The story to the kids starts with the story of how Ted met Blah Blah (Abigail Spencer). Yes, it’s true, Future Ted (not to be confused with Future Dwight of Office fame) didn’t remember this girl’s name, so she went by Blah Blah in this story. Flashback a few minutes and Ted tells the gang that he met her online but Blah Blah will make up a story about some cooking class because she’s embarrassed. According to Barney, the only hot chicks that patrol the internet for dudes are crazy. And thus we are introduced to Barney’s Hot/Crazy scale. A beautiful Picture Pages-esque demo by Barney and we understand that the craziness of a girl can only be offset but her relative hotness. (Why do I feel like I’m writing a NUMB3RS recap right now?).
