It's in everything these days, supposed to be really healthy. It threw me, because everything else was three-something and I wasn't expecting a something-three.

Malbaby, - Larry, Moe, and Curly weren't the only ones who played in the Three Stooges films. There were only three at a time, and Moe and Larry were always part of the threesome, but the third character changed. Moe's brother Shemp was in the group first, then he left and was replaced by their brother Curly, who left due to illness and Shemp came back. He died and Joe Palma took his place, then was replaced by Joe Besser. Besser was later replaced with Joe DeRita who was called "Curly Joe".

Actually, "omega-3" describes a *structure* of a fatty acid -- an omega-3 fatty acid is one that has a double bond three carbon atoms from the aliphatic end of the chain. It is not the name of a fatty acid, as the question seems to imply. I'm not sure if there is a single fatty acid that is "everyone's" favorite -- α-Linolenic acid is one possible answer because it's omega-3 and essential for human health, but there will always be some joker who will tell you that his favorite fatty acid is caproic acid because it's smelly.

Saw the "3 no evils" on an unforgettable trip to Japan from London over 40 years ago - looking at a photo print inside our house as I type this.

Once again, the Bible does not say that there were three wisemen. An unknown number of magi brought three types of gifts: gold, myrrh, and frankincense.

Agree it is not specifically spelled out in the Bible, but who said it was? In popular culture they are always depicted as three kings, three wise men, three Magi, whatever you want to call them. I've never seen a nativity scene or Christmas card which showed any other number.

There were definitely three kings. I've seen it in a documentary called Life of Brian.

I thought that everyone's favorite fatty acids was triglycerides as they have three fatty acids to them.

Technically, the only ghost to visit Scrooge on Christmas Eve was old Jacob Marley, who tells him of the other ghosts and to "Expect the first to-morrow, when the bell tolls One," which, of course, would be Christmas Day. It's a great quiz.

Seems super nitpicky. I don't feel like it's Christmas day until at least 8 AM, kids be damned.

Irritatingly inconsistent how some answers require plural -s and others don't, especially if playing on a phone, if you don't notice the initial S left over, so your next answer is wrong

The Bible never actually mentions that there are three wise men, just that there are three gifts. There could have been hundreds of magi, all bringing the same three gifts
