Calling Barney Stinson? Remember to *66 not Sixty-Ni-Nevermind

The highlight of last night's Superbowl was seeing Barney Stinson holding up his Date Soliciting number!

I started calling and after a few busy signals (there's a sound we all expected to be extinct by now!) got through!!!! THEN I found the sound file on YouTube.Com but there's no telling how long it will be up so click fast!

Here's what the recorded message said, with my own comments to make sure you get the inflection:

"That, Lebron, is how you shoot a free throw. (that part was said kind of far from the phone, obviously to make you think the call was interrupting his coaching)

Hey, Barney Stinson speaking. A recording? No, this is really me! Anyway, glad you called 'cause you sound really special. (really was stressed and there was a short pause here)

Let's get to know each other. What are your hobbies? (two second pause)

(Shrieking laugh) Oh my god, I like that too! Wow, I'm really feeling a connection here. You know, I never do this but what the heck. Let's meet up at MacLaren's Bar at oh, say, 3:45 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 12, 2016. (the time and date were said in an automated, mechanical voice and had me dialing back to see if I would get a different date time)

I can't wait to meet you. (voice gets soft and serious) I love you."

So anyway I kept trying to call back and even *66'ed (continue dialing a busy number until it rings) but no dice. Luckily I have access to the internet so I know everyone else got the same recording.

****ALSO my friend sez Barney's sign was twice as AWESOME because Call Barney Stinson stresses CBS's call letters and tv crews will typically zoom in on and photograph people with signs featuring their call letters.

Legen----hope you're not lactose intolerant because the last part of that word is-----dary!
