                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  CLIFFHOME needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
VANILLA?  U.A.K.'s proud of him after beating BENT FENDER and getting 18 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  REDD CORVAIT got smashed by RUNNA DAMILL, and lost 5 
points!  Like JINDA-BAN's CONNIE PAKKIT is sweating since she got challenged by 
Duelmaster POULAN!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  POULAN stopped CONNIE 
PAKKIT dead in hers tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said CLIFFHOME's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Choking Ogre?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  OLD SCHOOL was the most avoided team.  Is a 68-38-2 
record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why BOY O'S' been avoiding 
OLD SCHOOL so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is RUMAKI popular, 
or what?  She was challenged the most in all of CLIFFHOME!  She's got a 7-2-0, is 
that good?  I'm not so sure AVERAGE JOE knew all the facts when he challenged RUMAKI 
of FREAKISH.  I saw AVERAGE JOE stumbling and dribbling at The Choking Ogre last 
week...  What did AVERAGE JOE expect, anyway!  Of course RUMAKI won.  Next time stick 
to people you have a chance against, dummy!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  CLIFFHOME is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Poulan -- I could've gone for months, perfectly happy, or as near perfectly happy as
a gladiator is likely to be, without that loss. -- Connie Pakkit
P.S.  If this kind of thing is what you get for a "welcome back," maybe we should go
away for a while and then return.

Runna Damill -- They all say that.  I don't like it.  I want to be brilliant, and if
I succumb to the likes of you, where does that leave me? -- Redd Corvait

Average Joe -- I dunno who was doing your math, but--  Oh.  My manager says I should
stop complaining, and the rest of my teammates also, because at least we don't have
to do a column, and we should be glad of that because we complain when we do have to.
But if we can't complain, what is there to say? -- Bent Fender
P.S.  I suppose we could take up cooking, like those weirdoes in Caleam, but can you
honestly picture any of us cooking something worth tossing to the hogs?

Vanilla -- A favorite flavor, even if it is "common."  What's wrong with liking
something lots of people like, eh?  They might know what they're doing when they say
it's good. -- Kartikaya

Waldo -- What?  My first time out, and I get matched with a golem?  I demand a
recount!  I demand a MAN, dammit. -- Wheelie June

Poulan -- Well, of course.  I have a master's degree in education. -- Connie Pakkit
