Those poor kids. It looks like they'll be listening to their dad's incredibly long-winded story of how he met their mother. (Seriously, how long does it take to tell the story?) One of the show's stars, Neil Patrick Harris, tweeted that How I Met Your Mother has finally gotten the go-ahead for two more seasons which probably means it will be a long, long time before we find out who the mother is, but hey, we get to see more Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan's antics, so yay!
And just because everything's more fun when NPH says it, here's what he said, "HIMYM picked up for 2 more years! Yahoo! With so much job security, I should buy something extravagant. Like a pony. Or some gold teeth!" Aww.
