A Riddle That's Really A GAS!

A man was driving down the road and ran out of gas. At that moment, a bee flew in his window. The bee said, "What's the problem?" "I'm out of gas," the man replied. The bee told the man to wait right there and flew away. Minutes later, an entire swarm of bees flew to his car and into his gas tank. After a few minutes, the bees flew out. "Try it now," said one bee. The man turned the ignition key and the car started right up. "Wow!" the man exclaimed, "what did you put in my gas tank"?

Your Name:.


Where is Gull Lake? Is there any Sea Gulls there or has it been over run with McCarty's and Beer? -Kevin McCarty
ED NOTE: Yeah. The second one.

 Help! I need computer support. I mean low-tech computer emotional support. I have dial-up access to the Internet. My family says it is too slow and that I should enter this century. What do you think? -Mike
ED NOTE: Michael, Michael, Michael. Don't worry, I am typing this answer really slow, so your dial-up can catch up until you. Enter into this century and get something faster. You can pretend that you are a Joel Zumaya fastball.


So Editor. Southwest Air kicks off this girl for what she's wearing, though I'm not seeing much difference in how she was dressed from how SWA's flight attendants dressed in the 70's. In fact I would say Kyla Ebbert looks more like a "Sunny California Girl", which I can not say about the 1970's flight attendants -Amanda McCarty
ED NOTE: I agree whole-heartedly. Southwest Air has had a double standard dating back to the 1970's, and it all started when they let an shirtless Larry McCarty on board.

Ed... The Metro keeps getting better 'n' better. Don't know how you do it. Got a special kick out of "Up Chuck's Alley" and "Bev's Route." And the tribute to old men? Awesome! Keep up the good work. -Mike M.
ED NOTE: The thanks goes out to Chuck, Bev, Jerry, Gwenda, yourself, and everyone that submits their work. They should all take a bow. I just slap it all together on the web.

Kelly, It's always so good to see you smiling... had a chance to look at the wedding pictures in the McCarty Metro. I greatly admire the consistency with which you publish the site. I wish you health and pain free days and miracles. I wish you reasons to smile and laugh. -Angela
ED NOTE: Thanks Angela, and may God Bless you and Dennis.

Why do you have to "put your two cents in"... but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going?


Dumb Halloween Tricks

Pretend to be in a coma to see how long it takes your wife to pull the plug on you
Soap your neighbor's Windows XP
Wash and wax your neighbor's car, then pray for rain
Tipping cows more than 15%
Put aluminum foil orthodontic braces on the uneven teeth of neighborhood jack-o-lanterns
Rotate the planters on your neighbor's porch so their perennials no longer receive proper Southern exposure
Stand outside your neighbor's house and send them a blank email from your Palm Pilot... then run away before they can read it
Play "Pin the tail on the hemophiliac."
Personally verify that each trick-or-treater's costume is sufficiently flame-retardant
Crank-call a lone teenaged girl at her house, and saying at the end, "My Name Is Mike McCarty" 

Uh... Jabo!?!?
