piggy back stamper and stamp tramp
28 July 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Barney has discovered that his ex-fiancée, Quinn, has returned to stripping at the Lusty Leopard. Since appearing there would make things awkward for both of them, Barney decides to find a new strip club. Soon enough, numerous strip clubs woo him over even as a Lusty Leopard employee begs him to stay; Barney is one of the club's most loyal patrons. Marshall tells the gang that he saw an old law school classmate Brad while going to work. brad had been a bum for past two years so he recommends brad to his boss. while Ted is accused to be a piggy back stamper so he digs up his old video diaries. while robin becomes barney's strip club sponsor.

this is a good episode though good plot but a teeny-tiny weak on the jokes. still a good episode
