Alibi Trivia Challenge

Hey, egghead, have we got a treat for you. If you can complete these 20 questions correctly and turn them in sooner than anyone else along with a completed angry monkey puzzle (see facing page), you will be rewarded with a jaw-dropping jackpot of fabulous prizes, including a $15 gift certificate to Bookworks, a "mystery" gift certificate to Mecca Records, a whopping $100 gift certificate to the District, a box of Belgian chocolates from Wild Oats, an Alibi T-shirt, and last but certainly not least, an official Alibi flyswatter that will make you the envy of all your fellow eggheads.

Get crackin', smarty pants. By the time you're done with this brain test, the inside of your head might be scrambled and fried, but you'll need that flyswatter to beat back all your admirers. Entries should be e-mailed to cassyle@alibi.com or snailed to Alibi Trivia Challenge, Weekly Alibi, 2118 Central SE, #151, Albuquerque, N.M. 87106.
