Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)
I just liked that he still needed an outlet for the crazy. He stopped running plays, but he couldn't stop having crazy dreams/visions of new plays. So he naturally tried to get Ted in on it.
And it's bad from an emotional standpoint, but from knowing Barney, I'd suspect there's at least one more copy, or a digital one. The 'ceremonial' copy, the backup, and where's the extra backup
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by man. ~Jack Handey
