Board Now

Pie is a tradition of the season.

Okay, I know that’s actually a Venn diagram, not a pie chart, but it passes on account
of being laugh-out-loud, pause-the-video-to-catch-your-breath funny. It’s from How I Met Your Mother Episode 4.22, wherein Marshall develops an addiction to poster-board visual aids: “This is a pie chart describing my favorite bars. And this is a bar graph describing my favorite pies.” You’re welcome.

  1. I've tried... I've tried so hard. But people just try to suck me into that show. I watched the first 2 eps of season 1, thought, "meh" and that was it for me. People have since told me it's REALLY funny.

    And now, that chart photo might have pushed me over the edge. That was hysterical, and I haven't even seen that ep. ;)

  2. Y'know, Nik, HIMYM is one big flashback — plus it involves the occasional flashforward and alternate reality. I hear you like that stuff. 8^) While it's occasionally too sitcom broad for me, the storytelling is very inventive, the characters are compelling, and it has Willow.
