JOE’S FUN CLUB ESTABLISHED!

Joe, the person who murdered Bob, has become the leader of what is now Joe’s Fun Club. He has made no secret of his evil intentions.                                                 “I plan to eat ten percent of everyone’s food. I also want ten percent of everyone’s land. And every time they make money, they have to give me ten percent. Oh yes! I know what I’ll do with the money! Yes I do! I’ll use it up myself! HAHAHA!”

GROINLAND CUTLERY CORP. UNDERPERFORMING

The once-wildly-popular Groinland Cutlery Corporation has made slowl business recently. Although they used to design many new knifes every week, the main knife creater has been sick, so he has not invented any more knives. Sales have lagged, because people only buy products from the G.C.C when they are new.

“Eww! After about a week, I don’t want their gross knives any more. But when they release new ones and all of my friends make a huge line at the store, I NEED to have one!” -Anonymous stranger

ANOTHER MURDERBALL GAME PLAYED!

In the South Republic Prison, a team of Groiners (the Hurters) and Republicans (the Manglers) fought each other in a brutally disgusting game of Murderball. Although the Hurters did a good job of hitting the Mangler’s throwers at first, they eventually slowed down, giving the Manglers the advantage. It was a suspenseful and entertaining game, though.

It is widely known that the Hurters do poorly because of their bad teamwork. However, some people have suggested that another reason why the Hurters fail is because they have a less aggressive name.

Score: 14 Manglers 10 Hurters

CURRENT TRADE PRICES & INFORMATION: (by Trade-Talker)

Internationally, Groinland is planning to plant roses in their newly-acquired plot of land. (located on territory that used to belong to the Dictatorship of Goddanged) Since the place that used to be Bob’s Fun Club is such a mess, the economy there is doing horrible. I do not really count the place that used to be Bob’s Fun Club as a real country, though. It seems more like a joke to me.

Here in the South Republic, the economy has been going at a tolerable pace, although it has seen better days in the last few months.
The weather earlier last week was nice enough to permit a large amount of tourists to tour the Republic. Tour guides have actually started to pop up,
and their high prices for tours have boosted the economy significantly.
Due to the recent deluge of snow, (even though it’s spring) a large volume of snow has been sold. That involved unburying the snow-machines,
because it was assumed the last snow of the season had already occurred.

Obituaries
Someone named George Walker died from getting a heart attack while running. He has no friends, so he will not be buried. Of course, if someone
feels like digging the hole and throwing him in, they are welcome to. (Just remember to cover him back up when you’re done.)

SOUTH REPUBLIC ANNEXES GODDANGED TERRITORY!

The South Republic legally took a lot of land from what used to be the Dictatorship of Goddanged recently. It amounts to 3 square miles. (meaning the S.R is now 175% of the size it used to be.) The land is far west, compared to the rest of the South Republic. Most of it will be used for farming. The rest may be used for building houses or stores.

The South Republic also gave some of the land to Groinland. In their appreciation, Groinland gave the Republic 10 litres of water and 2 guns.  That means that Groinland now has almost twice the land they used to. It sounds like a great opportunity for the Groiners!

MORE GROINISH KNIVES UNVEILED

Since the owner of the G.C. Corporation started selling their newest batch of knives, they have been extremely successful. We predicted there would be a buying rampage, but this was beyond our expectations! People literally camped out to get their choice of the best knife. Catalogs were sold on the black market for up to $5, since you need a catalog to order a knife. Two people even died in the buying rampage! However, it has been good for Groinland’s economy.

4 DIE IN FIRST MURDERBALL MATCH EVER- MANGLERS WIN!

In the first ever official game of Murderball ever, the Manglers beat the Hurters to a gruesome pulp. The game took place in the cafeteria of the Groinland Prison. The end score was 5 for the Manglers, and 2 for the Hurters. 3 players were murdered. At this rate, it won’t be too long before there are not enough players to play! Then, more teams will have to be made. Most of the spectators were rooting for the Manglers, because they had a “Goddamned name!” or a “Amazing amount of murdering power!” or even “Raw brutality!” (quotes from spectators.)

Obituaries:

Luckily, only one person has died this week. Everyone knew he would die, anyways.

Mr. Poop Face died of cancer a few days ago. His funeral will be held at the Christianish Church in the South republic. He will be buried next to his dad’s final resting place.

Letters:

“It’s a depressing thing that someone had to invent Murdeball. That game sucks! Who wants a star player to be killed in his first month of playing? That’s the sort of thing that happens in Murderball.”                   –Bob Billman

“Now that I’m thinkin’ about it, why did the Hurters choose such a god-danged wimpy name? That’s why the Manglers are better- they have a more hurtful name! They do! This mouth don’t lie! Nope!”

-Grointalker

I think we should ban the horrible “sport” of Murderball. It’s little more than legalized murder for prison inmates! I don’t believe we should have it. The only way to stop it, though, would be to tell Groinland that THEY have to ban that, and I doubt that will happen.” –Prof. Colie

“In times of war, prepare for times to cut food into pieces. LOL.”

–Harvey Hank

“Oh yes! It’s such greatness! Oh yes! We’re do-inge so well!”

Official “Murderball” rules:

This is a disturbing “sport” invented by Groinland. Too bad someone had to invent it.

Murderball Rules of Officialness:

Index: 1. Players 2. Roles  3. Rules 4. Special rules

1. Players

Each team in Murderball will have at least 5 players and 2 reserves. More reserves are recommended because players will often die. Each team must have three fielders, a Thrower, and a Hitter.

There is also at least 1 Ref on the field at a time.

2. Roles

Fielders will try to catch the Thrower when the Hitter hits him and sends him flying. If they succeed, no points are given in that round.

Throwers run towards the Hitter. They also try to take the bat from the Hitter. If they succeed and beat on the Hitter, the Thrower’s team gets a point. Beat-downs cannot last more than 5 seconds, or the point will be nullified.

Hitters try to hit Throwers. If they succeed, they get a point. (unless the Thrower is caught by Fielders)

3. Other Rules

The first team to get 5 points wins the game.

There will be no fighting except that involving the Thrower and Hitter.

If a Hitter murders a Thrower or knocks him unconscious, and yells “Murderball!” he gets 2 points. If a Thrower disarms a Hitter and murders him with the Hitter’s bat, (also shouting Murderball!) the Throwers team gets 2 points.

If a member of a team runs away from the diamond, their team loses a point.

If a player hits a Ref, they will be thrown out of the league.

If a Ref hits a player, they will be yelled at.

If a player hits a Fielder, there will no penalty and no benefit. However, the other Fielders are allowed to beat up the person hitting them. (which is an exception of the “no fighting” rule)

4. Equipment

Hitter: The hitter uses a special bat made for shooting people into the sky. It is usually made of titanium. The bat cannot weigh more than one pound.

Thrower: The thrower wears plastic and sponge armor so he doesn’t get injured every time he gets hit.

Fielders: Fielders wear regular clothes, but are required to dress at least partly like bodybuilders.

5. Timing

Each game consists of 2 halves. Each half consists of 5 plays. So, the total game consists of 10 plays.

6. League structure and Prizes

Teams will play each other is an elimination-style way. After every game, they are allowed to change one player. Once there are only two teams left, they will face off in the Murderbowl. The team that wins the Murderbowl gets a trophy.

(Please do not play this game. It is for entertainment only!)
