How I Met Your Mother Quiz: How Well Do You Know Barney Stinson?

The quiz is going to be legen...wait for it...



Since arriving on our screens back in 2005, How I Met Your Mother's Barney Stinson became a firm sitcom favourite, a status he'd cement over the course of nine years, 208 episodes, and countless 'awesomes', 'wait for its' and 'suit ups'.

A womaniser bordering on being sociopathic, the (second) best friend of Ted Mosby, and a man with an endless array of suits, Barney moved from being a catchphrase-spouting sidekick to part of the show's beating heart, developing a relationship with Robin and, eventually, changing his ways for good.

Briliantly and hilariously portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris, Barney is perhaps the most well-known and recognisable How I Met Your Mother character, but just how well do you know him? Can you separate Barney from Swarley? Know the difference between him and his medical doctor doppelganger? Then SUIT UP and say 'Challenge Accepted!'.

1. Who Does Barney Think His Father Is?


NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far. A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
