The Funniest Running Jokes on How I Met Your Mother

If you're a diehard fan of a comedy series, there's nothing like following along every episode and being rewarded with running jokes that feel like they were written just for you. Whether you quote these running jokes to your friends, watch YouTube compilations of them over and over, or just feel a sense of superiority when you catch one that no one else would, a good recurring bit on TV is like nothing else. 

For fans of How I Met Your Mother, the best running jokes are all at once bizarre, complex, and delightfully simple. The funniest running jokes on How I Met Your Mother wouldn't make much sense to the people who have only seen a few episodes of the show, but to those of us who follow along with the most complex sitcom ever created, they are masterpieces threaded throughout a fine Barney Stinson-esque suit of genius. The HIMYM jokes that we love are there for us through the ups and the downs, the off-the-wall humor and the heartbreaking drama, all rooted in the characters that we love to spend time with and love even more to laugh at. 

So head down to MacLaren's, tell your children every detail about the romantic encounters of your 20s and 30s, and WAIT-FOR-IT... Because, kids, it's time to tell the story of when the best running jokes on How I Met Your Mother were voted on by the people of Ranker. *Cue theme song.*
