Every point counts.
The Stooges — otherwise known as The Most Interesting Trivia Team in the World — led by just one stinking point after the first three rounds and visual round were all tallied up.
The valiant Jolly Jokers tried hard on Round 4, but were left in the dust when The Stooges earned a trivia hog by knowing Doctor and the Medics covered “Spirit in the Sky.”
When the dust settled, only the final scores remained:
1. 4,218 — Solemn Stooges
2. 3,717 — Jolly Jokers
3. 3,205 — Steel Curtain
4. 2,618 — Bubba Ho Tep
5. 2,410 — The Browncoats
6. 2,324 — Michelle, Farewell! These are Words that Go Together Well!
7. 2,304 — Rinke Noonan
8. 2,055 — Sting Rays
9. 1,317 — Google Help Us

Super Ninja Second Chance Challenge
As luck would have it, our winners — Solemn Stooges — drew the Jolly Jokers to play in the Super Ninja. We asked whose autograph is on the baseball bat Wendy Torrance uses to beat her husband Jack in 1980’s horror classic “The Shining.”
The Jokers’ answer: Mickey Mantle
It was Carl Yastrzemski. (The Shining’s author Stephen King is a huge Red Sox fan.)
