Cut Me a Slice of That!

A tradition of the season in general and Thanksgiving in particular is pie.

Jason Segel as Marshall Eriksen on 'How I Met Your Mother' holding pasteboard with a Venn diagram whose red circle is labeled 'People Who Are Breaking My Heart' and blue circle is labeled 'People Who Are Shaking My Confidence Daily' with the shaded intersection reading 'Cecilia'

Okay, I know that's actually a Venn diagram, but it passes on account of being laugh-out-loud, pause-the-video-to-catch-your-breath funny. It's from How I Met Your Mother Episode 4.22, wherein Marshall develops an addiction to posterboard visual aids ("This is a pie chart describing my favorite bars. And this is a bar graph describing my favorite pies."). You're welcome.

I've tried... I've tried so hard. But people just try to suck me into that show. I watched the first 2 eps of season 1, thought, "meh" and that was it for me. People have since told me it's REALLY funny.

And now, that chart photo might have pushed me over the edge. That was hysterical, and I haven't even seen that ep. ;)

Y'know, Nik, HIMYM is one big flashback — plus it involves the occasional flashforward and alternate reality. I hear you like that stuff. 8^) While it's occasionally too sitcom broad for me, the storytelling is very inventive, the characters are compelling, and it has Willow.
