The award-winning CBS series “How I Met Your Mother” (HIMYM) will always be missed by fans since its finale on March 31, 2014. Despite being gone on air for more than a year now, the unique humor of “HIMYM” remained not only in the hearts and video collections of fans, but also in its fake and hilarious websites. Read on to know the 10 funniest fake sites from “HIMYM.”
On “HIMYM” Season 5 Episode 8 entitled “The Playbook,” Barney Stinson, played by Neil Patrick Harris, introduced his leather-bound playbook to his friends. The Playbook had all the techniques and schemes of Barney just to pick up girls. Included in the playbook was “The Lorenzo Von Matterhorn” which required Barney to pretend as a world-famous celebrity. The website is similar to Wikipedia.
This website was part of the Lorenzo Von Matterhorn act. Barney created a fake website showing that he had a medical condition called “Phallumegaly” or “bigness of penis.”
Barney also created another fake website to show that he was a dedicated hot air balloon traveler.
The last fake website introduced by Barney under the Von Matterhorn technique was to prove that he was a billionaire from manufacturing chocolate, ponies, chocolate ponies, walk-in closets, cute shoes and female orgasms.
On Season 4’s seventh episode “Not a Father’s Day,” Barney received a call from one of her women telling him about her pregnancy scare. Later, he rejoiced knowing that it was just a false alarm. Because of intense relief, he created his own holiday called Not a Fathers’ Day. He made a website to sell his merchandise like “World’s Greatest Not a Dad” mugs and “Who’s Not Your Daddy” shirts.
Lily Aldrin, played by Alyson Hannigan, was furious on her husband in Episode 19 “Everything Must Go” from the third season. Marshall Eriksen, played by Jason Segel, forced Lily to sell her expensive clothes and accessories to pay for the repair of their apartment’s crooked floor. He showed Lily the website he created where they can sell their stuff. Getting hysterical about the idea, Lily typed in her own words “Guy forces his wife to dress in a garbage bag for the next three years” on the browser. The couple was shocked that the website existed.
On Season 7 Episode 4 entitled “The Stinson Missile Crisis,” Barney gave more examples of his ridiculous techniques just to get laid. One of which was pretending to be a doctor who specializes in breast reduction surgery.
Since the success of Barney’s breast reduction craze, he immediately created another fake website to promote a lawyer who strongly fights against Dr. Stinson. Despite the childish move in adding a fake mustache to hide his identity, Barney still became successful in picking up girls.
On Season 4’s 18th episode “Old King Clancy,” Robin Scherbatsky, played by Cobie Smulders, claimed that she almost hooked up with a Canadian celebrity who had a crazy obsession with a Canadian sex act. She let Lily, Marshall and Barney guess the celebrity and the sex act. The curious trio used the website to supplement their guesses. Alan Thicke played a special role in the site.
Lastly, the fan favorite TedMosbyIsAJerk.com was heard first on Season 3 Episode 14 entitled “The Bracket.” The gang searched for the mystery girl who was sabotaging Barney’s pickup attempts. They had no choice but to trace Barney’s angriest exes. One of which was a waitress who got fooled by Barney pretending to be Ted Mosby, played by Josh Radnor. Because of hatred, she created a website to warn women to stay away from Ted. A hilarious song dedicated for Ted continuously entertains the site’s visitors.
