                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MURSKA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, PHILANTHROPISTS 3, since 
FLIPPERS ARCADE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see NI win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, BUMP 'N' JUMP beat KAI and KAI lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as MORPETH takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From MURSKA's trash 
dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  BUSY, BUSYTOWN was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was PHILANTHROPISTS 3.  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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in MURSKA to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens
