                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ERINIKA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  PALINDROMES like 
really fought hard to move up to 8th from 11th.  Way to go!  Cut this out and put it 
in your scrapbooks, WORLDWIDE GORE!  'Cause they got 4-0-0 and moved up to 2nd!  MVP 
award for PUJOLS?  GASHOUSE GANG's proud of him after beating RAEMOND PURR and 
getting 19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  RAEMOND PURR's match with PUJOLS 
cost him a loss of 16 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  EDMONDS 
stopped KUNG-FU MASTER 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?  The warriors of DUDS must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why THE BULLS' been avoiding DUDS so much?  Or 
is it just that they're too scared?  Can MIDDLE WAY 18's RAEMOND PURR be more popular 
than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  Ooh!  Did WONTON 
NOT NOW really know what he was doing when he challenged ROLEN?  A 13-7-0 speaks 
volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't know what it means.) Do you think WONTON NOT 
NOW knew something before he challenged ROLEN?  He got a win and 35 points.  What 
will the guy do next?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Hmmm, Assur, I know you!  Who else in this world could take a 9-0 Duelmaster piker,
and lose to a weak NPC for a 9-1 graduation?  Who else, I say?  I am watching you
closely.  Good luck on that roll up I gave you; I truly hope it is nice.  (Am
thinking 10-10-10-10-10-10-10 would best fit your team.) -- Abba Cuss, retired

Well, I see that Carpenter did, indeed, survive the Dark Arena.  Good for him!. --
Jorja

Cliff Hanger -- Once, maybe.  Not twice. -- Ursula Zaroff

New Guinea Pig -- Pinta's not close kin of mine, more of a distant cousin. -- Nina
Marie

We salute the participants in the mail-in tourney, with a special nod for Mud Puppy,
tourney victor. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

New Guinea Pig -- Raised for food, weren't they?  I'm hungry.... -- Raemond Purr

Belgian Waffle -- And *I* am hungry, and you look a lot better than stewed guinea
pig. -- Ursula Zaroff

Stink -- Phew! -- Willa Vervet

Gross -- You are. -- Yildor Zane

Ah, thieves.  I like fighting thieves. -- Nina Marie

Cliff Hanger -- This time, there was a good conclusion. -- Wonton Not Now
