Murr is eager to punish Joe, but the guys decided on Murr as the Loser (the Well... running gag is introduced here). He was dressed like a piñata had lifted up by a crane. Kids went up and started wacking him with sticks. Then Q, Sal, and Joe started hitting him with sticks. Then finally, he was hit by Joe's brother-in-law because in a previous challenge, Murr had groped his wife's (Joe's sister's) butt. The punishment does not end until candy comes out. However, after the candy comes out, the other Jokers and everyone else go for ice cream, leaving Murr suspended hanging on the crane.
