No Crossing for Cold Cuts

Border crossing is a subject that has been the focus of much heated political debate. No matter which side of the “fence” you're on, Adriana's winning story from Monday's “Close Calls” Slam reemphasizes the dire need for border control reform between the U.S. and Mexico.

Why shouldn’t we extend the same rights to chickens and as well as pigs? To parrots as well as parakeets? Avocados as well as tomatoes? Don’t miss Adriana’s hilarious winning story starring four pounds of ham and a delicious smelling vehicle in the video below.

Congratulations to Adria

na and to “Close Calls” Audience Favorite, Kate who’s story tells how mother-daughter relationships get complicated when your dating members of the same family. (Video below.) Stay tuned for videos from all of our “Close Calls” storytellers coming soon to our YouTube channel.
