And if he won’t even “get up on” a fatty, can you really imagine him dating – or marrying – one?! Barney’s abhorrence of fat women is so well-known that those two quotes are presented on some fan sites as contradictory errors in continuity.A later episode prompted even more confusion – season 5, episode 23 “The Wedding Bride”.Seriously, I have been known to shout “NOBODY ASKED YOU PATRICE!!! But those jokes were making fun of her for being naive, for being clingy, for being sweet to an annoying degree.I was comfortable laughing, because those are obviously fictional traits attributed to this character. They had to find someone who Robin wouldn’t believe Barney would date, and they did it in the most efficient way possible.One hit particularly close to home for me (CUBS FAN) :) Three were labeled “SLEPT WITH BARNEY”; one among those three was carried by an overweight woman.“In Perfect Week, Jim Nantz claimed, that Barney never slept with a fatty.
“Of course he can only see her as a cog in his process to win the prize that is Robin.” And what’s worse than the show’s insistence on this as the certainty is how unapologetic it is about the ordeal.
This was analyzed to such a degree precisely because it’s so contrary to Barney’s character.
Some will note that Barney burned the Playbook, and he has obviously changed his views on marriage and long-term relationships. But those changes took literally years to pan out, and we saw a ton of development leading up to his new perspective on such things.

I covered this in my first in-depth HIMYM post, titled Here’s what it comes down to: Barney would NEVER date Patrice seriously. Beyond that, there is NO possible way that Ted, Lily, and Marshall would have actually believed that he was actually involved with Patrice.
I have my issues with the show, though, and my main annoyance continues to be the metric ton of fat jokes that they’ve put out over the seasons.
