                             Notes from the arena champ.

What can I say?  Long Island can take me to the cleaners every day and I'll submit 
happily to his pure scumminess.  But when he doesn't show up?  I'm really not that 
bad!  Part of my problem is that I truly am trying to reform myself.  Dueling and not 
trying to hurt people is not a good combination.  But I'm told that is key to 
overcoming addiction.

                                          -- Those I Hurt

                                      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 DEEP WATERS win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HUMAN PRETZEL 
beat STONE TEMPLE PILOT and STONE TEMPLE PILOT lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Looks like ILLIS has some guts at least, THOSE I HURT the Duelmaster was this 
turn's most-challenged warrior.  LONG ISLAND challenged ILLIS' Duelmaster for a shot 
at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, ILLIS may be getting bland, as 
THOSE I HURT stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, 
how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
BASHAHOLICS ANON, 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 it looks like CHAPEL ROCK 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, IRISH FLAG challenged up 36 
to take on FEARLESS INVENTORY of BASHAHOLICS ANON.  And The Warty Toad has banned 
FEARLESS INVENTORY from service until next turn for losing to IRISH FLAG and giving 
it 30 points in the process!  Ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ILLIS' 
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 ILLIS to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this 
winter-- Snide Clemens
