                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This time, I EARNED the title.  Defeated Turkey Leg Tango, a timely match.  I
like it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for CLIFFHOME.  MVP award for SPIKE?  ZOMBIE 
SQUAD's proud of it after beating THE COWS AFOOT and getting 23 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  THE COWS AFOOT got smashed by SPIKE, and lost 15 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  LUM BUSBY stopped KUNG-FU MASTER dead in his 
tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Ribeye Rhomba -- There is something really wrong with this picture, usually the lion
eats the meat not the other way around. -- Lion's Mane

Morindel Salm -- And I'd have gotten away with it too if it weren't for you meddling
kids. -- Baskerville Pig

Spike -- I'm sorry for that "Give it up now, wimp, before I rip your face off!"
comment I made during the fight.  I didn't notice you were a Zombie and only meant it
as hyperbole, not thinking it was going to be so easy to do. -- My Deer Watson

Sirloin Salsa -- No wonder I lost, who ever heard of Rabbit with Salsa? -- Uncut Hare

Baskerville Pig -- Ah, bacon!  VERY good.  I LIKE bacon. -- Morngel Salm
P.S.  Of course, Jorja will probably take one whiff and start throwing up again.
Having a manager who is sick is not fun.

The Cows Afoot -- That would be fine, if you weren't on MY foot.  Ouch. -- Sauvarn
Maur

Faith -- You don't LOOK like a zombie. -- Kevsilessa Kiro
