     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see NAPOLEON win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, NAPOLEON beat 
KING COREY and KING COREY lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke 
or broken, our Duelmaster J'KOROU challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice 
of life, VEASTIAN may be getting bland, as KRYSTAL MEYERS stays top dog in the city.  
I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know 
what's new, don't you, VEASTIAN?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  LUROCIAN ROYALTY, 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 POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE.  Ha ha ha ha!  J'KOROU was challenged more times this turn 
than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now look at 
this.  HAWK NELSON challenged down 49 against LUROCIAN ROYALTY's PRINCESS EMILY.  
What a weasel!  And sorry to say, HAWK NELSON bested PRINCESS EMILY, leaving a bad 
feeling with the crowd.  I think exploitive snob is the term I'm looking for.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for VEASTIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide 
Clemens
