                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ILLIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BENISATO win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JOHN WAYNE beat 
COCO NUTTAL and COCO NUTTAL lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ILLIS may be getting bland, as INUYASHA stays top dog 
in the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From ILLIS' trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the ILLIS 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 ILLIS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
