A fictional place where you tell people you will send them to be punished or send them to compete. The Gauntlet, although strcitly imaginary, is like an arena with traps, like giant balls that chase after you and spikes that come from the floor. It is used as a comical threat that doesn't really mean anything.
Ms. Middlebrooks was pissed at me. She's probably going to send me to The Gauntlet.
