                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARADI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see CATIPILLAR win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, AN 
AVERAGE JOE beat BALKO DUNN and BALKO DUNN lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, and HORNET has 
made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With HORNET clearing the throne, BUGS, SLUGS & 
THUGS of CATIPILLAR takes a proud seat as ARADI's new Duelmaster, by virtue of 
recognition points.  The Blind Cyclops Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ARADI's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARADI's 
morgue.  More variety.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, JILL 
RUSTLE of RED DOG GANG has added the final loss to hers 9-7-0.  Tee hee!  Honor is 
like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ARADI to get a drink than The Blind Cyclops 
Inn!  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

I don't understand this "narrow" stuff.  The Khalhums Dwarf "narrowly" defeated me.
He didn't seem narrow to ME.  In fact, he was everywhere!  Worse than a cat. -- Jill
Rustle

Potato Bug -- You taste really bad.  I bit you, because that was my job, but then I
spit you out again.  And bit you again, and so on. -- Chiquita Chiwawa

Hoffa -- Great slippers!  And the wallet I chewed on was good, too. -- Slippers

I would never trust someone with shifty eyes like that.  Besides, it makes my head
ache just watching him. -- Kotter

Chopped Rabbit -- That was humiliating. -- Fenwrist

Quick, while she isn't looking!

Catipillar -- I don't believe you did that.  It must have been someone else who was
bested. -- Chilman... oh, I guess I am someone "Else"

That Jaywalker will maybe cross at the crosswalk next time. -- Elin Gissors

These Cult Members are useless types, aren't they? -- Balko Dunn
