How I Met Your Mother’s The Bro Code Is Set To Be Published

The Blot Says... hasn’t had that much How I Met Your Mother news this summer, but this post should make up for that a little bit. According to the Chicago Tribune’s Maureen Ryan, “The Bro Code, a book of advice by Barney Stinson of How I Met Your Mother, will be on bookshelves in late November.” (link) How cool is that? First Neil Patrick Harris gets nominated for an Emmy and now this.

How I Met Your Mother
How I Met Your Mother - Barney and Robin In Bed The Morning After Sleeping TogetherYou may remember The Bro Code from the HIMYM Season 3 episode “The Goat” where Barney explained that it was a list he had compiled “of all the things a true male friend – a bro – should or should never do to his pals.” (link) As it turns out, Barney violated his very own Bro Code when he slept with his best friend Ted’s ex-girlfriend, Robyn. From what we’ve seen already, The Bro Code is basically one giant Barney-ism, and I for one can’t wait to find out more about the rules that Barney lives his life by.

How I Met Your Mother - An Excerpt From The Bro Code
Earlier this summer a deal was struck to bring The Bro Code to life, which sent “co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas [along] with Matthew Kuhn, the staff writer who is responsible for Barney's blog,” scrambling to complete this now legen…wait for it…dary tomb of how every Bro should live their life. (link) Thomas views this upcoming How I Met Your Mother book as “just this off-network continuation of the Barney legend,” a legend The Blot hopes will continue to grow for many seasons to come.

Look for The Bro Code to hit stores in late November 2008, making the book an excellent holiday gift for that special someone in your life (hint, hint!).
