    If TV Guide is to be believed, How I Met Your Mother is repeating the Slap Bet episode tonight.
    The episode was arguably the funniest thing on television in 2006.

    Well done, Jay. It was a minute or two in before I realized it, too late to go to the computer to post the alert.

    Great stuff on a second viewing, too.

    An episode of How I Met Your Mother.

    In it, we learn Robin was an 80s teen pop singer in Canada. She did a mall tour ala Tiffany which is why she refuses to go to malls now. Barney bets Marshall during the course of the show. The stakes are either 10 slaps delivered all at once or five delivered without warning at any time.

    It is pee your pants hilarious.

    That was the best episode ever of that show. I downloaded Let's Go to the Mall and put it on wife's Ipod every once in a while just for shits and giggles.

    Further proof of the genius of the slap bet...

    Actually, the 10 or five was a combination of losing the bet and punishment for premature slappage.

    Best episode ever... I'd probably go as far as to say it ranks with any sitcom episode since Seinfeld went off the air... There are a few Office episodes that would be up there and there was the Raymond episode where Robert's girlfriend eats flies. This one is right there...

    I just discovered that they changed the title to "Robin Sparkles" on my Tivo...

    Not cool... :)

    Just watched it online. Truly excellent.
    Just for the record: I'd take my 10 slaps like a man, rather than the five over forever.
