                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in RODEKI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Uncool, WIND STORM.  I mean 
0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  CLOWNING AROUND like really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 5th.  Way 
to go!  MVP award for FOUR OF SPADES?  COLOR ME SUAVE's proud of him after beating 
ROCKJAW and getting 11 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ROCKJAW got smashed 
by FOUR OF SPADES, and lost 14 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  RED 
SKELTON stopped KANGAROO LIFEBOAT dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being 
a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  WHAT A TEAM! was the most avoided team.  Is a 9-2-0 record really 
that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are COLOR ME SUAVE?  WHAT A TEAM!, an easy 
team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can DELVERS' 
HANDSOME DOES be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?  FRANKENBUTT is being unfair.  He's challenged down 28 against LA 
CHISELLE.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) I was 
sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in RODEKI.  FRANKENBUTT got 4 points after 
beating LA CHISELLE, 28 points below him.   
     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?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Red Skelton -- It would have been more courteous to let me win my last fight here,
but then...you're a clown.  And I guess it's better you sit on the throne with a win.
-- The Mole

Frankenbutt -- You have, without question, the ugliest butt in Rodeki, and this is
just from glancing at you (more is repugnant) in your armor. -- La Chiselle

Four of Spades -- I agree with Fredi.  Where's the sauvity in that?  Enlighten us. --
Handsome Does

Jockstrap Jones -- You sink to new depths of suavitude, guy. -- Fredibar

Rock -- Yeah, well, this is classic, right? -- Rockjaw
P.S.  Now you can call yourself gravel.

Red -- Yep, us moles are a tough audience. -- THE Mole

Torba Val -- I've heard about the Dirty Sock all my life.  I've SEEN the Dirty Sock.
I want no part of it.  Stuff it in your...sock. -- The Mole

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.
