When you've been friends with people for over two decades, they're bound to know your biggest fears. And when these friends all happen to be on a television show called Impractical Jokers, they're going captilize on it.
The Impractical Jokers - Q, Murr, Joe, and Sal.
In past punishments, Q has had to disagree with a panel of feminists...
Berate his (pretend) daughter at her little league game in front of a crowd of shocked and angry parents.
A couple of years ago, Q, along with Sal and Murr received tattoos on the 'Permanent Punishment' episode. A tattoo can be covered, but the memories and terror experienced in this punishment will haunt Q for years to come.
Over the years, The Jokers have had to up the ante, and each punishment has progressively gotten worse. Unlucky for Q, he was this week's loser and the punishment involved spiders - his biggest fear. But these were not just any spider, but tarantulas. Revealing his fear almost came back to bite him...literally.
The other Jokers might argue that they were trying to help Q get over his fear of spiders, but I don't think it can be considered facing your fears when you're literally chained down so you can't escape.
Just the thought of this makes my skin crawl. If you have arachnophobia, you may want to look away...
The other three jokers will have to watch their backs in Season 6 because Q is plotting his revenge.
