5 things we learned from “The Bro Code”

Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris), the “legen- … wait for it … -dary” womanizer from the CBS comedy “How I Met Your Mother” frequently quotes a “Bro Code” to get his pals to do (or not do) all sorts of things. Now the Bro Code is codified in paperback.

1The Bro Code does not really exist.*

2Women make good “wingmen” because they understand the subtle nature of female body language.

3Bros don’t speak French to one another.

4A woman is not too young to date if her age is greater or equal to half the Bro’s age plus seven (e.g.: if he’s 40, his youngest date should be at least 27).

5If a Bro gets a dog, it must be at least as tall as his knee when fully grown.

* We had to say that because Article 4 states that a Bro never divulges the existence of the Bro Code to women. It also says men have better vision, so they can see small type.
