I’m soooooo I.E!

Ok so I’ve lived here in the I.E. since Stu was in Jr. High soooo, I knowa lotta ’bout this place. Take this-my first I.E.I.Q. test to see if you can beat my almost freakish intellectual brilliance when it comes to the home-town. Oh yeah. My score was 100%. Get ‘em all right and report back to me on KCAL Rocks this Saturday. Just give me a ring and say,

“I’M sooooo I.E!!”
