Somehow the ones my husband and I submitted at the slam didn't get up there. Oh well, mine was pretty standard: food disasters. But I liked his a lot:

"It was better the second time"
my ideas are stories about 1.knowing yourself 2. freedom 3. something to be thankful for. general important Thanksgiving themes that each storyteller can give their own special twist to.
How about -- in honor of the season:

"No, Thanks! -- gifts and blessings we regret"
