Putting the fun back in dysfunctional.
Barney vs Christian
I have loved How I Met Your Mother since the first season. The first two seasons were great and then the writer’s strike hit and when it came back on, it just didn’t have the same oomph. I mean, I still watch it of course, but it’s lost it’s charm.
The show just really went a few seasons too long. But no matter how annoying Ted’s search for love or Marshall and Lily doing anything gets for viewers. We always have
Barney Stinson. Played by
Dr. Doogie Howser, child M.D. Neil Patrick Harris, who just seems like a genuinely nice guy.
Anyway, Barney’s job is shrouded in mystery. When asked what he does at work he replies “please” and whenever people show him at work, he isn’t actually doing anything work related.
See right there. Please.
Anyway, I was reading 50 Shades of Grey recap. And they mentioned something about Christian Grey’s business.
And I was all like “What business?” because he rarely does any work. He texts and emails Ana a lot. He says he’s in meetings. But he rarely does anything? I mean don’t most multibillionaire, international business owners and CEOs travel pretty frequently? Instead in the three books he takes a few business calls and makes business decisions (buying companies) based on where his girlfriend works so he can further control her life.
Anyway, I’d rather marry Barney Stinson. We’d make it work Barney, I swear!
