Bro Codes To Live By
Writing my blogs I have put a lot of How I Met Your Mother references. One of the characters of How I Met Your Mother is Barney Stinson ( Neil Patrick Harris ). He is a womanizer. Drinks Scotch with class. Wears suits like Frank Sinatra did, but better. Barney has names for a lot of situations. Plays to pick up women. The most important rule or should I say code that he follows...the "Bro Code". Today, I will make a list of bro codes and add some from the greatest show ever "How I Met Your Mother"!!!! that everyone should follow.
