The Metro TMZ crew wanted to get a clear explanation on how the unemployment rate is figured. Lo and Behold, after traveling to heaven, Bob Hope put the reporters in touch with Bud Abbot and Lou Costello, who explaned it perfectly.

COSTELLO:  I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.
ABBOTT:  Good Subject. Terrible Times. It's 9%.
COSTELLO: That many people are   out of work?
ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.
COSTELLO: You just said  9%.
ABBOTT: 9% Unemployed.
COSTELLO: Right 9% out of work.
ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.
COSTELLO: Okay, so it's 16% unemployed.
ABBOTT: No, that's 9%...
COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 9% or 16%?
ABBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.
COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, you can't count the "Out of Work" as the unemployed. You have to look for work to be  unemployed.
ABBOTT: No, you miss my point.
COSTELLO: What point?
ABBOTT: Someone who doesn't look for work, can't be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn't be fair.
COSTELLO: To whom?
ABBOTT: The unemployed.
COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work.
ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work stopped looking. They gave up. And, if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.
COSTELLO: So if you're off the unemployment roles, that would count as less unemployment?
ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!
COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don't look for work?
ABBOTT: Absolutely! That's how you get 9%. Otherwise it would be 16%. You don't want to read about 16% unemployment, do ya?
COSTELLO: That would be frightening.
ABBOTT: Absolutely.
COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number?
ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.
COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?
ABBOTT: Correct.
COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if  you stop looking for a job?
ABBOTT: Bingo.
COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to just stop looking for work.
ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like an economist.
COSTELLO: I don't even know what the hell I just said!
ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like a politician.


The Blimey Cow 72 Hour Summer Film Festival 2012 was held between July 13-15, 2012. Contestants had exactly 72 hours to write, shoot, and edit a short film. They had to include one of the posted genres, one of the posted phrases, and one of the posted objects.

The McCarty Metro's own Larry McCarty, Jerry McCarty and Steve McCarty all created their own entries for the competition. Below are the movies they, and their family and friends created. As a side note, the Editor of the McCarty Metro gives all movies a rousing round of applause.
