Toddy Smith stopped by the Riverfront Times office today to collect her prizes for winning the 2009 Unreal News Challenge.

As we revealed last week, Smith correctly answered 95 of 100 questions earning her a solid "A" and narrowly beating out the next highest scorer at 94.

Smith, 25, tells Daily RFT that she had a couple days to commit to taking the quiz -- allowing her to research each question thoroughly.

"I have a lot of downtime at work," admits the Enterprise Rent-A-Car associate. "Things like this help pass the time." (Smith sounds like just the type of reader we're looking to distract with this here blog!)

As winner of the quiz, Smith took home a collection of leftover swag, including: 

  • a rubber chicken
  • football Cardinals helmet
  • praying hands
  • monkey mask
  • golf tees
  • crystal pitcher
  • toy bulldozer
  • "Get Your Rear In Gear" colonoscopy screening T-shirt
