On tonight’s episode of ‘Impractical Jokers,’ a tribute to boys who never grow up, Tru-TV, the disclaimer rings across the screen stating the warning that the following program contains scenes of graphic stupidity among four lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other belly laughs and outrageous stunts from the four guys fans have come to know and love. Joe Gatto, Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn and James “Murr” Murray were all born without filters and will do just about anything to win a challenge on this episode untitled, Episode 224.
As the episode begins, they are in a mall and must dip a French fry into someone else’s food without permission. For this one, they team up and the team with the least amount of unauthorized dips will lose. Murr & Joe are up first. One will distract people, as the other attempts to dip. The Murr faked a sneezing fit while Joe did the deed. Sal used a distraction of a sizable lump in the front of his pants, while Q attempted to do the dipping. From ass scratching to hiding under a food court table, the team of Joe & Murr is down by one.
Next, the guys posed as workers at Jimbo’s Bar & Grill in Seaside Heights, on the Jersey shore. They had to say or do whatever the others told them to do, or they lose. Sal was behind the counter taking an order and had to wave a foot-long hotdog at a couple who were ordering. Then he had to fling a chicken wing at a man who was walking by. When he did, the wing hit something and splattered on his hat. Did the seagulls send him a present? No, the customer came in demanding to know who threw the chicken finger at him. Sal lost that one because he would not admit he threw it. Joe was next at the counter as he told male customers that they could pop their shirts off in the restaurant. He even told an older woman. she could do the same. When Q was up, he told a customer that the guy in the kitchen showed him his junk. Murr delivered food to a table and had about two pounds of sand in his pants that he had to shake until it all dropped. Murr had to continue handing a man pickles while he was ordering his food. With Sal & Q losing that one, the score is tied with each guy having a loss.
For the next challenge, they were in a park looking for a girl named Beth; anyone named Beth will do. Q tried to find a Beth and even got a bite of a girl’s sandwich. When he found a Beth, he was home free, but Joe lost the challenge and the episode. What demeaning thing will he have to do?
Joe had to walk his effeminate dog named Cannoli with bows in her hair. It was 5 p.m. and the streets were full of busy people as he strolled along Wall Street in New York City wearing a bumble bee costume. He must keep walking until someone tells him that he is cuter than that adorable dog. Because the outfit did not work, they made him change into another outfit; this one was a cowboy, complete with the boots and hat. Just one problem; his ass was sticking out of the two holes in the pants. Next he was a bride and the dog had a tuxedo, finally someone told him he was cuter than the dog and the challenge was over; however, not until the guys got to throw rice at the blushing bride on this episode of ‘Impractical Jokers.’
