If you've watched any March Madness at all, then you've seen this promo for "How I Met Your Mother" with a sure-to-be epically unsexy guest role for Britney Spears.  I saw this on Thursday or Friday for the first time, didn't recognize Britney, and instantly forgot it.  Then I saw it again and thought, "Oh, Britney Spears," then forgot it again.  For whatever reason, though — probably because someone said "sex" — CBS is getting criticized for the promo.  I don't understand what the problem is.  It's not like anyone's gonna actually watch "How I Met Your Mother."

More interesting?  How I met your mother.  I occasionally cruise Overeaters Anonymous for desperate women, and there she was, finding solace in a chocolate bearclaw while crying greasy tears.

Blog Synergy-y UPDATE: WWTDD has a Britney clip from tonight's "How I met Your Mother."  In a stunning coup for Fat Penguin Media, WWTDD also thinks Britney is unsexy and the show sucks.
