                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Come on.  If you're going to drink milk, why bother with processed, watered down
milk?  Drink the real stuff.  Drink Whole Milk!  Clearly Whole Milk is the best, why
else would Assur run this team almost solely for me, mostly ignoring all other types
of Milk?
     That 1% version only gets to fight when the fighting is free.  That should show
exactly how much Assur is willing to invest in that.  You won't see any other version
fighting ever.

Drink your Milk!  Milk is Good!  Drink Whole Milk!

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DRAGONHEAD brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, MIDDLE WAY 9, since 
ARTIC FURY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  ARTIC FURY 
turned their 4-1-3 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, ORC EMPIRE, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see OXFORD win a fight and gain 18 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CONVICTED ASSASSIN beat ROMOR SAITH and ROMOR SAITH lost 19 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DRAGONHEAD 
may be getting bland, as WHOLE stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good 
mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
DRAGONHEAD?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     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?   
     There's got to be a better place in DRAGONHEAD to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
