Ed. Thanks for mentioning about Southwest Airlines dress code. I remember Kelly getting kicked off of the plane on the way to the Bahamas because of his baggy plastic gym shorts. I believe the flight attendant said, "Hey Mon, you can't come on Da Plane with Big Jim and Da twins hanging all over Da seat" -Eric Swan
ED NOTE: The reason I got kicked off was because I told them that Big Jim & the twins were supposed to fly free.
Kelly. As I sit here slamming back another one, I was wondering what McCarty would win Dancing With The Stars ... if they had been stars? Well shoot, those dancing aren't stars, so what's the difference? -Left handed and Two Left Feet
ED NOTE: Without a doubt... ME! You can even ask my 4th grade Square Dancing partner from Parkman Elementary, Lynne Rohde. She is a faithful subscriber to the Metro, and can still doe-see-doe with the best of 'em.
Dear Editor, This is to notify you that I am planning legal action against The Metro for including that damn bubble game in the previous Metro. I played the game for hours only to have my hand go numb. The game never ends. Do you have the number for a good lawyer? -Only able to use the left hand
ED NOTE: I guess that really is going to put a cramp on your style, huh? 1-800-CALL-TONY
Kelly. I want you to know that I filled up my gas tank this morning and filled it the slowest that I could. I don't know if your gas tips are truly accurate, but I'm following them anyway. Thanks so much for that. -Lynne
ED NOTE: I found out that is an old wives tale, told to me by my old wife. Also Lynne, if I am found dead in the near future, don't buy Margaret's accident theory.
Dear Editor. Thanks for the bonus 1992 edition of The Metro. To think, at one time I thought carbon paper was cutting edge technology! Gotta tell ya, this Internet thing is a flash in the pan. - Mike
ED NOTE: I understand that the Grand Rapids Press still uses "carbon paper technology". My goodness... I can't fathom just how hard you have to press when drawing that Popeye cartoon.
To The Editor - If you stand too close to a bon fire is it a weanee roast or chestnuts roasting by an open fire? -Smoldering
ED NOTE: Oh I get it... you want me to lower myself into participating in some potty humor. One of my subscribers Millard P. says that I use too much, so I am stopping this right now. Suffice it to say that I bring to the party a 5 hour log, but I do always practice safe burning.
