                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  DAL SHANG needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
GRIZOLPOP?  SAND DANCERS' proud of him after beating DEJA DUCK and getting 22 points. 
Talk about yer big time losers!  DEJA DUCK got smashed by GRIZOLPOP, and lost 18 
points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  MERRO DOSH 
knows this.  He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  ROPE MAN stopped MERRO DOSH dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really 
being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Rope Man -- Ah, it isn't like there's much of anyone else, is it?  And, though I say
it myself, I'm an excellent teacher. -- Merro Dosh

Doomed Duck -- Well, if I can sneak up while you're sitting, you are.  I never was
much good at the "duck on the wing" business. -- Melost the Gray

Flightless Duck -- Yet again, a demonstration of why functional wings are no big
deal.  Damn.  And my elephants have started flapping their ears.  Not the way I
wanted to go. -- Ghost of Pink Elephant

Ah, a win over a standby.  Excellent. -- Sorrelishe

Destiny Duck -- You're just too big.  I can't even think about all of you at once.
Ah...oh.  I guess I killed you.  Sorry about that.  And you're even too big for the
roasting pan. -- Grizolpop

A salute to all who participated in the tourney. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
