Why You Should Watch How I Met Your Mother

Barney explains why guys should wait 3 days to call a girl:

Jesus waited THREE days to come back to life. It was perfect! If he had only waited ONE day, a lot of people wouldn’t have even heard he died. They’d be all, “Hey Jesus, what up?” and Jesus would probably be like, “What up? I DIED yesterday!” and they’d be all, “Uhh, you look pretty alive to me, dude…” and then Jesus would have to explain how he was resurrected, and how it was a miracle, and the dude’d be like “Uhh okay, whatever you say, bro…” And he’s not gonna come back on a SATURDAY. Everybody’s busy, doing chores, workin’ the loom, trimmin’ the beard, NO. He waited the perfect number of days, THREE. Plus it’s SUNDAY, so everyone’s in church already, and they’re all in there like “Oh no, Jesus is DEAD”, and then BAM! He bursts in the back door, runnin’ up the aisle, everyone’s totally psyched, and FYI, that’s when he invented the high five. That’s why we wait three days to call a woman, because that’s how long Jesus wants us to wait….True story.

    I don’t get that show. I mean, I love what I’ve seen of Barney on commercials, and I have to hand it to Neil Patrick Harris — he plays an excellent super-STRAIGHT guy, know what I mean? Like there’s straight guys and there’s super-STRAIGHT guys like Barney, who’s a jerk but is endearing because he doesn’t realize it.

    But what does all this have to do with meeting your mother? And whose mother? Help me, Life is Not a Movie! You’re my only hope!

      @Barb, Ok, I am here to save the day. The narrator is the guy Ted when he’s older and he’s talking to his teenager children. He’s telling them the story of how he met their mother. We have no idea who she is, that’s part of the mystery. I don’t think most of the viewers really care anymore, we just like the stories.

    Cool, thanks for the explanation! Now it all makes sense. I’ve only ever seen the commercials. 🙂
