Do I Know You?

Season 4, Episode 1
September 22, 2008

High five! I think I have just kicked this nasty little habit I developed and I am back on the “sleeping with everything that moves” wagon! Alright! High five!

I admit, my lonely and pathetic readers, I did slip for a moment. I slipped right off the sleeping around wagon and fell right into the “oh, my Barney! I think I love her” mud puddle. But, like any self respecting man (and I do mean MAN) I brushed off my suit, had it dry cleaned and pressed, then used its well-tailored charms to work my way back into the good graces of man many women everywhere.

How did I overcome my tragic dose of feelings? I remembered this, my dear friends:
Why I Like Bimbos, Part 1
They make me happy
They make me feel alive
They make me want to pretend to be a better man
They are confused
They have vacant, trusting stares
They have sluggish, unencumbered minds
They have daddy issues
They love me, or at least whoever I tell them “me” is
They are always there for me, you can always find one around
You can usually find one in a thin crust style
They make me feel even smarter than I normally do
They always have hydrogen peroxide in their cupboards, so if you get a cut, it’s safe to be with one of them
Their mouths usually hang open anyways
They always let you win at chess…or go fish…or chutes and ladders. And maybe the term isn’t “let you win…”
They aren’t Robin
Wait, Say what? How did that get in there?
More reasons I love BIMBOS (and not Robin, because clearly I do NOT love her) are to come…

Mary the Paralegal

Season 1 Episode 19
April 24, 2006

What. Up.

You know why I love awards ceremonies? Cuz everyone suits up. Except the ladies. They take off the suits and put on the tiny dresses. I love awards ceremonies. My friend Robin just won a Local Area Media Award, and I set my friend Ted up with a date for the evening.

Now, was Ted's blind date, who I got for him to make Robin jealous and make Ted a man:
a. a prostitute
b. a paralegal
c. actually a dude

Despite what Ted thought, she was REALLY a paralegal. Wouldn't have been too surprising if she wasn't since, statistic: 1 out of 8 women in America is a prostitute. It's true.

Lesson learned from the night though: treat every woman as if she is a sure thing and you know you can have her, and you can have her. Unless you are me. Then you aren't acting and you REALLY can have her as a sure thing. High five!

Nothing Good Happens After 2 A.M.

Season 1, Episode 18
April 10, 2006

Word! Sorry it has been so long since I last left you with my words of wisdom, but, you know how it is, girls just BEGGING to show the Barnsicle a good time. Whatevs. I'm sure you found something great to entertain yourselves, What's that? You didn't? You were alone, miserable and boring without me....ya, I kinda saw that coming.

Last night I got to show my friend Marshall and his wife Lily that nothing good happens BEFORE 2 AM. Nothing legendary can occur if you stop the occurrings at the le...and never get to the gen- the de- the airy! I think Lily now realizes this fact since, after 2 AM we had the night. What night?

Remember that night Lily kicked Korean Elvis in the nards? Ya...THAT night.

Life Among the Gorillas

Season 1, Episode 17
March 20, 2006


Steak Sauce: Phenomenal, top-notch. Etymology: Derived from the dominance of steak sauce brand A-1.
Conform: To learn to fit in and make friends. To not conform is to be dismissed and rejected.

This is going to be legen-wait for it-dary! My awesome friend Marshall started working in our legal department here at work today. I had to take some time to incorporate him into the corporate atmosphere, but I think he's getting it now. At first he didn't even know the above definitions. Duh. Where is he from? Canada?

He also didn't get the office bonding ritual of "who would you rather...go!" Oh, you're not awesome enough to have heard of it? Here, try this one on.

It's snowing outside, and you are sitting warm near your fireplace on your bear skin rug. Knocky Knocky, your front doors a rocky when Jennifer Anniston asks to come in from the cold, and body heat is the only answer. Just as you are about to let her in, your back door starts pounding cuz jennifer Love Hewitt wants in too. Ohh, 2 Jennifers, 1 rug. What do you do? Go!

Wrong Answers: I don’t have a bear skin rug, I don't have a back door, I’m engaged, We’re still engaged, They need to wait while I run to the store for some "rain coats."
Acceptable answers: That girl from Friends, The Hottie who only LOOKS like jail bait, Both, Oh that's so boring cuz I had Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Garner last week, I would call Barney and let him have his awesomeness with both of them.

Zip, Zip, Zip

Season 1, Episode 14
February 6, 2006

This weekend was filled with ups and downs here at the fortress of Barnitude. My friend Ted (really, I don;t get why I feel the need to write about this dude. He doesn't even wear suits) got himself a girlfriend. next thing I know, he abandons me for a little cupcake. No, for once that wasn't sexual, she is a baker and he is litterally abandoning me for cupcakes. Well, and the nasty.

Point being, I was super low, realizing I was al alone this weekend.

Down- Ted left me for a girl who actually uses whipped cream for its intended purpose.

Up- Then our friend Robbin said she would come with me for my bro'ings on about town.

Down- Robin is Canadian.

Up- She is smoking hot and even better when she (wait for it) suited up! Yes ladies, you too can suit up with positive results! So Robin and I had a great time being bro's. I even almost got her to hook up with a lesbian! Oh ya! High Five!

Down- when I birthday suited up at Robin's request, I discovered that "playing battleship" is only a euphemism in the good ol' US of A, since this Canadian chick actually...get this...wanted to play battle ship. Left my little, scratch that, BIG Barney cold and sunk.

Up- I'm me and I'm awesome and legen-dary. Done.

True Story- So after I left Robin, who claims she has "feelings" for Ted (gag me, right?) I stopped to comfort this poor girl who was crying on the stoop of the apartment building next door. Until I kicked her out of my bed at about 3 in the morning, she was looking very comfortable! Ya, I'm real down about Robin. Ha.

Barnacle out!

The Duel

Season 1, Episode 8
November 14, 2005

My Dear Hotties and (Not So) Competition:
I henceforth declare the following- From this moment on, there shall exists in the world of dating and mating a Lemon Law, which for copyright purposes shall be dubbed "The Barney Law."

It shall opperate on the following conditions: all persons involved in a mutually decided upon date have exactly 5 minutes from the moment of meeting to decide if the date will procede for the rest of the night or not. Within the first five minutes of coming together (high five!) either party can call the date off for any reason.

Thus signed,
Your Minister of Pimp
Barney Stinson

Yeah, you read it right. I intelligently and dutifully created the dating lemon law. I was just so sick of ending up spending time and money on uglies, prudes, dudes dressed at chicks and, worst of all, old chicks. In the first week of its creation I was able to use it twice, and...get this...had it used on me! It is working, pass it on.

Now, you may say "But Barney, I don't want someone Barney Lawing me. How could you take it?"

Easy. The chick who used it on me did so because I called her Jackie OOOOHHHH YESS! Clearly she did not recognize the wonderful humor in it because she didn't understand the pure ecstasy, since I would have been the first man who could have made her say it. Oh well, it teaches you to use the law with caution!

As for you being rejected...well you probably suck and aren't cool like me. Expect to have the law used against you. In time you will learn to be dead inside and not care.

Barney Law on, my followers!

Ted-out: to overthink. See also "Ted-up".

Ted-up: to overthink with disastrous consequences. For example, "Billy Tedded-up when he analyzed Tina's fluttering eyes to mean she wanted to make out. In fact, Tina had accidentally put in her boyfriend, the far-sighted quarterback's, contacts"
