How I Met Your Mother‘s Easter Eggs For The SuperFans
Last night’s How I Met Your Mother went crazy with the inside jokes and internet discoveries. There were at least three:
1. Ted’s “Dr. X” college DJ persona
The gang makes fun of Ted for including his college stint as a “top secret” college radio DJ at Wesleyan as the mysterious “Dr. X” on his resume at age 30. Dr. X has a website, too, looking straight out of the ’90s and featuring Josh Radnor’s Dr. X rants about sweatshops, the “jocktocracy,” and the Ivy League.
2. Lily’s Tummy
This wasn’t an “easter egg” per se, but it was pretty amusing that they included a subplot about Lily being a champion hot dog eater, showing her twice after winning a match. Alyson Hanigan is pregnant in real life, you see:
3. Barney’s Video Resume
Every episode of every TV show should have at least one of these. For the nerds.
