Time for a new entry: Tellin' off President Obama!
Allow us to once again congratulate last week's news quiz winner Jaclyn Abergas -- and remind her that the large, white tiger stuffed animal she earned is still waiting for her. Seriously, he's crowding me out of my own desk here.

This weeks' winners will have three prizes to choose from: A black Corona beanie hat; a pair of SF Weekly portable speakers for your computer or iPod that "sound better than you'd think" according to our sources; and The Girl in Alfred Hitchcock's Shower, the latest book by Zodiac author Robert Graysmith. Good luck! First one to send a flawless response to us here is the winner.
