‘How I Met Your Mother’ Slap Bet Countdown

DescriptionFans of could probably belt out the Robin Sparkes’ tune ‘Let’s Go To the Mall’ if asked.  But the classic episode that introduced us to Robin’s Canadian pop star alter-ego was memorable for one other thing:  the Slap Bet.  Barney and Marshall (with Lily as commissioner) instituted the game when they were busy trying to discover Robin’s dirty secret.  The loser (a.k.a Barney) would be slapped five times by the winner.  The question was:  Would he rather be slapped 5 times at once?  Or would he rather have them spread out for an indefinite period of time?  (Stupidly—Barney chose the latter).

Well those who enjoyed the first two smacks should be thrilled to know the remaining three are still on the table.  To pique our interest, the producers of HIMYM have created a ‘Slap Countdown’ on the show’s website.  So get yourself prepped for the slap heard round the world.  (BTW, if you have difficulty doing the math—the timer is counting down to the Nov. 19th episode.)
