Doogie Howser IS Barney Stinson! (Thanks to imdb.com)

I love that www.imdb.com can solve long running arguments between mr.ncot and me!

I knew that "Barney Stimpson" (in How I met your mother) used to be Doogie Howser (in Doogie Howser, MD, - late 80s sitcom, remember the clunky laptop at the end with the "message" for that episode? predates Carrie Bradshaw by a decade or so!)

Actor in both cases, Neil Patrick Harris: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000439/

Doogies's closing thougts via 80s blue screen laptop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1WnfMFUqWQ
and Carrie's version 2 decades or more later on apple (of course): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_6wtILhM50

My husband was convinced it was this guy (older brother from Malcom in the middle): http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0557733/

I know I'm a nerd (with a good brain for faces) and I love being proved right :-)

Ha, ha and double ha!
