Nation Shocked by How Often Men Surprise Themselves with Thoughts of Spanish Inquisition 

THE INTERNET — A new TikTok trend has everyone saying, “I did not see that coming.” When confronted with the question by their significant other, a shocking percentage of men admit they frequently surprise themselves with thoughts of the Spanish Inquisition. 

“I didn’t think it was real until I asked my boyfriend Greg,” revealed Morgan Zimmerman in a TikTok post scrolling the couple’s text thread, “I said, ‘how often are you surprised by your thoughts of the Spanish Inquisition?’ he said, ‘3 … 4 times a week. I’m never expecting it. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!’” 

Women have been sharing conversation snippets with their partners about how often the Spanish Inquisition sneaks up on them. In one video, a woman shares her boyfriend’s latest scare as he was sitting on the toilet at work. “I was scrolling on my phone when a strange feeling washed over me. Paralyzed with fear, I imagined the bathroom stall door getting kicked in by a trio of cardinals draped in red, accusing me of being a heretic and fighting for my life with my pants still around my ankles as they dragged me out.”

The videos have garnered millions of likes and shares in the last week, as men admit to the various triggers that send them spiraling-back to the fifteenth century. In one video, a text chain explains how easy it is, saying, “A colleague had told me how they were being pulled in multiple directions at work and, just like that, I was cast to the cold stone chambers that lay beneath the Spanish streets. I could hear the cranking of the rack wheel as the ropes pulled all four of my limbs simultaneously away from my body.” 

In another video, a woman scrolls texts with her husband where he explains how he was at the grocery store perusing the aisles when the fear struck. “I had reached for Betty Crocker’s Devil’s Food cake mix when I made eye contact with an employee. His red vest transformed into an inquisitor’s cloak. He accused me of cake heresy, and the next thing I knew, I was on trial for my life, defending my choice of cake.”

How and why thoughts of the Spanish Inquisition continue to surprise men is yet to be determined. Some see the phenomenon as evidence of reincarnation, as the subconscious mind breaks the threshold separating reality and memory. Others call it a coincidence. Regardless, one thing is for sure — there’s no escaping the Spanish Inquisition.
