                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in JHANS. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say good-bye to 
ENGINES 'O' DEATH, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SEA DOGS 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for PUSS N BOOTS, who flew up 15 points in the 
rankings after mashing PEG LEG like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  PEG LEG was bested by PUSS N 
BOOTS and drops 11 points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts 
wash yer clothes.  IRON MAN did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  It's a 
proud day for the VOW TO DESTROY stable, as their warrior, BLOOD THIRSTER, ascended 
the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHANS arena.  Did you 
hear that ENGINES 'O' DEATH was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of ENGINES 'O' DEATH's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of 
you who like math, try this one:  ENGINES 'O' DEATH + Weapons That go Boom = ERRATA + 
Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
