‘How I Met Your Mother’: It's Britney OMG It's Britney


As teased 1,000,000 times during NCAA basketball coverage yesterday, Britney Spears will be appearing on How I Met Your Mother Monday night. A multitude of clips released on the Internet suggest that she might be … not bad! We mean, she's set the bar really low, so much of the online commentary is of the "She doesn't fall over drunk during her scene!" variety, but we think there's a possibility she might be kind of charming and funny in her scenes, if a tiny bit awkward. It's too bad she won't be a recurring character; if only there were some opening on How I Met Your Mother for a female role that would be introduced now, just as Ted's luck is starting to turn…

*HOLY SHIT*

We take back everything we wrote on Tuesday. Britney Spears is definitely going to be "your mother" on How I Met Your Mother! And those two kids Bob Saget is talking to? They're Bizarro-world Sean Preston and Jaden! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG BRITNEY IS BACK!
