    I don't much like HIMYM but that was a great line. It will become a buzzword in this house

    I've never watched this show before, but I really enjoyed that episode. I might have to set the Tivo for this one.

    Is that a euphemism for taking a dump, or taking care of "business"?

    depends on the magazine. but if it's not "playboy" or omething of that ilk, i believe it's well-known tip-off that you'll be sitting on the throne for a while.

    On the show, it depends which character was using it. Lots of masturbation references on the CBS comedies tonight.

    Well for Barney, it was "taking care of business."

    That was funny as hell. This show continues to make me laugh my ass off.

    Anybody else notice the "BABY BUMP WATCH" promo on the top corner of Marshall's magazine?

    Nice little wink to the fans about the two women on the show both being pregnant.

    Wait, Scherbatsky is preggos? Damn it!

    Anyway. In my bathroom, I have one of those magazine holder things. I pretty much know where each magazine is at this point, seeing how much time I spend in there.

    The problem comes when I go in and see one of them moved after someone else has been in there (which would only be guests I invite over).

    I just want to scream for some reason after I see that. Its not that they read a magazine, but that they "read a magazine" in my bathroom!

    HIMYM continues to shine with last night's episode.

    What was funny was that they used a classic HIMYM euphemism and then Barney says that he thought that they were talking about masturbation. And they went back to using the euphemism.

    I also liked that in the little montage at the end, Marshall had a bran muffin, coffee and a burrito.

    Thought that NPH has done a great acting job in this story line, but it was a way too broad last night. I understand that it had to be that way given the nature of the episode, but I thought that it detracted from the Robin-Barney story.

    Agreed, Webster. Plus I was bothered that Lilly was the only one to notice Barney was acting strange when Robin and Ted started talking about having sex.
