"How I Met Your Mother" fans know the comedy's writers love to reference pop culture. One constant joke is that the characters discuss websites they've seen or created. But did you know the "How I Met Your Mother" staff actually creates these fake websites as hilarious show tie-ins? Some pages don't exist anymore (slapcountdown.com, for example), but here are 10 current funny websites made by "How I Met Your Mother" staff:
1. TedMosbyIsAJerk.com - In "Ted Mosby, Architect," Barney goes home with a girl after telling her his name is Ted Mosby. When he leaves after their encounter, the girl creates this website bashing Ted (Barney).
