                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JHANS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, PORTAL, since AARDVARK 
HAMMERZ took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps up, 
WARRIOR'S, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 8 in the 
rankings?  BABES turned their 2-0-0 turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this 
turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 
4-1-1 is nice, but don't get cocky, AARDVARK HAMMERZ, the Fates teach humility, and 
the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see KUDOS KLK HAMMER 
win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, WIND beat HARPO and HARPO lost 8 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  DONNA THE HUNTRESS challenged JHANS' Duelmaster 
for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as DONNA THE 
HUNTRESS takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  
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, JHANS?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  ABSTRACT 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 THE FALLEN.  Ha ha ha ha!  PALADIN was challenged more 
times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  
Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, LADY TEASE HAMMER challenged up 31 
to take on NASH of PORTAL.  My sides still hurt from laughing about NASH losing and 
giving LADY TEASE HAMMER 21 points of recognition.  Ha ha ha ha!!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JHANS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  BANANA GORILLA, a glorious 
11-27-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad SCARRY TEAM.  And what a stunning 
loss we have here, boys and girls, DIVIT of ERRATA has added the final loss to his 
4-7-0.  Tee hee!  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  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

JGW -- He doesn't just duck feuds...he...well...you know. -- Baphomet

Kid Kizzle -- I know...it disgusts you to have to play with folks like me, and you
hate us to the nth degree...yadda...yada...yada.  What?  Can't stand straight folks,
right? -- Baphomet

Azrael -- Yep, back at it again.  Ain't I a hoot?! -- Baphomet, TCB, Illuminati War
Beast, mgr. Chop's Pride

Az -- Bro...looks like DOOMCorps has left town.  I don't think any of 'em ran last
turn.

Hammer -- Would have written but...like the absent-minded old fogie I am, I misplaced
your address.  If you'll be so kind as to send it again, I'd appreciate it. --
Baphomet

Papa Bear -- I don't think we've been formally introduced.  I'm the guy everyone
hates...who gets his giggles out of riding his enemies into the dirt...and generally
has a good time.  Actually, I think my only enemy here is Kid Fizzle, and who cares
about that ninny anyway? -- Baphomet

TDH -- How ya doing?  Haven't heard a peep in a month of Sundays! -- Baphomet

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
