                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZENSU brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SEA OF FLOYD, since 
BOTCHED & BUNGLED took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see BAD BLAKE win a fight and gain 16 points, 
terribly.  Looks like ZENSU has some guts at least, TREE TRUNKS the Duelmaster was 
this turn's most-challenged warrior.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
GREAT WHITE FLOYD takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of 
these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  SEA 
OF FLOYD, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was ADVENTURE TIME 2.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZENSU's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ZENSU arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of ZENSU.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
