Britney Spears to appear on "How I Met Your Mother"

It's a side commentary on the state of sitcoms when they can't even get good guest starts anymore. I mean, remember when Brad Pitt was on Friends? That was sweet. Anyways, it looks like everyone's favourite never-ending trainwreck is all set to do a guest spot on "How I Met Your Mother". She'll be playing a doctor's receptionist, which will be a real departure for Spears. So far as I know, receptionists have to know how to read and stuff.

I don't watch the show, but it should be interesting to see how far Spears has progressed from Crossroads and her work on Will and Grace. Not far, I'm guessing, although she's easily addicted to a lot more substances now.

The show's producers have declined to comment on rumors that the show will be renamed in honour of Britney. Early favourites include "How I met a Human Wasteland" "How I Met Your Mother, Who is Also the Mother of a Sinister Brood of Paparazzi and Failed Rapper Spawn".

Got a show title idea? Leave it in the comments.

UPDATE: Britney gets an animated makeover! I guess there are limits to plastic surgery after all.
