Fans of the hit TV series How I Met Your Mother know all about Barney Stinson’s Bro Code. Since we’re fans of Neil Patrick Harris and HIMYM here are The Lowdown Blog, we think it’s only appropriate that the Man Lab brings you the Bro Code so you have a handy reference of all the rules guys should live by. The bond between two men is stronger than that between a man and a woman because on an average, men are stronger than women. 2) A bro is always entitled to do something stupid as long as the rest of his bros are all doing it. If only one Spanish dude were to run down the street in front of a bunch of angry bulls, people would have been like “Dude, come on!! The license to be stupid is why we have bros in the first place.3) If a bro gets a dog, it must be at least as tall as his knee when full-grown.Published by Simon & Schuster, the book covers 150 rules written in articles of what "bros" should or should not do.Bro — there are some rules in life that you follow, no questions asked, never talk sh*t about your homie in front of their girlfriend or prospective lady friend, always reciprocate a lending hand when helping a friend move, and do not, under any circumstances, f*ck your best bro’s wife. If you choose to step outside of the code, there will be hell to pay.
In popular culture, the Bro Code is a friendship etiquette to be followed among men.
In the Seinfeld episode "The Stranded", which aired on November 27 that year, Jerry Seinfeld says the following monologue, in one of his stand-up bits: All plans between men are tentative.
If one man should suddenly have an opportunity to pursue a woman, it's like these two guys never met each other ever in life. And it doesn't matter how important the arrangements are [...] "Bros before hoes" (that is, "friends before women") is a popular slang expression about how men should not abandon their male friends in order to pursue or embark on relationships with women.
Break these rules and you can kiss your bromance goodbye.
Sadly, a few celebrities have violated that sacred second rule and have put there own selfish pleasures before their friend.
