Rown Mysterious 'Operation' Story Circulating SpinDizzy

 A Centaur from SpinDizzy has been reported to have undergone surgery this past week. No one is sure which one it was or what kind of surgery was preformed. I was certain that it wasn’t me that had it done, I checked and rechecked my body just in case someone did it without my knowledge. :-p

Reiter, local Centaur and SpinDizzy regular couldn’t be reached for comment but Rjia, local Centauress, and Reiter’s girlfriend as well as SpinDizzy regular (from time to time), has informed me that it wasn’t either of them. Word around SpinDizzy has it that Argon, local Centaur and SpinDizzy regular, had been the one. When I finally caught up with him he looked as though he was high on some sort of drug or pain killer. I asked him if he had been the Centaur that got the surgery done. His answer was “Ah sure, I’ll have another one!” and then he smiled placidly and wondered around aimlessly grabbing any munchies he could find.

A source from SED has made the comment that it had to be brain surgery that was done although he didn’t believe it would do any good, “He’s a horse, how could any kind of surgery help him become smarter?” Other speculation had Argon getting his tail bobbed or his tongue pierced. One person not wanting to be identified thought that the lovely and talented Mavra, local Centauress and SpinDizzy regular as well as Argon’s fiancée, may have finally gelded him! This report has been found to be false. (Don’t ask how I found out!)

I did find out that SED Ninjas have been impersonating doctors and may have abducted Argon to perform some sort of experiments on him. Their plot failed when Flutterz, Dread fae and SpinDizzy local accidentally dumped a jar of aphids on them when they bumped a bush she was sitting on. The Ninjas were covered with them and were itching so badly that they couldn’t complete their assignment. I had asked Flutterz what kind of aphids could cause that reaction on Ninjas. She told me that they could have been fleas, “sometimes I get them mixed up.”
Argon Weekly Survey
  Argon asked in this week's survey, "I'm doing a survey to be published in @Action News.  The question is, 'Who or what would you most like to see return to SpinDizzy?"
Clarisa says, "I don't really know anyone who has left."
Maxl hisses, "I'd like to see Moriarty come back. Again.  Except he seems to have exploded off the face of the earth."
Natasha says, "Topaz, maybe. Not likely at this point."
Lamar yaps, "I'd like to see Tuesday back"
Alicia says, "JavaFox"
Mouser hisses, "Moriarty, Argon. Morticon needs to be kept on his toes, after all..."
Gilead chirps, "Austin hasn't been out vandalizing cars and getting caned, has he?"
Mavra says, "Let's see... may I first say no 'unpleasant folk'? Twinks, basically.
Rown says, "Just Alpha."
Gina_Doberman says, "Hmm. Dont know. Have'nt noticed anything disappear since I arrived here!"
Smirk says, "I've seen everyone I'm familiar with.  Also I haven't noticed anything missing."
Flutterz would like to see more of Puzzle, Tamiki, and Wurragurr...just to name a few. And she'd like to see more activity on the story board....and we need more sparklie stuff around here. Yerp! =9
Reiter says, "That's a very good question. I hardly need to mention some friends of mine that left SD a while back... wouldn't mind having them return... Actually, other than that, I can't think of much."
Kendra yips, "I miss Moriarty."
PatchO'Black mews, "Hmmm...that's tough. I would say having lots of Jellicle cats around, but since they have never been a lot of Jellicle cats around..."
Rose says, "I'd like to see the tree go back to normal. :)"
Argon Maxl Named Associate Editor of @Action News
It is with pleasure and a gun pointed to my head that Maxl, local Badger, and regular contributor to this publication has been named Associate Editor of  @Action News.  He  has often offered me advice and suggestions usually prefaced with, "What. are you an idiot?.." Which have added greatly to the quality of @Action News. 
By Maxl, Associate Editor How To Get Priceless Objects
  Recently I discovered that I had not one, not two, but three or more priceless objects sitting on my bedroom floor precariously close to the heater, which would cause them to explode in a giant
firey mass should the temperature of my room ever drop below seventy degrees. Even more importantly, I got all of these priceless artifacts for NOTHING - and this makes me qualified to
dispense these handy hints on obtaining your own magical artifacts:

* Inherit them. If necessary, murder the people in your family who either bought them or also obtained them through murder.
* Trade worthless junk to stoners to obtain these magical artifacts.
* Convince somebody with more MAD SKILLZ than yourself to obtain these items. Then either murder them or trade them worthless junk for them.
* Make somebody with MAD SKILLZ incredibly curious about a perfectly ordinary object you have, so that they eventually conjecture it must be priceless. It might not be, but you still get that marvelous boost in status amongst poor college students.
* Watch Antiques Roadshow entirely too much for the sole purpose of learning how to hornswaggle your way into getting others to believe your perfectly ordinary objects are priceless.

With these handy hints, you can now be one of the elite. Good luck!

@Action News Info Guidelines and Procedure for Submitting Articles
  Submitting a story or artwork for @Action News is easy!  Just send it to newspaper@spindizzy.org, or qmail or page Argon or Maxl about it.

Most any type of story or article will be excepted.  Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of SpinDizzy.  The things reported don't have to have actually happened, (Any more than anything that happens here does.) but make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of interaction that we have.  These are pretty broad guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.
