                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
FRATSFA.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  ISN'T IT OBVIOUS now 
holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  MANDOR was beat by LACERATED TONGUE and drops 14 
points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was OTTO'S 
PARTS' RUNNY NOSE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by BUSHSUCKSTOADIE.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad ISN'T IT OBVIOUS?  Big bad ISN'T IT OBVIOUS.  Big bad ISN'T IT OBVIOUS.  
FRATSFA's afraid of the big bad ISN'T IT OBVIOUS.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys 
like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause OTTO'S PARTS beats feet every 
time ISN'T IT OBVIOUS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, BROKEN HEART would be president.  Although it may be a contest 
it doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, SWAYVIL went 
after SLAYINGDEISFUN, who was higher by 18 points.  Well, when the dust settled, 
SWAYVIL was put to death by SLAYINGDEISFUN.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  There's got to be more reason for the sending of GREEN MAN 
to the Dark Arena than his record (2-1-0).  Anybody got any ideas FOREST WARD?  For 
those of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed SWAYVIL by the ear and took him 
away to a place where he won't need a coat.  Yesterday I talked to the WEATHER's 
manager and BUSHSUCKSTOADIE, slayer of SNOW.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think I 
can'.  BUSHSUCKSTOADIE:  'I already did'.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the FRATSFA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
