    A Kind Gesture For A Living Legend

    From Redditor u/mikewurtz:

    As a teenager, Bob Saget visited Larry Fine (of the Three Stooges) at the hospital where he was receiving long-term care.

    In an interview with David Felman, Saget stated:

    I told my mother I wanted to meet Larry Fine personally, because I saw him speak at the school. He had a stroke and was onstage in a wheelchair talking about the old films and shorts they made years before and how difficult it was. I was compelled to hear about it. I had my mother drive me to the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills and I would visit Larry… 

    I would bring 8mm films because I had these silent films from Blackhawk Films out of Davenport, Iowa. And I ran a projector in his room…

    How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris once credited Bob Saget as the inspiration for Barney Stinson.

    In an interview with The Black Label, the actor stated: 

    My first big A-list party. And I walk in…and there in the middle of this giant great room, under a crystal chandelier, surrounded by a hoard of topless girls, just absolutely stunning women, tons of them, is Bob Saget wearing nothing but a pair of women’s thongs on his head and the biggest…smile…I’ve ever seen...

     So I’m standing there and I’m sure my jaw was on the floor, and Saget turns toward me, and I’ll never forget this, he says, 'Harris, don’t just stand there. Suit up!'

    And from that, Barney was born.
