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly. 
Tsk, tsk, MULCHER beat ELT and ELT lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, NIATOLI ISLAND may be getting bland, as HULL SCRUBBER 
stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling 
you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, NIATOLI ISLAND?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  NIATOLI 
ISLAND, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  TOOL SHED the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was HALLOWIENERS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     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?   
     There's got to be a better place in NIATOLI ISLAND to get a drink than The Don't 
Drop Inn!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of NIATOLI ISLAND.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, 
you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
