Barneyism of the Week - The Three Days Rule

“Barney, the Three Days Rule is insane.
I mean, who even came up with that?” - Ted


Seriously, Jesus started the whole wait three days thing.
He waited three days to come back to life.
It was perfect.
If he had only waited one day
a lot of people wouldn’t have even heard that he’d died.
They’d be all, “Hey Jesus, what up?”
And Jesus would probably be all like,
“What Up? I died yesterday.”
And then they’d be all, “Um, you look pretty alive to me dude.”
And then Jesus would have to explain how he was resurrected
and how it was a miracle.
And then the dude would be like, “Ok, whatever you say bro.”

”Wow, ancient dialogue sounds so stilted now.” - Robin

And he’s not going to come back on a Saturday,
everybody’s busy doing chores,
working the loom, trimming their beards.
No, he waits the exact right number of days - three.

“Ok I promise I’ll wait three days just please stop talking” - Ted

Plus, it’s Sunday, so everyone’s in church already.
They’re all in there going, “Oh no Jesus is dead.”

Then BAM he bursts through the back door
runs up the aisle, everyone’s totally psyched.
And F.Y.I. that’s when he invited the high five.

Three days Ted.
We wait three days to call a woman
because that’s how long Jesus wants us to wait.

True story.
