On tonight’s special episode of “Impractical Jokers,” the tribute to boys who never grow up, Tru-TV states a loud and clear warning that the following program contains scenes of graphic stupidity among four lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other. Joe Gatto, Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn and James “Murr” Murray were all born without filters and would do just about anything to win a challenge, where they went to the Lone Star State on this episode titled “Bigger in Texas.” Hope they remember people carry guns down there, before they prank the wrong person! Take a peek here.
At Texas Ranch Life in Chappel Hill, a place where people come to learn real ranching skills, the guys are partnering up to teach city slickers the ropes. Murr & Q will be up against Joe & Sal, and although the only ranch these guys know is ranch dressing, they will act as the teachers. The team that gets the most votes from their group will be the winners, in the challenge called Dude, Where’s My Ranch?
As Murr & Q got a volunteer, Murr takes ten steps back and attempts to lasso the pretty woman. Having never held a lasso in his life, he doesn’t even come close. Then on to the bullwhip, where they are barely amusing the class consisting of adults of all ages. The orders they are given by the other team make them look more childish than professional cowhands. Then a horse is brought in for them to teach the group how to saddle him. But when Murr’s hat blows off, it gives the group more to laugh at as he must go chase after it, then used an air pistol to shoot it. When Q puts the saddle on the horse, it is backwards, which gives another laugh to the group. Then when asked by a show of hands how many learned something of value; they received no hands at all. Leaving the next group with what could possibly be an easy task; or not.
For Joe & Sal, their group did not seem to have a sense of humor as these buffoons went through their antics falling down and making fools of themselves. As Joe was demonstrating the bullwhip, he hit himself with it and went down in pain as Sal laughed his ass off and nobody else cracked a smile. Believe it or not, these two rodeo clowns got two votes; winning this challenge.
For the second challenge, the guys were working at Allens Boots as salesmen, but they must say and do what the other guys tell them. Joe was first and had to spill his guts to a guy about how he came to be in the witness protection program. Murr was next, and helped a young couple find the right hat. As he stacked hat after hat on top of the young woman’s head, they got a good laugh at his actions. Next was a young mother holding a small child who needed boots. He told her he was in a rap group called cowboys with a Z. Then he had to make up a rap on the spot for her, but after the first line, he was down for the count. Sal had to measure everything on a guy’s body who was just looking for a belt. As this poor guy stood and let Sal make all these outrageous measurements, he finally walked away. Then he had to give the next person who walked in the door a big Texas welcome; he had to say Howdy ass hole. As he did what he was told, the man said that he heard him and needed to tell him to go f himself. When it was Q’s turn, he had to push boots from one side of the aisle to a man on the other side. Then he had to ask a young woman if he looked familiar to her; when she said she was never there before, he told her he was a stripper at a bar and thought she bought a lap dance from him. Then he had to give her a demonstration of his moves, but he did not lose this one.
For their last challenge, they had to wear sunglasses that were blacked out inside and walk and move as they were directed. With two strikes against Murr already, he sure was hoping someone else would lose. Murr walked right into the ring of the mechanical bull and had to get on, then he took off the glasses and freaked out. Then he had to walk behind an elderly couple and ask if they clearly remembered the Alamo? Q had so much faith that Murr would not say it, that he took a loss on the whole episode when Murr did finally say the phrase. Q, stated that he was an idiot, and nobody there or watching would disagree.
For the punishment, he was at Tejas Rodeo and had to demonstrate his skills and rope a calf and proclaim to all bystanders that he was the rodeo king of the world from New York City. However, he had no idea; it was he who would be roped and dragged across the ring for everyone to have a good laugh at him. As he was finally getting up, someone in the stands yelled that he was not in New York anymore on this hilarious episode of “Impractical Jokers.”
